(London, United Kingdom--April 30, 2014) The Precision Grading Panel for SGO Mistika has proven to be a big hit at the National Association of Broadcaster's Convention (NAB) in Las Vegas this April. Within hours of the show opening, pioneering London facilities company ONSIGHT placed an order for two Precision Panels to help drive their state-of-the-art Mistika grading and finishing suites in 4K, 3D and HD. They will be installed at the company’s stunning new WC2 premises by St Martins Lane, which also includes 4K projection.
