Netflix is the leading provider of streaming video, a lot of it original content: features, shorts, series, documentaries, comedy specials & unscripted content. Optimizing content quality & longevity without compromising efficiency across all types of projects presents significant challenges, but that's what the Creative Technologies & Infrastructure team does by setting technical requirements & best practices, driving new industry standards, creating new tools & providing direct support to Netflix Original Productions.

The Creative Technologies & Infrastructure Team
Staying up-to-date with the most advanced developments in professional & consumer motion picture & sound technology & practices, evaluating their applicability to our goals, & supporting their implementation: this is our everyday. Our engineers are subject matter experts who offer varied yet overlapping backgrounds in motion picture production, post-production & distribution - image science, editorial, color correction, image capture, encoding, compression, exhibition, facility design, storage, video. We collaborate with the crews as well as our internal production, post-production, distribution, marketing & development teams, advising on technical decisions, setting best practices, detailing & explaining specifications.
Quite often, our team is the link between the product (''Netflix the OTT Service'') & the content (''Netflix the Studio) on matters of video & audio technology.
