SGO accelerates its high-end post production products with the NVIDIA Quadro K5200. This new graphics board provides significantly higher performance and greater data handling capability than the previous generation Quadro, for SGO’s Mamba FX and Mistika products, which are utilised in the world’s biggest film, television and commercial productions.
“The NVIDIA Quadro K5200 is the perfect partner for SGO’s Mamba FX. With phenomenal performance and 8GB of on-board memory, visual effects compositors can work at even higher resolutions, bit depths and frame rates with ever more complex composites, while maintaining industry-leading throughput,” says SGO’s CEO, Miguel Angel Doncel.
SGO’s Mamba FX is a high performance but very low cost visual effects compositing suite. It costs from just 239 Euros and is available for free trial. It can be downloaded from the SGO shop or from www.MambaTutorials.com, where Mamba FX’s extensive compositing tools are explained in a library of online video tutorials.
“Our new Quadro line-up is at the center of visual computing workflows,” says Greg Estes, VP Enterprise Marketing and GM of Media & Entertainment at NVIDIA. “SGO’s highly optimised programming with NVIDIA’s advanced graphics processing have enabled SGO Mistika and Mamba FX to provide ground-breaking real-time post production environments for 4K, Stereo 3D and high-frame rate productions.”
Credits spanning every type of production across the globe include commercials for Emirates Airlines, television drama for BSkyB and feature films such as Peter Chan’s American Dreams in China, Edge of Tomorrow, Stalingrad, The Hobbit Trilogy, Switch, Walking With Dinosaurs (for BBC Earth), The Amazing Spiderman 2 and many others. Mistika also played a major role in David Attenborough’s Natural History Museum Alive (3D) 4K film which received a BAFTA TV Award this year.
NVIDIA Quadro K5200 graphics boards will be supported in Mistika’s V8.4 software and Mamba FX’s version 2.0, showcased this month at IBC at the SGO Booth A11, Hall 6, at The RAI in Amsterdam.
