Leicester, England – Cooke Optics, the Academy Award-winning manufacturer of precision lenses, is to team up with Codex, the manufacturer of high-end digital equipment for film and television production, and The Pixel Farm, the developer of image processing technologies, to develop and deliver the next generation of metadata capture for film and digital cameras.
The system will build on the capabilities of /i Technology, the system originally developed by Cooke to record key lens and camera data to aid post-production teams. /i Technology data streamlines both production and post-production, saving significant time and costs while eliminating guesswork. It allows monitoring and transfer of key lens data including focus distance, depth of field, focal zoom position and iris setting. DPs can also save and upload lens profiles onto memory cards for easy zoom lens swap, lens calibration, lens synchronisation, post-production analysis. More details about the new system will be announced in the coming months.
