The VENICE is designed to start you off with a basic camera and, through firmware updates and licenses, upgrade it over time. This allows you to upgrade it as your needs grow, instead of having to buy a whole new camera system. Licenses can be permanent upgrades or used for limited periods of time, for those jobs that require more features than you normally use.
The sensor features more than 15 stops of dynamic range and has been designed to exceed the BT.2020 color space—which is larger than the DCI-P3 color space—enabling you to create stunning images with a camera that already exceeds future specs.
In full-frame, you can use the full 6048-pixel width of the sensor for widescreen spherical 2.39:1, or large format scope. A firmware upgrade and license are required for full-frame recording.
The VENICE features a high-speed readout that minimizes the dreaded "jello" camera effect that plagues some CMOS sensor cameras.
The VENICE comes with the industry-standard PL lens mount. It is compatible with all Super 35 and full-frame PL lenses, spherical and anamorphic. The removable lens mount includes contacts that support Cooke /i Technology. The camera's lens information is recorded as metadata frame by frame.
Removing the PL Mount exposes the camera's E-Mount, which allows compatibility with E-Mount lenses. This E-Mount is designed with a lever lock that eliminates the need to rotate your lens when mounting, and the lever lock secures the lens in the mount minimizing play. Rotating of the locking collar means that in most cases lens support rigs don't need to be removed, which saves time during production. A planned firmware update is required to take full advantage of the E-Mount.
The VENICE records XAVC UHD 4K or HD ProRes internally to its SxS card slots. An optional AXS-R7 on-board recorder will enable 16-bit Raw and X-OCN recording to AXS cards with a future firmware update.
