MTI Film unveiled its new on-location image and data management tool, Cortex::Capture at NAB 2012. This simple software application includes all the functionality needed by DITs and data wranglers, with a price tag of just $95.
Cortex::Capture provides onset playback of a dozen common camera formats, including Sony SRMaster and F65, RED, ARRIRAW, DNxHD and ProRes. It includes tools for maintaining color decisions by importing and setting looks that can be exported as stills, ASC CDLs and LUTs. Its project management features include commenting on frame or clips and creating templates with color, audio and burn-in options for use in dailies and throughout the postproduction process. All metadata, including color, generated in Capture can be exported and shared with other Cortex products at the post facility, ensuring consistency.
AT NAB, MTI film is demonstrating the software in booth SL14706, both on a laptop and on a PC workstation fitted with external storage in a road case.
