Forscene at IBC2015:
New Enhancements to the Forscene Cloud-Based Video Post-Production Platform
Forscene will showcase the following new developments at IBC2015.
– Virtualised Workflow for Digital-Rights Content
Forscene integrates with deltatre’s products and the Microsoft Azure(TM) cloud computing platform to provide the first completely hardware-independent solution for the post-production and distribution of digital rights content.
– Expanded and Improved Social Media Sharing
The platform’s unique ability to publish sub-clips and full highlights packages, including graphics and multilayer edits, directly to social media platforms and content distribution networks has been improved and expanded to include Twitter.
– Multicam Edit
Forscene’s up-to-18-camera multicam logging tool has been developed to now include multicam editing.
– Dual System Audio
To facilitate ingesting native rushes directly into Forscene, the platform now has the ability to sync separately recorded video and audio original source files.

Forscene Remains IBC TV’s Cloud Provider of Choice
IBCTV news, the official broadcaster for IBC2015, will once again use Forscene to provide its self-service syndication workflow. Participating broadcasters and IBC exhibitors will be able to access library content provided under editorial control, including rushes and daily program footage from Forscene. In addition, Forscene will work with IBC’s Rising Stars to enable their content to be packaged and made available to the IBCTV news team.
Speaking Events at IBC2015
The Forscene team will host the panel discussion “How the cloud is changing post workflows” in the Technology In Action Theatre, 3.A19, on Saturday, Sept. 12, at 14:30. This discussion will investigate the impact that the cloud has had across different sectors from reality talent shows to sports highlights and observational documentaries. Experts in each format explain how logging, editing, reviewing, and/or distributing content in the cloud has redefined “post” and changed their workflows.
“Launching our new interface at IBC2014 had an enormous impact on the industry’s perception of Forscene and we’ve seen an increase in the platform being used for editing particularly within sport over the past year as a result. We pride ourselves on being responsive to our clients’ needs, and the developments that we’re showcasing at IBC2015 are, once again, directly linked to existing or future projects. Our theme this year is Go Boxless’ and we will show how Forscene powers unique workflows that free users to think outside the box and get more done outside of the edit suite without heavy hardware requirements and regardless of geography.”
