At the grand opening of Sony’s Digital Media Production Center (DMPC), the industry’s most complete capture to display facility, Sony Electronics connected users and creators to deliver the artists’ intent by driving hands-on experiences with the latest technology in Cinema. The venue hosted a press conference on Thursday, May30th, to reveal technology advancements with its VENICE full-frame digital motion picture camera. VENICE will receive additional High Frame Rate (HFR) capabilities and added workflow flexibility with a new Version 5.0 firmware update planned for January 2020.
Following the Version 4.0 firmware release this June, which includes an HFR license to support 120fps at 4K 2.39:1, 110fps at 4K 17:9, 75fps at 4K 4:3 and 60fps at 6K 3:2, VENICE’s Version 5.0 update will further enable cinematographers to shoot at speeds of up to 90fps at 6K 2.39:1 and 72fps at 6K 17:9/1.85:1. This addition enables VENICE to capture three times slow motion at 24p, even in 6K. Cinematographers can utilize the same camera across multiple speeds, maintaining the full-frame shallow depth of field, as well as the high picture quality of oversampling in 6K.
To see VENICE in person, including the Version 4.0 HFR capabilities and the popular VENICE Extension System, visit Sony at Booth #S101 in Stage 6 of Cine Gear Expo at Paramount Studios.
