SGO has announced it has partnered with AJA Video Systems to make its subscription-based full-finishing software solution Mistika Boutique compatible with AJA’s T-TAP, the portable Thunderbolt-powered I/O device, in the latest Mistika 10 release. The company simultaneously announced the launch of a special promotion offering a free 90-day trial of Mistika Boutique with new AJA T-TAP, KONA 1, KONA 4, Io 4K and Io 4K Plus purchases.
Mistika Boutique is a subscription-based full finishing software for Windows and macOS, designed to run on industry-standard, off-the-shelf hardware. It features the complete spectrum of professional finishing tools, from conform to VFX, color grading, Stereo 3D, VR and more, with pricing ranging from €99 ($112) to €299 (USD$338) per month. When combined with AJA T-TAP, an affordable, compact video and audio output device that allows professionals to monitor high-quality 10-bit HD, SD, HDR and 2K video with embedded audio output from any compatible Mac or PC, Mistika Boutique provides users with a new cost-effective option for feeding Mac and PC outputs to preferred displays for an enhanced finishing experience.
“Mistika Boutique was created for any type of post-production facility, including smaller studios or even freelance artists who want to take full advantage of the capabilities that our Mistika Technology software provides, with the added flexibility to work with their preferred hardware. T-TAP is an intuitive and extremely cost-efficient device, making it a perfect complement for Mistika Boutique users finishing 2D, 3D and even VR content on a laptop or computer,” said Geoff Mills, Managing Director at SGO. “Having worked with AJA previously to integrate KONA and Corvid cards into our high-end, turnkey Mistika Ultima finishing systems, delivering Mistika Boutique support for T-TAP was a natural progression. Working with AJA is always a pleasure, and we trust that our customers are in very good hands with a high-quality product and support they can depend on.”
“In recent months, the importance of strong remote post production capabilities has become paramount, and our partnership with SGO aims to make mobile finishing that much simpler, providing an affordable way to get your Mistika Boutique output from your laptop or computer to a range of supported 3G-SDI and HDMI displays,” added Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems. “Collaboration with their team has been fantastic, and we look forward to continuing our work together.”
A free 90-day trial of Mistika Boutique is now available to new AJA T-TAP, KONA 1, KONA 4, Io 4K and Io 4K Plus customers through 30 September 2020. An SGO redemption coupon can be found in the box of new sales of these products.
