VENICE Firmware Update Version 4.0 Now Available
By: SonyCine Team
When VENICE first launched in the Spring of 2018, offering up to 30 fps 6K Full Frame and up to 60 fps in 4K with the sensor windowed down to Super35, two of the most popular questions from end users were, When is high framerate coming, and When is 120 fps coming? With the June 2019 release of firmware Version 4.0, that much requested feature is coming to a VENICE camera near you in an optional HFR license, available on a 7-day, 30-day or permanent license.
6K 60 FPS, 4K 120 FPS
4K 2.39:1 in Super35 up to 120 fps
4K 17:9 in Super35 up to 110 fps
4K 4:3 in Super35 up to 72 fps with anamorphic lenses
6K 3:2 Full Frame up to 60 fps

All of the High Frame Rates (except 6K 50/60p) support X-OCN recording, including X-OCN XT implemented in Version 3.0.
Other features also included in firmware upgrade:
