London-based stereoscopic 3D production facility ONSIGHT has upgraded its SGO software across its entire workflow. The company offers four Mistika systems operating on shared storage, along with the Mistika on-set production tool and an SGO SAN, powered by HPZ820 platforms. The upgraded systems will include Mistika 7.2 software which extends the system’s stereo 3D tools, and adds features that will increase performance and productivity.
“We have been users of Mistika for a long time,” said Simon Craddock, CEO of ONSIGHT. “It continues to help us meet increasing and complex requirements in DI and stereo 3D productions with impressive and importantly, real-time results. Updating our Mistika facilities was vital for the benefit of our creative and technical teams, in order to keep delivering high quality and time sensitive material.”
Mistika works with all digital cameras in their native formats and integrates easily with other postproduction stages. Mistika systems have served as ONSIGHT’s primary post suites on projects including documentary films, television programming, commercials, stereo 3D and giant screen high frame rate projects.
The facility has relied on SGO’s Mistika system for its grading, conforming, stereo 3D work and visual effects for years. ONSIGHT won the IBC 2011 Innovation Award for its stereoscopic 3D work on Atlantic Productions and Sky 3D TV‘s film, Flying Monsters with David Attenborough.
