17 Jul SGO wins Hollywood Professional Association Engineering Excellence Award For The Second Year Running
SGO, the high end post production software and systems developer, is proud to announce it has been awarded the 2017 HPA Engineering Excellence Award for its Mistika VR, the affordable VR focused solution with real-time stitching capabilities using Mistika Optical Flow Technology. The Engineering Excellence Awards recognises companies and individuals that provide outstanding services to the professional media content industry. The award will be presented to SGO on November 16, 2017 at the 12th annual HPA Awards gala at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, CA.
By taking the best of its turnkey offering and previous HPA Award winning ‘Mistika Ultima’, SGO has developed advanced workflow applications aimed at specific tasks. The new VR solution uses Mistika Optical Flow Technology that takes camera position information and sequences then stitches the images together using extensive and intelligent pre-sets. Its unique stitching algorithms take away the many challenges facing post-production teams to allow for the highest image quality.
“We’re overwhelmed to have won the HPA Engineering Excellence Award for the second year running for one of our newly developed products,” comments Geoff Mills, Managing Director. “SGO is dedicated to creating solutions that enable the industry to adopt a much more flexible workflow and we believe Mistika VR does just that. This product is just the start of a SGO’s movement to drive more natively integrated workflows within production houses. Moving forward, there will be more solutions coming from the Mistika Ultima ‘hero suite’ that can be adapted to specific projects.”
SGO will be showcasing the award winning Mistiska VR alongside the Mistika Ultima and the new educational and training solution, Mistika Insight at IBC2017 on Booth 6.A11 at the RAI in Amsterdam from the 14-18 September 2017.
