The new Sony Venice 2 is now approved by Netflix for all productions, the first 8K camera from the firm to get this accolade.
Netflix requests that 90% of the total runtime of any final program should be captured on an approved camera, although it can be less for non-fiction content. For example, nature or other documentaries may need specialised cameras. However, Netflix asks for test footage to be shot with unapproved cameras to ensure compatibility.
Netflix accepts content in Ultra HD and Full HD, depending on the type of content, and may request other resolutions.
As well as cameras, the firm has recommendations for monitors, including a requirement for 1000 cd/m2 peak luminance in monitors for HDR colour grading of Netflix content, while SDR content requires just 100 cd/m2 peak.
