While Netflix is a first-time sponsor of Mix Presents Sound for Film & Television, the company’s mark has been all over the event these past few years through participation in expert panels on technology and in the presentation of episodic programming. The rise of streaming services in both the production and distribution of high-quality content has taken on increasing importance in 2020 with the closure of exhibition spaces for most of the year, and through development of technologies such as Adaptive Compression for Audio and the distribution of Dolby Atmos content, Netflix has worked to ensure that consumers are delivered the highest-quality content, as the creators intended.
Netflix takes pride in its audio teams and its audio services, both within the company and as it supports the crews working on its films and television series.
This year, Netflix is the proud sponsor of The Composers Lounge, featuring discussions with Nathan Barr, Will Bates, Laura Karpman, Fabrice Lecomte and Daniel Pemberton.
