Positive user feedback has helped enhance the Forscene post production system that lies behind IBC TV, and delivered a raft of improvements to users of the cloud-based platform.
IBC TV, the official broadcaster for IBC2014, will once again use Forscene to provide its self-service syndication workflow. A Forscene server based at the RAI conference centre will compress and upload material shot by the IBC TV teams during the exhibition.
Participating broadcasters and IBC exhibitors will be able to access library content provided under editorial control, including rushes and daily programme footage. New this year is 24-hour coverage that will be available year-round to subscribing exhibitors and news outlets.
IBC will also use Forscene to view entries and prepare content for the IBC2014 Awards for the first time this year.
As well as a new look and feel for the Forscene user interface and a new publishing framework, Forbidden Technologies is introducing a high-res codec for the system, to enable dynamic display of high or low resolution proxies. Users can also now move original source material from one Forscene box to another and take advantage of a new media asset management system.
In addition it is releasing iOS and Android Forscene apps and providing new documentation for supported camera and ingest formats.
