Forbidden Partners With Take 1 Transcription

News Image
Forbidden has partnered with UK-based Take 1 Transcription, provider of transcription, captioning, and translation services, that will connect Take 1's transcription capability to Forbidden's cloud-based platform Forscene.

Now Forscene users will be able to access Take 1's service directly from the Forscene interface with the touch of a button.
"Many of our customers rely on time-coded transcripts as a valuable source of information during post-production, but getting those transcripts in hand can be a cumbersome process," said Greg Hirst, business development director, Forbidden Technologies plc. "Our partnership with Take 1, which serves many of the major production companies, studios, and networks in the U.K. and the U.S., means our customers can skip the manual steps involved with initiating a transcription and just push a button instead, leaving them well on their way to a more efficient workflow."
Producers select the content in Forscene to be transcribed, and then click a button to send proxy files to Take 1. Take 1 receives the transcription order, where it is processed by the company. The transcript is then imported back into Forscene as an XML file so that it gets linked back to the master video in the Forscene cloud.
At that point, production teams can use Forscene's logging to add more metadata around visual descriptors, locations, and other information.
Forscene's search tools can then be used to scan the transcript and the additional metadata to find just the right clips. Then teams can use Forscene to complete some or all of the editing process, from stringouts to publishing, with review and approval cycles throughout.
"More and more of our clients are embracing cloud-based post-production and using platforms like Forscene, so we needed to ensure our service was accessible directly from the cloud," said Dom Bourne, CEO of Take 1. "By integrating our transcription service into Forscene, we are removing an entire step in the workflow, allowing content to flow seamlessly from Forscene to Take 1 for immediate transcription with resulting transcripts importing back effortlessly. This integration helps further compress the time between the shoot and the edit, so clients can focus on making TV programmes and not worry about logistics."
