Forbidden Technologies’ cloud-based video post production platform will serve as one of the core technologies behind IBC TV’s expansion into year-round programming. Forscene will also manage video content for the upcoming IBC2014 Innovation Awards.
IBC TV, the official TV and webcasting channel for the convention in Amsterdam, will go from broadcasting one 20-minute programme per day during the conference to 12 hours of continuous programming each conference day. Forbidden will supply IBC TV with unlimited access to the Forscene cloud and a 20-megabit uplink to a local Forscene server for video uploads during the show.
“We have partnered with IBC TV for the past six years to provide access to news footage during the week of the show, and now IBC TV will get even more value out of that partnership by using Forscene to make show footage available all year long,” said Greg Hirst, business development director, Forbidden Technologies. “Now anyone who is authorised will be able to use Forscene to tap into IBC TV’s wealth of content and reuse it long after IBC is over.”
Forscene will also be used to provide remote access to the IBC2014 Awards entries. Awards entrants will upload the high-resolution version of their video submission into Forscene, and IBC repesentatives will then use the technology to access the entries in both proxy and high-resolution form. Finally, Forscene will be used to deliver the original video source of the award entries to a London post house for production of video elements for the awards show.
