INSTANT RECORD & PLAYBACK

After each recording, QTAKE can automatically switch from LIVE to DISK mode, making your shot review just a click away.  Insert markers and chapters during recording and use multiple in/out points for series of takes!

AUTO RECORD

QTAKE features Auto Recording for RED One, Epic, Scarlet and ARRI Alexa using special flags embedded into SDI stream.  For all other digital cameras, QTAKE provides auto recording based on rec-run timecode.  You won’t miss any more takes!

 

CAMERA METADATA

Digital Cinema cameras from RED or ARRI can embed additional information into SDI signal.  QTAKE can read this data and store it to improve project workflow.  By reading camera media filename, QTAKE files can be used for conform-ready offline editing.

 

STREAMING

Using the STREAM module, you can capture & send picture over Wi-Fi directly to iPads & iPhones on-set and remotely.  Talk to us about streaming & data packages.

 

CAPTURE CODECS

Choose the codec that fits your post-production workflow or just make your selection based on quality/space requirement ratio.  QTAKE supports all flavours of Apple ProRes, Apple Intermediate, DVCPRO HD and Uncompressed movie codecs.

H.265 PROXY CLIPS

While recording original signal, QTAKE can simultaneously record processed frames to create streamable dailies.  Use Light Iron’s LivePlay to stream proxy clips to iPad immediately after take is recorded.

 

OFF-SPEED & RAMPS

In addition to standard playback controls, you can playback clips with variable speed or create customizable ramps.  Add multiple keyframes with speed control to create ramps instantly without rendering.

SCOPES & FALSE COLOUR

Using SCOPES Module, you can analyse live or playback image using real-time Waveform, Vectorscope and Histogram tools.  In addition, this module provides adjustable False Colour mode for analysing image exposure.

 

EXTENSIVE CLIP DATABASE

Shot logging is the essential part of professional video assist.  QTAKE can store standard scene data as well as extended meta-data like camera settings and various shot notes.  And you can enter every field before, during or after recording.

 

VISUAL SHOT BROWSER

QTAKE has the most intuitive clip browser to help you find the right take in a second.  It uses the combination of tree-based view and thumbnails to achieve this.  You can filter clips by rating to reveal only the Director’s favourite ones.

 

GPU IMAGE PROCESSING

Forget the hardware boxes for picture adjustments.  Now you can move, scale and rotate your image, apply colour correction and display format mask – both for live signal and playback.  No need for hardware mixers – create live composites inside QTAKE.

 

REAL-TIME COMPOSITE

With QTAKE you can prepare the VFX shots with ease.  Create real-time 2 layer composite with various blend-modes, blue/greenscreen keying or wipe transition.  You can use any two sources for overlay, live or disk.

RENDER OUTPUT

Do you need more than 2 layers for your VFX shot?  Just process out your composite and add infinite number of layers, rendering to uncompressed RGB format without quality loss.

 

STEREOSCOPY

QTAKE HDx2 can perform live preview, capture and playback directly to a 3D monitor.  QTAKE processes left and right eye SDI feed into variety of industry standard formats.  Using MUXER module single QTAKE system can serve two 3D rigs.

 

3D LUTS & CDL

Digital cameras usually provide flat, low contrast output.  QTAKE can perform real-time colour grading using industry standard CDL colour corrections.  In addition you can import and apply Iridas 3D LUTS, that will be stored separately for each clip.

 

ON-SET EDITING

Check the action timing or continuity with the built-in editing tool.  QTAKE features intuitive single-track NLE capable of dual-view trimming to help you visually adjust every cut.  You can change the FX and speed of each shot on a timeline or use the match-frame feature to find the source shot.

 

EXPORT TO 3RD PARTY APPS

Do you need more sophisticated editing application to satisfy your needs?  You can export your project to Final Cut Pro with the captured media and the clip meta-data.  QTAKE will create FCP bins for all scenes and shots!

 

DRAG & DROP IMPORT

Import video, audio, stills and CDL colour corrections.  Using predefined filename parser, clips can be imported from AJA KiPro, Sound Devices PIX and other external recorders while storing scene data contained in filenames.

PDF REPORT

Export shooting reports with thumbnails and metadata to PDF documents.  Reports will include every important piece of meta-data associated with media.  Filter clip selection by shooting day, scene and other clip properties.

 

NETWORK LINK

QTAKE can control 8 systems for simultaneous capture and playback of up to 18 cameras or 9 stereoscopic 3D rigs.  You can use wired or wireless network to easily connect QTAKE slave machines.

 

GPI TRIGGERING

You can trigger background playback and at the same time record a new clip, while monitoring live composite.  Or use frame-by-frame recording triggered by motion-control rig to shoot scale-model shots.

QTAKE 3D CONTROL

We have implemented UDP based remote control protocol to allow integration with 3rd party systems.  This protocol is used in QTAKE 3D Control iOS application used by stereographers to remotely pull post-convergence on parallel 3d rig shots.

3D RIG SUPPORT

QTAKE can read and store 3D meta-data UDP feed from 3ality Technica SIP Box.  Using OSD feature you can display video output with rig data burn-in for live image and playback.

QTAKE MONITOR

Turns any iOS device into wireless on-set monitor with a very low latency of just 1.5 frames.  In addition to dual camera monitoring, one QTAKE Monitor device can use the TALKBACK feature to communicate with the QTAKE Operator.  Read more…
