LAS VEGAS — SGO is showing Version 6 of its Mistika (www.sgomistika.com) post production system at this year’s NAB Show. Demonstrations focus on the system’s stereo 3D capabilities, and the company also has a presence at the Red, Element Technica and Nvidia booths.
Mistika 6 offers native support of Red’s Epic and Arri’s Alexa cameras. Its stereo 3D capabilities include support for interlaced and progressive video, making it suitable for cinema and television work.
A new DCP output module enables Mistika users to create digital cinema packages. This saves hours of transcoding time. The company is also showing a new on-set tool in its Mistika Live, which allows SGO’s stereoscopic and color correction tools be taken on set for previsualization and preliminary post work. Mistika Live can apply its processes to dual HD live streams.
Special guests appearing at the SGO booth throughout the course of the show include representatives from BskyB, who will talk about 3D for television (11am & 3pm Mon – Weds), and On Sight COO Andrew Shelley, who will reflect on his experience post producing Flying Monsters 3D with David Attenborough. Mistika’s stereo 3D tools were used to help bring animated prehistoric creatures back to life on television and IMAX screens.
