MTI Film Joins Sony Electronics' F65 Training Program as Workflow Partner
HOLLYWOOD— MTI Film was recently selected by Sony Electronics’ Professional Solutions of America Group as a workflow partner in its newly-opened Digital Motion Picture Center (DMPC). The Center offers hands-on training for directors, cinematographers and other film and television professionals in the use of Sony’s F65 CineAlta camera and production workflows that support it.
As part of the program, MTI Film will be demonstrating its new Cortex family of products. Cortex is a revolutionary platform that brings coherence and portability to the process of managing digital assets from the set to the screen. Cortex products support the Sony F65 camera and its SRMASTER digital media format by providing a simple way to perform playback and review, make color decisions, conduct transcoding operations, prepare dailies, and carry out other common tasks.
“MTI Film is proud of this opportunity to join the DMPC and assist filmmakers in making the transition from film to digital acquisition,” said MTI Film Vice President of Product Development David McClure. “We are excited about the possibilities the F65 offers for filmmakers and we are committed to providing them with tools to get the most from this camera and to use it with maximum ease and efficiency.”
The F65 camera is already in use on a number of motion picture productions. They include Sony Pictures’ After Earth and Universal’s Oblivion. With its 14 stops dynamic range, wider color gamut and 4K spatial resolution, the F65 has generated enormous interest among filmmakers worldwide.
The DMPC will be offering introductory F65 classes every Wednesday from 9:30 am - 4 pm. Those interested in further information or reservations, should contact Belinda S Merritt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
