SGO relies on ATTO Technology, Inc., the storage and network connectivity solutions provider to bring even greater performance standards to Mistika workflow solutions for high-end film and broadcast projects. Mistika’s breath-taking speed is indicative of how demanding it is on bandwidth to its storage devices and ATTO Celerity Fibre Channel host bus adapters (HBAs) provide that vital connection. With ATTO Technology’s experience in engineering advanced technology into real-world product solutions, they provide SGO with a unique competitive advantage.
SGO’s Technical Director Javier Moreno states “The higher the performance, the higher the bandwidth and therefore the harder these cards need to work to achieve and produce the required results. ATTO’s technology plays a significant role in helping SGO to deliver high-end workflows and creative solutions stretching the boundaries of film and broadcast productions worldwide.”
CEO of SGO, Miguel Angel Doncel confirms “We are happy to certify ATTO Fibre Channel HBAs support our current Mistika products. Our customers demand the highest performance in the industry, and ATTO is a reliable partner to achieve that challenging goal.”
As the cornerstone of many internationally acclaimed facilities, film studios and broadcasters, Mistika provides creative tools for 2D and highly-developed stereoscopic 3D productions, boasting remarkable speed and real-time visual effects, colour grading, editing, compositing, graphics and multi-format mastering and much more. With Mistika operating from non-proprietary hardware with an open file structure, including widespread codec-support, it enables easy integration and compatibility with other systems.
Mistika is used in mission-critical situations within Broadcasting, where having reliable cards is essential.
