SGO Partners with S3D Technologies

SGO, who will be showcasing the Mistika Post Production System at NAB this year and launching Version 5.0, is delighted to announce that their partner S3D Technologies will also have a presence on SGO’s booth. S3D Technologies focuses on the research and development of technology for stereoscopic 3D film production.

S3D Beam Splitter Rig
S3D Technologies will be presenting the S3D Beam Splitter Rig at the show, revealing high-end quality, functionality and design, which significantly facilitates the shooting of live stereoscopic 3D images. The new rig offers the perfect balance between stability, rigidity and weight. It is suitable for film and digital cameras with lenses of up to 114 mm diameter and a 16 mm focal length.

It possesses a state-of-the-art camera release system, which allows the operator to remove and fix cameras efficiently and fast. In addition, the operating temperatures of its electronic components range from -40ºC to 80ºC (-40ºF to 176ºF) which makes filming in a variety of locations and climates a practical possibility.

S3D Calculator
S3D Technologies is also introducing the S3D Calculator at NAB this year, which is an essential tool when shooting stereo 3D as the software enables the exact configurations of stereoscopic parameters to be sourced, based on the conditions of the set and its desired effects.

S3D Technologies is looking ahead with the development of S3D Plug-ins and the S3D Converter. The S3D Plug-ins, will be an indispensable tool to contribute to future stereo 3D projects as they also integrate the S3D Calculator’s features, allowing the user the direct import and export from production set-up parameters. S3D Converter converts footage from 2D to 3D effortlessly and will be released later in 2010.

SGO will be unveiling Mistika Version 5.0 at NAB, revealing one of the most significant software releases to date, with a brand new interface for maximum user acceptability as well as a set of stunning new stereoscopic 3D and 2D tools.
