T3Media Signs FORscene Deal

News Image
Forbidden Technologies has partnered with with T3Media, provider of cloud-based video management, archiving, licensing, and distribution services, over the company's cloud-based FORscene platform.

The deal was struck following a successful pilot using FORscene for Professional Bull Riders Inc. (PBR) events. T3Media has now begun to use FORscene for additional sports editing projects for its clients.
"Our sports and live event clients need to move online post production away from the venue in order to cut down on costs associated with having teams of editors on site," said Mark Lemmons, CTO, T3Media.
"We've always been impressed with FORscene, and after a recent set of successful field tests with PBR we've added FORscene into the mix for T3Media Sports.
"This enables media managers anywhere to make edits and push content directly from live events to our client's systems and audiences faster, more consistently and at a reduced production cost – all without having to be 'in the truck'."
T3Media provided editing, publishing and archiving services in the PBR pilot. They installed two FORscene servers, one for redundancy, into the OB truck and integrated them with EVS IPDirector. The servers took in two live feeds, retaining a copy of the high-resolution feed on the FORscene server and also transcoding it in order to upload proxies into the FORscene cloud.
Editors in the PBR office in Colorado pulled content from the cloud to log and cut highlight clips, and then published it along with the edit decision list (EDL) back to the FORscene server. From there, FORscene conformed the timeline on the server and published it to the Perceptive Media (formerly Twistage) system for online distribution.
In terms of archiving, the process was the same except that the editors in Colorado cut a 90-minute archive timeline and published the EDL back to the EVS equipment in the OB truck, which then created a playlist in IPDirector.
The playlist played out onto a separate drive attached to the EVS kit to create a backup of the archived material, which was sent to T3Media for archiving.
"Using FORscene on projects for PBR gave T3Media a good idea of how valuable it would be for other similar projects," said Greg Hirst, business development director, Forbidden Technologies plc. "Through this partnership, T3Media is well-positioned to offer even more efficient and effective cloud-based services, publishing directly from FORscene to its archive, which will save time and money for its clients."
Forbidden will demonstrate FORscene at the 2014 NAB Show in booth SL5305.
