MTI Film has announced that its Cortex product line now includes full support for Sony’s recently developed XAVC recording format. XAVC is included in Cortex::Control Dailies DP, Pro, Studio and Ultimate editions and in the Stream, Pro, Studio and Ultimate editions of Cortex::Convey. Support for Sony RAW and SR Masterformats is already included in all Cortex editions including the free edition of Cortex::Control Dailies.

Sony’s XAVC format, which is H.264 based, is a dedicated 4K format developed to foster 4K production in areas beyond feature films, including television, documentaries and commercials. The format provides a cost efficient digital imaging eco-system for 4K and high frame rate content. Sony’s F55 and F5 cameras include the XAVC codec.

“MTI Film is committed to supporting all cameras and all camera formats employed by our customers,” says Belinda S. Merritt, director of international business development. “We are very excited to add XAVC support in order to accommodate the growing number of productions using Sony’s F55 and F5 cameras in 4K workflows.”

MTI Film’s Cortex::Control Dailies is an all-in-one dailies processing solution offering a suite of powerful tools for camera media playback, color, synchronization and transcoding. It is available in five editions, Starter, DP, Pro, Studio and Ultimate, with features tailored to different types of users including cinematographers, DITs, on-set/near-set post production operations, visual effects houses and post production facilities. Cortex::Convey is a transcoding solution that can create deliverables needed for review, editorial and mastering.
