Second Mistika Systems Ordered For BTV Post

Cutting edge facility BTV Post has purchased an additional Mistika post production system, expanding its 2D and stereo 3D capabilities.
Providing a full range of post production services, the facility has set themselves apart, by embracing stereoscopic 3D, thus ensuring the continued growth of the company.
The investment will further enable BTV Post to meet increasing demand for high-end cinema grading and a total online solution for both 2D and 3D.
BTV Post is working on a variety of projects for UK broadcasters and producers including Sky 3D and has had an enormously successful year by investing in the equipment and knowledge required, to make compelling and cost effective stereoscopic 3D content.
Highly experienced in filming and post producing stereoscopic content, BTV Post provides key services in strategic locations in London's Soho and Brighton. Mistika already plays an integral role in securing 3D post production projects, along with skilled technicians, editors and stenographers.
BTV Post has recently won a post production contract for three high-profile series being produced for 3Net (Sony/IMAX/Discovery) which include High Octane, an action sports series; Ultimate Factories, an insider's look into the awe-inspiring factories of the world's greatest manufacturers; and Feeding Time, a natural history series on animal behaviour. BTV Post first entered into stereo 3D two years ago with a project to record the world famous ballet, Swan Lake at the Royal Opera House in London.
Other current projects include post production on Shakespeare's Globe including four latest recordings (Merry Wives of Windsor, Henry IV Part I, Henry IV Part 2 and Henry VIII) for digital cinema release and Wonders 3D, a four-part series for Electric Sky.
BTV Post's Technical Director, Jon Lee, stated: "This is a very exciting time for us and we made the decision to buy a second Mistika system in order to service the growing volume of work for our post facility, which is driven by our clients for deliveries to Sky 3D and 3Net in the US. We have total confidence in Mistika to deliver high quality work within broadcast budgets and time-frames."
Geoff Mills, Director of SGO Global Sales & Operations, added: "The very fact that BTV Post is yet another facility adding additional SGO systems, clearly shows that Mistika is the system of choice for stereo 3D production. Our close relationship with BTV Post has leveraged our respective strengths to enhance and grow Mistika's presence in the stereoscopic 3D market."
