On Sight purchases second SGO Mistika 4K system for Stereo 3D and 2D projects

On Sight is delighted to have invested in Mistika and the ground breaking technology it brings to our stereo 3D operation

In a move to continue the expansion of its post production services and to provide clients with on‐going advanced and efficient 2D and stereoscopic 3D productivity, London‐based On Sight, has invested in an additional SGO Mistika, with 64TB SAN, and upgraded both systems to 4K playback. With the reputation as one of the most powerful 2D and stereo 3D post production tools in the market, Mistika already plays an integral role in supporting On Sight's existing current project work‐flow and in attracting new project work to the company. Mistika is the system of choice for all of On Sight's finishing work which includes 2D and stereo 3D commercials, corporate films, documentaries and feature films.

On Sight, one of the UK's major stereo 3D pioneers, has become associated with expert 3D production and 3D post services. The company's stereo 3D experience ranges from Axis Films' involvement in the first ever live 3D broadcast to their HD Labs’ SGO Mistika 3D finishing system. With 3D rapidly gaining momentum it is apparent that On Sight is the company to turn to for advice, products and solutions for the latest sought after format. SGO and Mistika will help to support On Sight in meeting the growing and complex demands that stereo 3D productions involve.

Simon Craddock, CEO of On Sight, states: “On Sight is delighted to have invested further in Mistika and the ground breaking technology it brings to our stereo 3D operation. With Axis Films, On Sight’s camera rental division, expanding its stereo 3D operation recently, the additional Mistika will allow us to provide the best stereo 3D workflow solution in the UK.”

"The close relationship between our two companies means that we will continue to meet the evolving needs of stereo 3D throughout the entire production process and maintain Mistika's position as the best system in the market.“ adds Geoff Mills, Director of SGO Global Sales & Operations.


On Sight's second Mistika system, which has already been installed at the Berners Street location, will not just be perceived as an advanced stereo 3D tool, but also as a complete post production system being made up of highly developed 2D tools which include editing, conforming, image restoration, compositing, colour grading, multi mastering and DCP for both 3D and 2D. Mistika will form the central core of the work‐flow process during each post project, further demonstrating how having a Mistika, enhances a quality driven business and provides first‐rate service, based on its unrivalled speed, highly developed functionality, openness, flexibility and ability to integrate seamlessly with other systems.

On Sight has recently worked on an impressive number of high profile stereo 3D projects using Mistika for music, commercial and feature clients, which includes a breath‐taking factual 3D and CGI documentary titled Flying Monsters 3D with David Attenborough for Sky's 3D Channel produced by Atlantic Productions and a stunning project for The Prince's Trust Rock Gala in 3D produced by Nineteen Fifteen/3DD Productions featuring Eric Clapton, Tom Jones and many other music legends.
