SGO and Digital Vision World have developed and strengthened their partnership to deliver exceptional technology, enhanced post-production workflows and offer real choice to the Creative Industry with newly introduced DVO Tools for Mistika.
This is not the first time that the two companies have joined forces – years ago SGO implemented Digital Vision Precision Panel to their finishing hero-suite Mistika Ultima, which was just the beginning of this slightly unorthodox relationship, says Geoff Mills, Managing Director at SGO. “This has allowed us to do unexpected things for the benefit of our users and creative industry in general. We want to offer exceptional solutions and technology that can really make a difference. DVO Tools for Mistika allows us to do just that by not having to reinvent ‘the wheel’ and to focus on the things we want to do.”
Mark Coleman, Director of Global Sales at Digital Vision World says, “We are extremely pleased to continue this unique partnership with SGO. We believe that this is a major step forward for the creative industry, bringing together two great technologies for the sole purpose of bettering the users experience and helping them to create amazing content.”
The integration of this world-class image processing tools additionally leverages the power and flexibility of Mistika Technology. With Color & VFX toolsets being seamlessly integrated to Mistika Boutique, users are now able to work with any of the DVO Tools for Mistika within the same unified environment independently of what the principle task is – removing artefacts, sharpening, noise reduction or even image restoration.
