Media L, one of Korea’s top post-production companies, has recently purchased a Mistika Ultima system to revolutionise its HDR capabilities. Visiting IBC was a major influence in their decision to invest in SGO’s technology to help service their ongoing HDR requirements.
SGO further enhances performance of its Mistika and Mamba FX post-production products with support of the new NVIDIA Quadro M6000 24GB GPU to handle extremely large, complex files for feature film and broadcast projects.
With Virtual Reality being widely touted as the “Next Frontier” of post-production innovation, SGO is already prepared with game-changing solutions for the challenges it presents to the industry. Mistika will be a revolutionary product for any company that wants to lead the way in VR.
2016 is a huge year for SGO, with ground-breaking developments ready to be unveiled at NAB in just a few weeks, SGO have also been working on an overarching corporate identity designed to position SGO as “the leading provider of high-end technology solutions for broadcast, corporate, commercial and film’.
SGO will be carving its own path this NAB, bringing its award-winning finishing system Mistika to the limelight and unveiling a multitude of incredible future-proof developments that have been in the pipeline for the past few years. Mistika will be the frontier of Virtual Reality, equipping professionals with the most innovative and accessible virtual toolsets and workflows. With an NAB highlight of VR in post, SGO will reveal its distinctive, forward thinking 3D feature-sets, VR Mode and VR Device connections, depicting how Mistika provides Colour Grading, HDR, Stereo and Compositing in Virtual Reality, in just one system.
Already a veteran in the industry, Geoff Mills joined SGO in 2009 as Director of Sales, and was very quickly promoted to head the company’s global sales and operations as Group Director, where he spearheaded the overall international sales strategy. In his new role as Managing Director, he will continue to focus on driving strong customer relationships and further accelerate revenue performance for SGO.
Award-winning software developer SGO and industry-leading video hardware developer AJA Video Systems today announce their dynamic integration partnership. SGO’s flagship colour grading and finishing post-production system Mistika is now fully compatible with AJA’s line of KONA and Corvid video capture and playback cards, resulting in optimised video output. The alliance provides customers with high-quality delivery outcomes and finely tuned feature-sets to further enhance workflows. The combination of the new Mistika version with the AJA hardware boosts support for new extreme video formats including 4K Stereo 3D dual-link, even at HFR frame-rates up to 60p.
SGO spearheads innovation for those who aspire to be the best, and is delighted to partner with Canon at BVE this year, to display the latest pioneering advancements in HDR technology. Mistika will drive a dynamic end-to-end HDR-4K “Glass-to-Glass” colour-process workflow demonstration on Canon’s stand L30 in the HDR zone.
Mistika-related projects, post-produced by SGO customers El Colorado, Free Your Mind and Next Lab & New Media were deservedly acknowledged with four prestigious Goya® Awards. Fourteen nominations also went to Antaviana Films, El Colorado and Free Your Mind. SGO congratulates its customers for their outstanding use of Mistika and highly-respected accolades.
