Content Hub - Preparing Pre-Release Servicing Turnovers

 


 

Common Servicing Elements

Pre-Release files shall be created from the source that represents final locked picture, final color grade, final VFX, and final sound when possible. These files may be used as image/sound source for downstream creative assets (trailers, edits, promos, etc.). Please consult with the appropriate Netflix Post Production team to determine the required file format.

Pre-Release Asset Types

  • Pre-QC: used for initial QC pass for image and sound technical and production-related purity
  • Content Localization: used as picture and audio reference for transcription, translation and frame-accurate lock to final Printmaster and M&Es; for use in language dubbing, subtitle creation, and language dub/sub QC.
  • PR / Viscomm
  • Marketing: Partner marketing AV content
