A key benefit of the VENICE camera family is its use of X-OCN (eXtended tonal range Original Camera Negative). This recording format gives you all the benefits of a raw workflow but without huge file sizes normally associated with uncompressed raw. It takes everything that the sensor captures and uses a clever encoding process to store that information in a user friendly, compact, 16-bit MXF file. This is particularly beneficial for 8K and other high-resolution recordings, such as 6K with the original VENICE and even higher with VENICE 2’s 8.6K sensor.
To demonstrate the benefits of X-OCN and VENICE 2, we worked with Storyline and Claus Rosenløv (DFF) to shoot footage in Copenhagen and its surroundings in the summertime with lots of bright colours and dynamic movement. Locations featured water, castles, sunlight, lowlight, and lots of colourful dresses in Danish design.
