ONSIGHT Invests in Fourth SGO Mistika System
Reputed for using innovative technology such as Mistika, Onsight's on-going success in attracting DI and Stereo 3D projects has vastly increased. Onsight now offers clients a suite of SGO products, including 4 Mistika systems operating on shared storage, the Mistika on-set production tool and an SGO SAN.
With an understanding of the entire production process, Onsight provides a unique contribution to programme-makers, by offering advice at every stage from shoot to post. CEO of Onsight , Simon Craddock states: “It is imperative that our projects are managed as efficiently as possible in post, and Mistika plays a vital role in this process. Mistika continues to help us meet increasing and complex requirements that DI and Stereo 3D productions involve, with stunning creative results. Enhancing our capabilities with a fourth Mistika system was an obvious move for us. Mistika's impressive toolset also makes it the most desirable and interactive solution in the industry and it is very exciting to be utilising the most advanced technology available.”
Onsight's COO, Andrew Shelley, adds: “Having another Mistika on board, further enhances our capacity to deliver time-sensitive and high quality material. The Mistika platform gives us incredible flexibility, and the ability to offer efficient workflows to our clients.”
Geoff Mills, Director of SGO Global Sales & Operations, concludes: “Mistika already plays an integral role in the entire DI and Stereo 3D production pipeline at Onsight and we are proud to support them. Opting for an additional Mistika system, was a logical progression to fortify Onsight's existing collaborative workflows, as exciting projects continue to flow in. Mistika's phenomenal power in DI and Stereo 3D has opened opportunities for film-makers to create exciting content now and in the future.”
SGO Mistika, the most sought-after DI and stereoscopic 3D toolset in the industry, was recently used at Onsight on the award winning Flying Monsters 3D with David Attenborough. The system was used for both 2D and stereo 3D post production, as well as the creation of TV, theatrical and IMAX deliverables . Due to the enormous scale of this film, Onsight networked two Mistika systems together, in order to improve efficiency where the online workload could be shared in real-time. The project illustrates how networking Mistika systems enables the VFX & Stereo 3D Artists to work simultaneously, consequently accelerating the process significantly. Onsight has been nominated for an IBC2011 Innovation Award with SGO Mistika as Technology Partner.
Onsight has recently provided production and post production services to a host of exciting projects. This includes True Blood – Peter Gabriel Live in London (3D) for Eagle Rock, the Bachelor King 3D for Atlantic Productions and A Day in the Life of an Audi Driver for Passion Pictures.
SGO will be showcasing the Mistika post production system this year at IBC 2011, Stand 6.A11
