As film nerds and TV lovers, Netflix always keeps us on the edge of our seats. From the company’s early days as a DVD rental-by-mail service to its current status as a go-to source for streaming entertainment globally, Netflix has forever changed the way content is created, distributed and consumed. Their dedication to innovation extends deeply to the creative community, as they continue to reimagine production and post workflows to let storytelling shine. At Adobe, this mission underscores everything we do.
Today, we’re excited to share that Adobe will be joining Netflix’s new Post Technology Alliance, a program for manufacturers committed to serving the evolving needs of the post-production community through innovation and support. Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Adobe After Effects CC will receive a Post Technology Alliance product designation, a mark of quality, service, and support. The Post Technology Alliance logo signals that a product meets and will continue to meet Netflix’s high quality technical and delivery specifications. Together, we’ll work hand-in-hand to solve the challenges currently faced by post-production professionals and push the boundaries of technology so creativity can flow freely.
From cultural sensation Stranger Things 2 to the masterfully executed MINDHUNTER to the controversial and intriguing Wild, Wild Country, we’ve been wowed by the Netflix shows created with the help of our professional video tools like Premiere Pro and After Effects. And we can’t wait to queue up the projects coming soon to Netflix, like the Coen Brothers’ film The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, edited with Premiere Pro.
“The creatives behind Netflix’s original content are truly at the top of their game,” said Van Bedient, senior strategic development manager at Adobe. “Through the Post Technology Alliance, we’re excited to support the creative community and align with one of the biggest innovators in entertainment today to build optimized post-production workflows together.”
“At Netflix, empowering our creative partners is incredibly important, and the Post Technology Alliance will build a more seamless experience from production through post-production,” said Chris Fetner, director of post partnerships & integrations at Netflix. “Products that bear the logo are committed to better interoperability and faster innovation cycles, which will allow artists to focus their energy on what matters most—the storytelling.”
