“Unwrapped VR images routinely demand high resolutions and the additional GPU memory of the Quadro M6000 will help Mistika users maintain real-time performance, as they finesse their projects with Mistika’s unique VR features.” Miguel Angel Doncel, CEO and Founder of SGO
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.
SGO elevates performance of its Mistika and Mamba FX post production products with support for the new NVIDIA® Quadro® M6000 graphics processing unit. This latest GPU is built on NVIDIA’s Maxwell architecture and provides increased performance, which allows SGO’s customers to work even more efficiently with ever-more demanding projects.
SGO’s Mistika post production system, which leverages NVIDIA CUDA programming and is exclusively accelerated by NVIDIA GPUs, is already the envy of competitors because of the real-time creative experience it provides users. Even at 4K and beyond, Mistika allows artists to compose their images without lengthy and distracting breaks for rendering. Adding the new Quadro M6000 extends Mistika’s real-time performance further to include more complicated processes to ensure unrestricted creativity. Mistika can also make use of multiple internal GPU cards, as well as harness the power of remote GPU and CPU processing power, for almost limitless scalability.
“NVIDIA’s continual developments help SGO to provide more creative and more efficient solutions for our customers, letting them stand out from their competitors by offering better, faster and more flexible and powerful services to their clients,” says SGO CEO Miguel Angel Doncel.
“The Quadro M6000 is the world’s most powerful pro graphics card. With 12 GB of memory and 7 teraflops of peak single-precision performance, it’s on an average 30 percent faster than the previous generation across a range of applications,” explains Greg Estes, VP Enterprise Marketing and GM of Media & Entertainment at NVIDIA. “Coupled with SGO’s highly optimised programming and wide-ranging creative tools, this empowers SGO Mistika to provide incredible performance for colour, visual effects and project finishing.”
The Quadro M6000 is supported by both Mistika and Mamba FX. Mistika seamlessly combines colour grading, conforming, online editing and visual effects to provide the complete post production platform. Mamba FX is SGO’s dedicated compositing software, featuring infinite layer compositing, roto-scoping, optical flow tools, OFX support, paint, tracking and much more. Mamba FX is available for free trial from www.sgo.es/mamba-fx.
The popular GenArts Sapphire 7 visual effects plug-in suite is now fully certified for SGO’s new compositing software, Mamba FX. Just like Mamba FX, Sapphire 7 plug-ins make extensive use of GPU acceleration in order to provide the user with fast feedback and minimal render times. Both also permit very high quality, high dynamic range image processing.
Mamba FX is redefining VFX and already incorporates a variety of realistic and engaging effects and filters, including SGO’s remarkable “optical flow” technology for shot re-timing, de-noising and frame restoration. With the addition of GenArts Sapphire 7, Mamba FX compositors can treat themselves to over 250 new effects and pre-sets to fully unleash their creativity.Gary Oberbrunner, Chief Scientist of GenArts says, “GenArts Sapphire 7 is the most popular and trusted effects suite available, and we are excited to be able to offer its abilities to SGO’s Mamba FX compositors. The latest suite offers an incredible array of effects and Mamba FX now joins a cross-platform list of supported hosts which ensure consistent application of those effects across vendors.”
SGO’s CEO Miguel Angel Doncel confirms, “Mamba FX is the ideal platform for GenArts Sapphire 7 plug-ins as it has an incredibly high quality image processing pipeline and a core set of key features, yet still very affordable. Mamba FX with Sapphire 7 provides an invincible creative combination.”
Mamba FX is fully compatible with SGO’s Mistika, which together provide a powerful complete conform, online, VFX, grading and delivery workflow that stands out from other systems. Mamba FX is available to buy and trial at www.sgo.es/shop and GenArts Sapphire 7 is obtainable at www.genarts.com.
