Tokyo Sound Production, Japan, recently upgraded its capabilities with an SGO Mistika post-production system.
TSP used the Mistika on footage for a Channel 4K program, which aired on CS Digital Broadcasting. Mistika operator Shigeyuki Koeda worked on the project at TSP and says, “It is always great to hear positive feedback from our clients about how stable the playback of contents in 4K 60P is with Mistika. After receiving this uncompressed one hour project, I just put the content on the Mistika timeline and made the project play-out. It doesn’t require much time, and with Mistika there is no stress in front of clients.”
The Japanese government is encouraging 4K and 8K investments in the domestic retail sector in time for the upcoming Olympic Games.
Yutaka Hamada, department director at TSP says, “SGO Mistika's technology is truly impressive. There is virtually nothing Mistika cannot do. It comfortably post produces any project, including 4K and 8K, whether it is for broadcast, cinema or commercials, pretty fast and all in real-time. Its creative features, advanced workflows and resolution-independence have won us over, and it's taken centre stage here, making us feel secure in the knowledge that we have the world's most innovative system backing us. As the excitement grows for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic year, we feel prepared and future-ready with Mistika at our side.”
“With higher-resolution formats rapidly gaining a foothold in Japan for production, TV programs and displays, many post facilities in Japan are looking to SGO's Mistika to support their current and upcoming projects and provide stability in a fast-paced changing industry. I am delighted that the discerning team at TSP have made this exciting step by putting their trust in SGO technology which is playing a fundamental role in their future strategy," says Geoff Mills, director of global sales and operations, SGO Group.
