London, UK – SGO has announced that its powerful flagship colour grading and finishing platform, Mistika, now supports Dolby Vision technology, enabling the display of high dynamic range (HDR) images with wider colour gamut capabilities. SGO, working in close collaboration with Dolby, will look to make the Dolby Vision workflow capabilities available in Mistika from version 8.2, which was previewed at NAB and is due for release shortly after IBC 2014.
Dolby Vision helps content creators and television manufacturers deliver true-to-life brightness, colours and contrast by augmenting the fidelity of Ultra HD (UHD) and HD video signals for over-the-top (OTT) online streaming, broadcast and gaming applications.
Mistika has inherently supported full HDR workflows for some time now, and is therefore ideally positioned to enable its users to take full advantage of this technological step-change.
