Legend3D Continues to Set the Pace with SGO Technology
Legend3D's Director of I.T. Anthony Lopez, says "We looked at Mistika a while ago and were immediately impressed, and after researching all competitive products, we came to the conclusion that SGO is refreshingly different and a company we can work with, not only because of their passionate commitment to the S3D industry, but also for our mutually beneficial development opportunities." He expands, "As we continue to grow, so do our systems and technology. Mistika is a trustworthy system with dependable 4K S3D real-time playback and visual effects capabilities that can handle everything from editorial, depth grading, and they are open and accessible to partner on development projects. We plan on using Mistika as a client facing platform to create realtime, on-the-fly adjustments to suit our clients creative needs."
"Legend3D's constantly evolving tools and workflow, combined with Mistika's innovation, manages to liberate precious man hours into productive creativity. We foresee Mistika playing a huge role here and its time-saving strengths make it a wise investment." explains Jared Sandrew, Legend3D's Creative Director. "We have a great deal of respect for SGO's development team with their professionalism and flexibility to tailor their technologies around our specific needs. Their personalized service has won us over as well as Mistika's compelling attributes that cleverly merge S3D toolsets, grading, compositing and finishing all in one powerful system, providing us with ultimate control, instilling even greater confidence in our work from our clients. We are very enthusiastic about this next chapter and we look forward to ongoing development with SGO as we work on new feature films using Mistika such as Jupiter Ascending and many more."
Geoff Mills, Director of SGO's Global Sales and Operations adds, "It's incredibly rewarding to see Legend3D set the pace with SGO's technology in their pipeline. With Mistika as an indispensable resource, we are immensely proud to contribute to their successful productivity and to play a crucial part in their new development phase. We look forward to a profound relationship with them for many years to come."
SGO's official U.S. Reseller Partner, Colin Ritchie at AArmadillo confirms, "Legend3D is the perfect client for SGO and the Mistika, they share a desire to deliver the best that 3D can offer. The plan is to integrate Mistika into the unique Legend 3D pipeline with custom tools and configurations. This is an exciting time for both companies as we approach 4K, HFR and HDR imaging, it's good to know that Mistika will be a big part of what Legend 3D delivers next."
