Set to screen workflow solution includes new features for IMF and Dolby Vision packaging, QC and more.
At NAB Show 2018, MTI Film introduced CORTEX v5, the latest version of its set-to-screen family of workflow solutions. In addition to the powerful Dailies processing tools, the improved software includes significant, new features for IMF, DCP, and Dolby Vision packaging. The new graphs and metrics reports provide QC tools for Dead Pixel Detection and Correction, MaxCLL/MaxFLL levels, Code values, IRE and NITS values. CORTEX v5 includes many other new features to manage media throughout the production lifecycle and meet complex delivery requirements.
Offering support for all popular delivery formats, CORTEX has become the first choice for IMF creation, quality control and delivery due to its flexibility, robust features and ease of use. “Facilities have embraced CORTEX as a complete IMF solution,” said MTI Film Director of Product Development Randy Reck. “The new v5 adds more features and is even easier to use. Users can get their projects done faster and with greater confidence.”
Highlights of v5 include new Edit Tool functions to support Dolby Vision. Users can more easily manage complex metadata by overwriting, inserting, deleting or copying and pasting Dolby Vision metadata directly into compositions. Similarly, a new IMF Tree function makes it simpler to organize mastering projects by allowing users to present compositions and supplementals alongside renders. Sub-folders have also been added for improved media management.
To support quality control workflows, CORTEX’s Quality Analysis node now allows for the creation of graphs and reports for analyzing media for a variety of metrics, including color levels, bit rate, MaxCLL/MaxFLL, and dead pixels.
Other new and enhanced features include:
- Software CMU for Dolby Vision
- Simultaneous HDR and SDR SDI outputs
- ProRes IMF packaging
- ProRes insert editing
- Improved dead pixel repair
- Improved MTI-Samsung up-res
- 24-channel audio
- DCP packaging
- Waveform and Vectorscope scaling for HDR and SDR
- Streamlined edit functions
