VENICE features an all-new Full-Frame sensor with the classic 36 x 24-mm dimensions that have been a staple of photography for over 100 years…this sensor can capture images up to a maximum resolution of 6048 x 4032. Switchable imager modes mean VENICE can support an unprecedented number of cinematic aspect ratios for complete creative freedom.

A key benefit of VENICE is simultaneous recording using two recording media. For example, a production could use RAW/X-OCN data recorded by AXS-R7 for online editing and also use XAVC, Apple ProRes or MPEG HD for offline editing without waiting for any file conversion. VENICE can also record XAVC 4K and RAW/X-OCN* simultaneously. Therefore, another option would be to use XAVC 4K for quick turnaround mainstream production while using simultaneous recording RAW/X-OCN as a future-proof archive suitable for the highest quality HDR applications. Even without using AXS-R7, VENICE itself can record XAVC 4K and Apple ProRes 422 Proxy* simultaneously. VENICE is designed to support both the highest quality imagery and high-speed workflows.
