MTI Film Advances Collaborative Restoration with New Correct DRS PixelStax History

The Digital Restoration Software's New History Format Allows Artists to Collaborate Across the Room or Across the Globe.

HOLLYWOOD, CA – February 10, 2011 – Correct DRS, the industry-leading digital restoration software from MTI Film has developed a new History format to allow better collaboration among artists across the room or across the globe. The new PixelStax feature will be included in Correct DRS Version 10, releasing during Summer 2011. The new PixelStax feature will be included in Correct DRS Version 10, releasing during Summer 2011.
PixelStax was born out of the need for facilities to share work among artists and operators of varying skill levels or in multiple locations. With this new history format, entry-level operators can complete an initial round of dust-busting then pass on the work for review by an expert artist or by Quality Control, along with the full history and metadata from the original work. This gives the user completing the second pass complete access to the history undo functions within Correct DRS, even if their station is not on the same SAN or network as the original user.  This model can be extended to cover work sub-contracted to another facility or even outsourced overseas.

PixelStax also offers benefits for installations already using a shared work environment.  Multiple users can access the same clips concurrently, so expert artists can review sections as they are being completed and take on more difficult problems as they are found.  

As Bridgid O’Donnell, Production Manager for Restoration Services observes, “Work can now be easily divided and re-divided among a varying number of artists as needed.  This allows work to be passed around more efficiently when different skills are required or when certain sections of a reel just require more hands.”  Larry Chernoff, CEO, adds, “Not only are administrative tasks reduced, but it really offers the freedom to adapt to the workflow requirements of any given project.”

Since 1997 MTI Film has provided award winning software applications to the post-production industry with a focus on technology for digital film restoration and digital dailies.    MTI now provides post production services for Television, Film and Commercial projects, as well as Film Restoration services. MTI Film products include Correct DRS™ v9, Control Dailies v7, Control Dailies DA for Digital Acquisition Cameras, Control Color and the Convey Deliverables package.  For more information visit www.mtifilm.com.

    Jobs shipped to India and China. American classic movies owned by Sony and Fox shipped to China. Once U.S. restoration post houses setting up overseas offices to avoid the labor rates and medical benefits. No one is hiring. Once a limited skill has gone the way of hiring kids in shipping to pick dirt, now thats not good enough, they have to save more and send it to China. Now a thriving industry has become a Chinese college course that they get credit for and not even pay them. College degree sweat shop over seas to produce sub quality work. Why is this fair because America sold out its cinema history along with it morals. Cheap is always better, the dollar rules so who do you complain to? Sony who distributes the work , nope they dont care. Sony’s Grover Crisp gets hailed by his film restorations , I’m sure he eats well as U.S. artists keep struggling to stay afloat as his movies get restored .
