    Hello friends,

    Tonight I have been asked if the Scarlet W Dragon 5K is really approved by Netflix since the Minimum data-rate of Bitrate of 240 Mbps at 23.98 fps are the Netflix Capture Requirements ...

    As far as I know this camera Max Data Rate is up to 140MB/s using RED MINI-MAGs...

    Any help Please? Thank you very much in advance!

    Yes, I believe it is, based on these two links (quick Google search)

    140 MB/s actually is 1120 Mb/s... :)

    I already answered this question for you on the Facbeook group, but in case anyone else is curious:

    You're mixing up your units. 240 megabits is far less than 140 megabytes.

    240 mbps = 30 MB/s

    140 MB/s = 1120 mbps.

    That said, they specifically say not to shoot on higher than 6:1 compression according to their camera specific guideliens, which works out to about 85 MB/s.
