Nice Shoes Adds MTI Film’s Control Dailies


MTI Film has installed three Control Dailies systems at Nice Shoes, New York. The new systems will enable the facility to expand beyond its core market in commercial postproduction, into film and episodic TV.

The company is eager to tap into New York’s growing film and television market. “We’ve wanted to extend our successful commercial post services into the entertainment area for some time now,” said Nice Shoes CEO Dominic Pandolfino. “So moving forward with MTI’s Control Dailies provides us with the added ability to service customers in this very important space.”

As part of the installation, MTI Film and Nice Shoes have entered into a strategic partnership allowing for full-service, bicoastal dailies and finishing in a compatible environment linked by a dedicated high-speed internet connection. “MTI’s proven Control Dailies technology coupled with our talent base will provide producers with the comfort of knowing that Nice Shoes is able to expertly finish entertainment projects in an established environment,” said Nice Shoes’ Robert Keske.

Control Dailies is a system for processing dailies from any camera format. Camera media of all types can be ingested in a single timeline for easy audio-image synchronization, metadata logging, color correction and automated background rendering of digital deliverables.

Nice Shoes partner Chris Ryan and Keske traveled to Los Angeles to demo Control Dailies. “Their conclusion was that Control Dailies is the best and most complete solution they’ve seen in the space,” said Pandolfino.

“MTI Film is very pleased to have its technology introduced to the New York entertainment market through Nice Shoes,” says MTI Film CEO Larry Chernoff. “The quality of Nice Shoes’ creative and engineering staff ensures that customers will be well served.”

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
