News: SGO to Showcase Mistika 8.7 Post-Production Capabilities at 2016 NAB Show Shanghai
Exclusive demonstrations available onsite on VR, HDR, Color grading and 4K capabilities at 2016 NAB Show Shanghai – Booth N1G27 Hall N1
(Shanghai, China--December 6, 2016) SGO, the high-end post-production software and systems developer will showcase the new Mistika 8.7 post-production digital intermediate (DI) workflow suite at the upcoming 2016 NAB Show Shanghai, for the first time. Located on Booth# N1G27 in Hall N1 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre in Shanghai, China the show runs from December 7-9, 2016.
SGO will demonstrate a substantial number of new post-production tools to service the most demanding high-end finishing projects created for Ultra High Definition (UHD), High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Virtual Reality (VR).
SGO will show Mistika’s 4K capabilities, offering in-depth demonstrations throughout the conference to show attendees its practical post-production workflows and how the system offers an interactive solution which operators can use at all levels, including real-time playback and output in 4K. Mistika 8.7 includes the new Immersive Reality toolsets that integrates Mistika’s existing Stereo 3D features to distort and dynamically adapt images to the spherical VR space allowing for real-time manipulation and playback of VFX, text and color grading. The latest version of Mistika also offers VR streaming capabilities directly to tablets, phones and other network-enabled devices.
Benefitting from a new editorial auto-conform interface, Mistika now provides users with smart filters and matching tools enabling them to import and link an ever growing variety of client provided AAF, EDL, and XML timelines to the intended original media. The new tools of version 8.7 make it is easier for clients to auto-conform against untouched source footage as well as re-auto-conform against already worked-on media.
SGO will also demonstrate how Mistika 8.7 offers several color selection keyers, such as the 3D keyer, RGB keyer, improved HSL keyer, unique 4th ball highlight recovery tool, HDR mode, and expanded HDR range sliders. These enable users to work well outside of the standard 0 - 100% video range.
“Mistika has always been a unique post-production solution that is fast becoming the tool of choice for demanding UHD/HDR productions,” said Miguel Angel Doncel, CEO, SGO. “With version 8.7, and recognition of Mistika’s powerful toolset by being awarded the 2016 HPA Engineering Excellence Award, every operator and user of Mistika is able to work the way they want to through its flexibility and new features.
Please Note: Mistika specialist, David Rivero, will provide demos daily on the show floor. Demos can be pre-booked by contacting Mr. Wimin Zhao at +86.139.1685.4132.
