SGO reveals the future of Stereo 3D & DI at IBC 2011
SGO will also be launching Mistika Insight at IBC - a free educational training module designed for professional users as well as students, enabling users to learn Mistika by gaining hands-on experience within the parameters of their own environment – be that at home, school, on-set, or in a facility.
A key Mistika feature to be demonstrated at the show, among many others, will be SGO's recently unleashed “Equalize”, the industry's fastest and most capable automated stereoscopic image-matching tool, delivering what it promises and proven as critical for creating Stereo 3D excellence.
Combined Element Technica and Mistika demonstrations will also take place for the first time ever at IBC, conveying the integration of Element Technica’s 3D rigs, through bi-directional meta-data capability, which enables live interaction between all functions and accepts almost any image resolution from SD to 5K and beyond, in 2D and Stereo 3D.
Mistika continues to consolidate its position as the leading innovator for high quality perfection for all image dimensions, from 2D, DI and Stereo 3D, with high-profile projects across film and broadcast, making it the first choice for clients who demand the best, and place Mistika at the heart of their creative pipelines.
From on-set to post production delivery, across all genres in film and broadcast, Mistika offers performance-leading toolsets which exceed real-time speed in multi-resolutions and formats. Featuring efficient and advanced workflows, The Mistika range of systems provide an impressively reliable post production solution to overcome the challenges faced in today’s creative market. It is an integral solution that supports SD-HD-2K-4K-5K and Stereo 3D, including real-time native RAW camera format support, and advanced data workflows. Mistika seamlessly integrates timeline-based editing, conforming, infinite layer compositing, colour-grading and image restoration, all in the one highly innovative product range.
Mistika’s stunning creativity enabled SGO's customer, ONSIGHT to be short-listed for an IBC2011 Innovation Award for Stereo 3D post production of BAFTA award-winning documentary “Flying Monsters 3D with David Attenborough” for Sky 3DTV and 3D IMAX. Produced by Atlantic Productions, the programme was selected as one of the four finalists, in the Content Creation category. Mistika's explosive throughput speed also resulted in its significant role in Sky 3D TV's launch, and was the only system capable of delivering to Sky's exacting requirements.
With the team at SGO, Geoff Mills, Director of SGO Global Sales & Operations, has successfully raised world-wide awareness of Mistika's ground-breaking real-time DI and Stereoscopic 3D capabilities and workflow to such a level that Mistika has deservedly become a system of choice. Geoff states: “The fact that SGO Mistika has received recognition by being nominated for the prestigious IBC2011 Innovation Awards as Technology Partner, reinforces its significance in the industry. It is clearly a beneficial and award-winning investment for creative and ambitious companies that seek technology that stimulates growth and future proofs their security. The SGO technology combined with its team, are supporting customers to reap the rewards of their enterprising and aspiring work by bringing efficiency, high quality and advanced toolsets for DI, 2D and Stereo 3D all in one very reliable solution.”
SGO's new Mistika Product Application Specialist, Sam Sheppard can be seen in action in the main demonstration area at the SGO stand at IBC this year for the very first time, where exciting Mistika presentations will take place every hour.
