In Topic: Why are 90% of Netflix series framed at 2:1 aspect ratio?

Thanks all
I think I was a bit unclear before, of course the resolution and aspect are two separate matters, I just meant Netflix's strictness about the first might imply their approach for the other...
In any case as Daniel said I imagined it would be their regulation.

so no specific limitation by the networks? 

I could imagine netflix as with their 4K fixation objecting to accept wider aspects.

'Scope ratio is actually 2.35:1 and I don't think any UK series actually shoot anamorphic, but "Ordeal by Innocence"  (BBC) recently had a narrow letterbox on our 16:9 set. I've just measured it, so that would be about 2:1.

 

Thanks for your reply Mark. Ill try and check out Ordeal by innocence!

Broadchurch shot on the cooke anam. couldent find any tech info about Ordeal, but would be pretty interesting if they both went for 2:1 extraction.... I wonder if thats because its an easier aspect for the networks to digest?

 

Of course traditionally scope is defined as 2.35 or 2.39, but recently with digital I see allot of original aspects extracted from anamorphic material, ranging from 2:1 to 2.66:1.
