SGO’s Japanese Reseller Partner KYOSHIN Communications showcases the performance-leading Mistika colour-finishing post production system again at this year’s InterBEE in Tokyo.
On KYOSHIN’s Booth (4201, Hall 4), two state-of-the-art Mistika systems are on display to demonstrate stunning HDR 4K 60P content on Canon and SONY monitors. SKY Perfect TV’s HDR test broadcasting programme can also be seen for the first time on the eye-catching 24-inch 4K Canon monitor with a Hybrid Log Gamma.
With a secure foothold in the Japanese market, SGO already has important customers in Japan who rely on its innovative Mistika technology, one of them being Tokyo Sound Production (TSP), who have already started to provide HDR 4K / 8K delivery services.
Most of the HDR content featured on KYOSHIN’s booth is courtesy of TSP, which recently invested in a Mistika system to boost their broadcast services. SGO’s Product Application Specialist Nicholas Recagno is presenting informative HDR grading demos and Japanese Product Specialist Shinpei Takoshima will outline the efficient and flexible offline-to-online post production process using Mistika.
Also new this InterBEE: – KYOSHIN and SGO have partnered with Canon to display its pioneering advancements in HDR technology. A Mistika system is on Canon’s Booth 6123 in Hall 6 with Product Application Specialist – SGO Korea, Jihyung Kang, at the controls to show how it plays an integral part of an end-to-end HDR-4K colour-process workflow.

It is also resolution, colour-space and frame-rate independent featuring real-time performance, even at 4K / 8K 60P and above. Mistika can post produce any project, including 4K and 8K, whether it is for broadcast, cinema or commercials, pretty fast and all in real-time. Latest developments on show in Mistika include leading colour grading features to make the most out of HDR images, linked to the stylish Mistika Precision finishing control surface.

KYOSHIN’s President, Shigeru Ojima, states, “InterBEE is an ideal platform to promote Mistika’s powerful capabilities. Many post facilities in Japan are looking to SGO’s Mistika to support their current and upcoming projects to provide consistency with higher-resolution formats being adopted for production, broadcast and display technology. In addition, with the Japanese government encouraging 4K and 8K investments in the domestic retail sector in time for the future Olympic Games, we are in a great position to be able to confidently equip our customers to meet their clientèle’s expectations with Mistika’s unprecedented 4K abilities.”
SGO Group’s Director of Global Sales and Operations Geoff Mills, adds, “KYOSHIN are doing an incredible job at raising awareness of Mistika in the Japanese market, ensuring that customers are future-ready, and especially as excitement grows as we head towards the 2020 Tokyo Olympic year.
