QTAKE is a software which, with the right hardware, is a universal tool for camera monitoring and provides all departments with the right data.
  • Up to 4 cameras can be recorded simultaneously and played back synchronously.
  • It helps the director in creativity to keep track of scene connections and timing.
  • It allows the DOP and the Gaffer to rotate the colors of the image.
  • The vfx team can be shown the right background in a green/blue screen shot, in real time!
  • The crew is able to keep an eye on the camera’s view on the iPad or iPhone and thus intervene accordingly.
  • If the customer wants to see his logo in the image to determine the correct framing of the shot, this is no problem.
  • The editor already gets its material sorted by scenes.
  • All data can be collected from the set and handed over to postproduction as PDF or XML.
