3D Day 2018: Discussing new rules, standards and technical challenges faced during the production of a TV Series


This year’s SGO 3D Day presented in partnership with Canon will again take place in Madrid on Monday 3rd December 2018. The spotlight for the event will be on the technical aspects of producing and post-producing a TV Series.


The increased demand for the TV Series and consequently it’s production is experiencing exponential growth around the globe. With this increase, especially from on-demand providers, new rules and standards have become a requirement which in turn create challenges reflected in the entire content production chain – from shooting to color correction and VFX but also in the quality control and final content distribution.

This gives SGO and Canon an ideal opportunity to present an Expert Panel with the participation of some the most distinguished Spanish companies in the audiovisual sector including Movistar+, Free Your Mind and  Antaviana  Films.

Attendees of the 3D Day, now in it’s 23rd year, will also have a unique chance to learn about Photography in Fashion and Advertising and delve deep into ACES workflow – from the initial shot to viewing on an HDR display.

The event will be held at the Film Academy (Academia de Cine) on Monday 3rd December from 6 pm to 8 pm. The evening will continue with a traditional Spanish fiesta in Bar & Restaurant Lola 09, not to be missed!

El consumo y consecuentemente la producción de las series están experimentando un crecimiento exponencial tanto a nivel global como también en España.

SGO’s Remarkable Pizzazz Captivates World-Class Creatives at IBC

Enriching Mistika Sessions Engaged Audiences On All Levels

This IBC we did something Different, feel the SGO vibe…

The committed SGO team presented another inspirational experience at IBC with panache, sporting a striking stand-space, demonstrating that Mistika and Mamba FX post production systems provide the only real differentiator for companies wanting to stand out from the competition. Creative professionals including leading broadcasters, colourists, compositors, post facilities and famous film studios paid the stand a visit to suss-out the very latest technology on display. The new “Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens” and “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation” trailers, finished in Mistika by customer Bad Robot, proved a big hit.

The absorbing sessions presented by SGO’s Marketing Manager Sofia Pensado and Mistika Application Specialist Peter Amies throughout the 5-day show, drew numerous delegates to SGO’s stand. Intriguing topics engaged everyone about the challenges of post producing high production-value long-form drama and documentaries, referring to ONSIGHT as a Mistika customer success story. How Mistika enables artists to stand out in a fiercely competitive arena when post producing high-end commercials was demonstrated with projects by Norwegian post facility Hocus Focus. Cutting-edge workflows used in some of the biggest blockbusters, such as Fotokem’s work on “Carrier 3D” were a highlight, as well as how to prepare for the future in post with HDR, VR and 8K looming. SGO’s main overview session explored what colour-finishing really means in the ever-changing world of broadcast and post, by validating how colourists can successfully integrate colour, online, VFX and delivery in one powerful commercially-viable Mistika system.


Development highlights of the Mistika and Mamba FX systems were also on show. Performance-leading HDR-enhancing grading features linked to the stylish Mistika Precision finishing control surface, as well as an entirely new media management sub-system were launched. SGO’s brand new “UniColour” tool also caused a great deal of excitement, as it allows seamless bi-directional transfers between many different colour spaces. This single tool removes substantial headaches from modern professional workflows. Also on show, was a sneak preview of SGO’s all new 3D Keyer – arguably the most powerful and intuitive 3D keyer available.


Furthermore, Mistika’s “Additional Mistika User Log-in” programme announced at NAB2015, enables customers to add systems without having to purchase extra licenses, making the ownership of multiple Mistika systems extremely affordable without compromising or devaluing SGO technology. This exclusive approach is an alternative option for customers to help them increase artistic output and profits.


Also new this IBC, Boris FX Graffiti has now been integrated into SGO’s low cost, node-based compositing software Mamba FX. The supporting Windows version will be ready to ship in October 2015, with Linux and Mac versions to follow soon.

In addition, SGO proudly partnered with Canon, displaying pioneering advancements in HDR technology with a red-hot Mistika system holding the reins of an end-to-end HDR-4K colour-process workflow demonstration on the Canon booth.


It was another successful show for SGO all round and Marketing Manager Sofia Pensado enthusiastically closes with these remarks, “Our customers continue to inspire us! The incredibly positive feedback we received at IBC has been overwhelming. We feel privileged to provide progressive high-end technology to ambitious creative companies that prepare and think ahead, further advancing the industry to even greater heights with high-calibre quality work on amazing projects.”
