SGO has integrated AJA‘s Kona 5 audio and video I/O cards into its full finishing and workflow solution Mistika Ultima, providing simplified and optimized 8K production for broadcast clients.
The new Mistika Ultima 8K System provides a realtime finishing workflow for 8K full UHD at 60p, even with uncompressed formats. It is comprised of an AJA Kona 5 card with 12G-SDI I/O connectivity, Mistika Ultima software, an HP Z8 workstation, a high-performance SGO storage solution, and other industry-standard hardware.
Kona 5 is a high-performance eight-lane PCIe 3.0 capture and output card featuring 12G-SDI I/O and HDMI 2.0 output. For OEM partners, the card is supported on AJA’s SDK for Mac OS, Windows and Linux, offering advanced features such as 8K and multi-channel 4K. Kona 5 is also compatible with creative tools such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro X and Avid Media Composer, via AJA’s proven Mac OS and Windows drivers and application plug-ins. Kona 5 enables simultaneous capture with signal passthrough when using 12G-SDI, and offers HDMI 2.0 output, as well as deep-color and multi-format HDR support.
SGO has certified ATTO’s 12Gb ExpressSAS host bus adapters (HBAs) for use with its high-end post system, the Mistika Ultima. This new addition can help post teams to better manage large data transfers and offer support for realtime editing of uncompressed 4K video.
The latest addition to the ATTO ExpressSAS family, the 12Gb SAS/SATA HBA provides users with fast storage connectivity while allowing scalability for next-gen platforms and infrastructures. Optimized for extremely low latency and high-bandwidth data transfer, ExpressSAS HBAs offer a wide variety of port configurations, RAID-0, -1, and -1e.
“Projects that our customers are working on are becoming incredibly data heavy and the integration of ATTO products into a Mistika solution will help smooth and speed up data transfers, shortening production times,” said Miguel Angel Doncel, CEO of SGO.
