It has been an active year for Pre-Stack Pro. In April we released version 5.4, with major new features including manual horizon picking, CRAVA inversion, and phase decomposition.

We will soon roll out Pre-Stack Pro 5.6 – the fourth and final installment of the current Foundation IV consortium project. Adaptive horizon gridding and many other new features will be showcased during the interactive sessions at this event. We will also share our product vision and roadmap for delivering new functionality, and invite unfiltered feedback from current customers. Overall, the event will give you a full update of Pre- Stack Pro in 2019, past, present and future.


Hands-on software training sessions are a highlight of every Gathering, and this year is no exception. If you are new user, we’ll have tutorials to get you up and running in an afternoon. We also plan “new feature” tutorials for more experienced users. Our geophysicists and software developers will be on hand with expert tips, and to answer specific question about the software. Pre-Stack Pro will be running in our Amazon Web Services environment, so everyone will have access to a machine.


We’ve put together a great lineup of guest speakers to complement the practical, hands-on sessions. Learn the theory behind some of our newer technologies. Clients, partners, and Sharp Reflections staff will cover topics such as elastic and litho-fluid seismic inversion, AVO quality assurance, and innovative processing workflows.  Technology is evolving faster than ever; make sure you’re prepared for what’s coming next.

If you have a case study you would like to share, please get in touch – we’d love to see it.


With keynote presentations, breakout sessions, and case studies, you’ll be sure to leverage the knowledge of other users. Meet people who share your passion for leading-edge seismic data analysis. This is an invaluable opportunity to exchange views and challenges, and hear how others are putting standards into practice. Get inspired, and inspire others.


Berlin is the City of Freedom, with vibrant culture, fabulous food, and great nightlife. It’s the perfect location to work hard, then unwind with colleagues. As Sharp Reflections celebrates its 10th anniversary, we’d like to say a big “thank you” to everyone who has played a part, and toast success.
