Case Studies


SGO’s globally-acclaimed post production Hero Suite Mistika Ultima has achieved market notoriety for providing customized technology and workflows for many industry leaders in the whole world. Built on years of research, development and production experience, Mistika Technology empowers users with new levels of creative power, performance, and efficiency in HDR, UHD/4K, 8K, S3D, and VR workflows.

Mistika Ultima offers an extensive spectrum of flexible and extremely powerful online features and toolsets, essential for finishing — including color grading, compositing, editing, VFX, S3D, HDR and more. Mistika Ultima’s unrivaled performance enables real-time interactivity up to 8K at 60p, with the result of any creative decision seen instantly at the highest quality.

When powered by Xinnor, Mistika Ultima delivers a high-end turn-key solution well-suited for post-production needs. Integrated storage technologies match Mistika Ultima’s advanced toolset and capabilities and ensure stable performance for any content creation process.

Data Storage for Cutting-Edge Media Solution

Xinnor’s solution for Mistika is a powerful software base for storage systems to endure in an environment of high load processes and demanding applications. It was especially designed for post-production and TV broadcast, where it proved outstanding results in terms of performance and data availability on common server hardware.

Depending on the Mistika Ultima configuration, SGO+Xinnor solution can be incorporated as an integrated storage system component. It enables low latency, high throughput and increased speed for even the most demanding post-production workflows with collaboration between multiple workstations.

High-Performance Storage Engine

Based on proprietary algorithms and erasure coding methods, software allows maximum speed of applications and data integrity. In order to identify process-critical applications and assign them maximum priority software employs machine learning.

Proprietary RAID calculations technology of Xinnor’s software provide sustainable storage performance in case of disk failure or recovery mode. It helps to improve total storage performance by reducing latency and increasing throughput for read/write requests.

Joint Solution advantages

Mistika Ultima is completely scalable, truly interactive, fully real-time and totally resolution independent solution, enabling highly efficient post production workflows. When powered by Xinnor, it provides a number of benefits for content creators and post-production facilities.

Most storage systems are fast in the server side but they fail to deliver the same speed to the other hosts. The software integration between Mistika Ultima and Xinnor solution does not only get more bandwidth from the same hardware, but this bandwidth also goes exactly where you need it and when you need it.

For example, we have essentially ‘hard wired’ Xinnor’s features to Mistika Play / Stop functions to make sure that all bandwidth valves in the entire infrastructure are instantly opened or closed on demand.
