MTI Film’s Control Dailies Lands at NBC Universal
MTI Film announced today that Cortex::ControlDailies, its new on-set and near-set system unveiled at this year's NAB, has been purchased by NBC Universal to process and manage its digital dailies. The node-based solution grew out of MTI Film's Control Dailies Enterprise, which NBC Universal has used for the past two years as more of its television productions have been transitioning from tape-based to digital acquistion. Supported cameras include the Sony F65, RED Epic, ARRI Alexa, Canon C300/C500 and 5D/7D, GoPro and Phantom.
ControlDailies will be used at NBC Universal in tandem with Convey, an encoding application that processes editorial and review deliverables while various takes are approved. Thanks to a centralized database, multiple users can work on more than one project at once. In a prepared statement, MTI Film's David McClure, vice president of product development, noted that a single operator can process dailies for several productions in a single shift, even as media drops are made. NBC Universal is also expanding its digital film restoration with additional seats of MTI Film’s Correct DRS, which it has been using since 2006.
