Sony Announces New VENICE Extension System 2 and VENICE 2 Version 2.00 Firmware Update with Powerful New Features and Capabilities

The new VENICE Extension System 2 increases flexibility with 8K data transmission and extends up to 12 meters away from the camera body

Dubai, UAE, 9 September 2022 – Sony is announcing new updates and developments for the VENICE 2 motion picture camera system, including the release of the VENICE Extension System 2  for expanded flexibility and version 2.00 firmware update.

“The VENICE 2 was born from the voice and feedback of the cinema community,” said Sajeer Shamsu, Head of Digital Imaging at Sony Middle East & Africa, said. “Thanks to the continued feedback of our customers in the Middle East & Africa region, we have been able to fuel the ongoing development of this powerful full-frame cinema camera with the mission to enable more creative freedom.”

VENICE Extension System 2
The VENICE Extension System 2 is an updated version of the original VENICE Extension System and will be showcased for the first time at IBC 2022 in Amsterdam from September 9th to 12th at the Sony booth. The Extension System 2 is a tethered extension system that allows the camera body to detach from the actual image sensor block with no degradation in image quality. 

The VENICE Extension System 2 adds important enhancements over the original, including compatibility with both the VENICE and the VENICE 2  and can transmit wide bandwidth sensor data over longer distances. In addition, the Extension System 2 offers greater mobility and compatibility with either a 3-meter or a 12-meter cable – without the need for a repeater. 

Thanks to its small size and light weight, filmmakers have greater creative freedom with the ability to shoot in tight spaces, go handheld or mount the Extension System 2 on gimbals and cranes. 

“The original VENICE Rialto System has been such a great resource to give me added flexibility for feature films. On Top Gun: Maverick, the small form factor of three VENICE Extension System, paired with three cameras, allowed us to place 6 VENICE cameras, in the cockpit of an F-18 fighter jet to capture the excitement of flying in-camera. The extension system has given me the flexibility to be as creative as I want to be,” said Oscar award-winning  cinematographer Claudio Miranda ASC. 

Academy-award-winning cinematographer Erik Messerschmidt  has been shooting with the VENICE 2 Extension System on an upcoming project. He offered this feedback, “The VENICE 2 Rialto has been a huge asset for me. It frees us to use the sensor we already love in ways we never could without it.”

In addition, the Extension System 2 is nearly the same size of the original system, measuring 158 x 147 x 126 mm, and weighing around 2.1 kg . For added capabilities, such as when shooting for Visual FX, the Extension System 2 is equipped with a tilt/roll sensor  on the camera head that detects motion. It records this information in the metadata and outputs the data through the camera's SDI. 

For added functionality, the Extension System 2 also has four assignable buttons  – making it perfect for handheld configurations. This feature allows buttons to be assigned for functions, such as changing ND filters, REC Start/Stop, etc. 

Availability
The new VENICE Extension System 2 will be available in the Middle East & Africa region from early 2023.

Additionally, the VENICE 2 Version 2.00 firmware update comes with added functionality to assist with focus. Version 2.00 allows one of nine positions on the viewfinder to be magnified to assist with focus and shooting.

New functionality has also been added for virtual production. Version 2.00 firmware update adds sync functions, including phase shifting of Genlock, which enables you to shift on-camera artifacts until they minimised. Additionally, Genlock is now available when shooting at high frame rates.
