Forbidden At The Heart Of IBC TV

News Image
Forbidden Technologies' post-production platform Forscene served as one of the core technologies behind IBC TV’s expansion into year-round programming at this year's show in Amsterdam. For the first time, Forscene was also part of managing video content for the IBC2014 Innovation Awards.

"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 plc. "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."
IBC TV changed this year from broadcasting one 20-minute program per day during the conference to 12 hours of continuous programming each conference day. Forbidden supplied 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. Clip names and other metadata were added at the point of ingest so content was searchable in Forscene. From there, authorised exhibitors and broadcasters were able to use Forscene to view and select material they would like to use in their own programming.
"The idea behind this expansion was to transform IBC from a weeklong event into a year-round resource," said Sue Robinson, producer, IBC TV. "Now we will not only be able to get the content out to more news outlets and encourage more reuse during the show, but after the show as well."
Forscene was also used to provide remote access to the IBC2014 Awards entries. Awards entrants uploaded the high-resolution version of their video submission into Forscene over a standard Internet connection using the Web upload option.
