Forbidden Unveils Forscene Interface And MAM At IBC2014

News Image
Forbidden Technologies is to unveil a new version of Forscene with extra capabilities, a new interface and a new media asset management (MAM) system.

The new interface combines new graphics with updated functionality. Users can now upload both low- and high-resolution proxies of media to the Forscene cloud and swap between dynamically while working. They can use the low-resolution proxy for full functionality over slower connections, and then swap to view the high-resolution version.
"Since we introduced Forscene in 2004, the technology has evolved to be so much more than a video-editing system – but the interface hasn't kept pace," said Stephen Streater, CEO of Forbidden Technologies plc. "The new Forscene now has an interface to match its ten years of leadership as a high-performance professional cloud video platform. The new consistency makes for a unified experience from end to end, and a design that easily accommodates today's HD technology."
Forscene's new workflow management function has been introduced with the ability to make edits available for both review and approval/rejection from within the interface. Tasks are communicated via email with MPEG attachments, so reviewers don't have to be Forscene users to be able to participate in the process.
Furthermore, Forscene users with a synced tablet account will be able to review, comment, approve, or reject edits in the Forscene app while offline – with the app synching automatically when an Internet connection becomes available.
Other new Forscene features include the ability to publish with burnt-in timecode or any other metadata; expanded multicam logging to support up to 18 cameras simultaneously; and increased support for different formats that enables functions such as editing MXF files during ingest.
Forbidden is also adding a MAM system to Forscene. Numerous new capabilities include full media access control, the ability to search and review material, the ability to move media around the world, control of ingest servers and configuration of Forscene accounts.
Forbidden will demonstrate Forscene's new interface and functionality, along with a beta version of the Forscene MAM, at IBC2014 on stand 8.B38e. The new version of Forscene and the MAM will be available in late 2014.
