SGO’s color grading and finishing platform Mistika will support Dolby Vision technology in its next available version, enabling the display of high dynamic range (HDR) images with wider color gamut capabilities.
SGO, working in close collaboration with Dolby, intends to make the Dolby Vision workflow capabilities available in Mistika from V.8.2, which was previewed at NAB and is due for release shortly after IBC 2014.
Dolby Vision allows creative teams to use the full gamut of colors, peak brightness and local contrast, knowing that those will be reproduced on televisions that feature Dolby Vision.
Said Roland Vlaicu, Senior Director, Broadcast Imaging, Dolby, “Films and TV shows will look more like the real world, and viewers will notice details that might have previously gone unseen.”
“All the necessary underlying requirements are already in place, guaranteeing our customers a future-proof return in their investment,” said SGO’s Director of Global Sales and Operations Geoff Mills. “Dolby Vision delivers vivid imagery, and we’re absolutely thrilled to be one of the first in our industry to make this technology a reality.”
