Sister Application to CONTROL Dailies Automates Production of Dailies Deliverables (February 18, 2008)
DMN Newswire--2008-2-18--MTI Film, a world leading developer of tools used in digital film restoration, digital film mastering and digital dailies processing, will offer demonstrations of CONVEY for CONTROL Dailies at the Hollywood Post Alliances 14th Annual HPA Technology Retreat, beginning February 19th in Rancho Mirage, California. CONVEY represents a major advance in the processing of digital dailies by automating the creation of file-based deliverables?resulting in significant time savings for busy post production operations.

The demonstrations of CONVEY at HPA will be the most comprehensive ever. They will include a live demo of the products AUTO-DVD module for the automated creation of fully-authored DVDs with visible watermarking.

?CONVEY makes the process of producing dailies deliverables faster, easier and more secure, said MTI Film CEO Larry Chernoff. ?CONVEY works seamlessly and concurrently with CONTROL Dailies, handling encoding for all deliverable formats as well as other routine tasks that formerly required the time of a technician and additional, costly technology.

More than a year in development, CONVEY has undergone beta testing at Fotokem and will be installed at E-Film in Hollywood this February. Designed as a sister application to CONTROL Dailies, CONVEY shares CONTROL Dailies project management, database and scan-list parameters and applies that information toward the production of deliverables.

As dailies are processed and approved in CONTROL Dailies, CONVEY encodes the data into the required deliverable formats. The product supports most popular file formats, including MPEG-2, MPEG-4, Avid DNxHD, Windows Media 9, QuickTime and AVI. User defined bit rates, aspect ratios, window burns and audio mixes are applied automatically. Templates and configurations can be saved and recalled later, eliminating redundant input and set-up. Similarly, DVD menus can be created in CONVEY and recalled later as part of the process of automated DVD authoring.

?A list of recipients can be defined at the project level as well as the media requirements for each, noted MTI Film Product Manager David McClure. ?At the end of the process, DVDs are burned, each one watermarked with the recipients name. DVDs authored by CONVEY include such features as viewer selectable sort orders and chapter points for quickly navigating between takes.

At HPA, MTI Film also plans to reveal CORRECT V7, the latest version of its award-winning digital film restoration and finishing software. CORRECT V7 includes a streamlined user interface, enhanced Paint and Scratch Removal tools, and many other enhancements intended to help restoration artists work more efficiently. A formal release of CORRECT V7is expected at NAB in April.

Since 1997 MTI Film has offered award winning software applications to the post-production industry for film and video image correction and dailies facilitation. MTI's applications support collaborative digital work-flows which scale to significantly increase throughput.  This NAB, MTI Film unveils revolutionary advances to their products: Correct V7, Control Dailies 5, and Convey with AutoDVD.
