SGO will exhibit the latest additions to its range of extremely powerful Mistika post production systems and Mamba FX compositing software at the 2014 NAB Show.

Mistika - Powerfully Different
Designed to be different, SGO unveils its new Mistika range based on accelerated optimum performance levels, namely Mistika Post, Mistika Optima and Mistika Ultima in version 8.0
. Radically crossing the boundaries between grading, compositing and editing for ultimate creative freedom in real time, Mistika seamlessly merges all post disciplines for broadcast and film. All projects, irrespective of size, can be completed on any Mistika system, with the fastest being Mistika Ultima, handling HFR capabilities, 4K and beyond, in real time. New features include a spatial keyer
with the ability to allow grading selections or keying mattes to be derived from CGI object meta data. Other new key features in version 8.0 include an all-new node-based compositing interface, support for Canon's MRF, Sony's XAVC, enhanced AAF support, ProRes 4:4:4 file formats, a re-branding output render module and Dolby Atmos DCP generation. SGO will also showcase Mistika on other booths at NAB, with updated information soon to be made available on the SGO website.
Mistika Air - Post for Broadcasters
Mistika Air is a specific version of Mistika especially tailored for broadcasters of HD, Ultra HD and beyond. Mistika Air Ultra
allows for even greater speed and throughput in a crowded multi-platform environment that caters for the delivery of high resolution programmes, which are swiftly becoming the standard. Mistika provides a viable and stress-tested solution which promotes seamless integration and high-end production tools for HD, Ultra HD and 8K productions. Mistika also boasts 4K HFR modes at 59p and 60p speeds for the UHD market, supported through the QuadSDI standard.
Mamba FX - Evolution Redefined
Mamba FX is SGO's affordable and very powerful, open, node-based compositor introduced at NAB for the first time since its initial launch at IBC2013. It displays an intuitive node-based graphic interface delivering an integral visual effects suite with unlimited compositing layers and effects. Mamba FX can also be extended with OFX plug-ins or additional options from SGO. These options include DCP creation and access to SGO's unbeatable stereo correction tools.
