Broadcast Tech News – Sony’s next-gen camera system used for principal photography on political thriller Official Secrets

 

Sony Electronics’s next-generation motion picture camera system, VENICE, has been used for principal photography on Entertainment One-produced political thriller Official Secrets, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January. Designed for high-end cinematography, VENICE’s full-frame sensor can capture images with a resolution of up to 6048 x 4032 in almost any format, and offers flexibility and creative freedom to match a filmmaker’s shooting requirements – from aspect ratios to bokeh and lenses.

DVB, an industry consortium that develops open interoperable tech specifications for digital media delivery, will demonstrate how it’s enabling an open standards-based approach to OTT and broadband television, at NAB 2019. It will also focus on Low Latency DASH (LL-DASH) and Multicast Adaptive Bit Rate (mABR) for video streaming applications. This marks the first time DVB has exhibited at the NAB Show since 2010. DVB is offering a free exhibits pass for the 2019 NAB Show with the code LV4984.
