For over 100 years, Cooke has been at the centre of the filmmaking business not only renowned for their famous “Cooke Look” but also leading by introducing new technologies such as the awarded and acclaimed /i Lens Data interface and protocol providing previously unavailable details of lens information individual and unique to every lens such as mapped distortion and shading and even inertial data. Not processed by cameras to full extent, MasterLockitPlus collects all these data, stamped with timecode, and makes them available as sidecar files or as raw data over WiFi in real time. This allows for unprecedented precision and ease in post and VFX heavy productions.
