SGO announces Mistika ability to generate direct DCP output for DCI screening (17/9/2010)
In yet another exciting development to be unveiled at IBC 2010, SGO announces that Mistika has added support for direct export to a Digital Cinema Package (DCP). This new direct export capability allows the rapid creation of digital cinema compliant files ready for viewing and testing in a digital cinema environment. Currently, the DCP process is a time consuming one, requiring the post production finishing tool to export a common file format, such as a TIFF 16 (DCM format), to an external drive, ready to be imported into a DCP conversion facility. By being able to directly create DCP files at high speed, Mistika can massively reduce the time it takes to create a digital "check print" and in many cases, Mistika can create the DCP file faster than copying TIFF 16 files to a hard drive.
With the global expansion in take up of Digital Cinema for theatre screenings, the need for fast checking of any DCP output has become of major concern. Mistika’s new ability to directly produce a DCP deliverable assists in all aspects of the delivery chain, means that any challenges with the project, can be found and assessed well in advance of the final output. The final output can then be generated directly from the on-line material, without the need for yet more data transfers with the additional potential for error that they can present.
Geoff Mills, Director of Sales and Operations at SGO UK asserts: “This is a very exciting addition to Mistika for our customers. The whole workflow can now be maintained in-house, and can enable our customers to confidently guarantee all the final deliverable requirements to their clients.”
The Mistika post production system is a flexible high-end post production and live on set system capable of SD, HD, 2K, 4K, and stereoscopic 3D with real-time ARRI, Red camera and other native data workflows. It seamlessly integrates timeline-based editing, conforming, infinite-layer compositing, colour grading and image restoration all in one complete system with various toolsets working together in the timeline.
