SGO has appointed root6 as an official reseller for its Mistika post production systems and workflow solutions, including the recently introduced Mamba FX compositing software. root6 will work alongside the SGO team covering the UK and Ireland for both sales and support services.

Director of root6 Rupert Watson says, “We primarily founded root6 to introduce Microsoft Softimage | DS to UK post production so we are more than familiar with the requirements of bringing revolutionary kit to the attention of our friends in high-end post. Mistika is a beautiful thing. It has power and agility and is like no other system on the market. Its enormous speed and elegance crush the most demanding finishing tasks and we look forward to introducing the technology to our clients as they head for the sunlit uplands of 4K (UHD) post production.”

SGO’s Director of Global Sales & Operations Geoff Mills states, “We met with root6 at the end of last year where they highlighted increasing customer interest in Mistika and Mamba FX. Consequently, and also due to SGO’s ongoing expansion, we have agreed to form a reseller partnership which will bring valuable expertise and additional resources to support our growing customer base, while at the same time, maintaining SGO’s key values of personalised service. The decision to combine efforts with root6, a well-respected high-profile organisation, further compliments our current activity and position in the region.”
