News Image
Forbidden Technologies has announced free training sessions incorporating the new Forscene interface unveiled at IBC2014.

Training for the company's flagship cloud platform will take place in Manchester and London at the end of November. The days will be split into three sessions; two for post-production users that focus on the interface and another for ingest and account managers that focuses on Forscene's new media asset management (MAM) system.

"The new Forscene interface and MAM are welcome upgrades that promise even greater functionality and more intuitive operation than ever before," said Stephen Streater, CEO at Forbidden Technologies plc. "These training sessions will give users a good understanding of all the new features and how to incorporate them into their post production workflows. We're especially pleased to have Jeff Krebs, our new regional manager over Canada and the Eastern U.S., leading the post-production session. Jeff is an accomplished video editor in his own right, so he will add another layer of insight to the training."

In the morning session, 'Forscene Ingest and Account Management', attendees will get an overview of the new MAM system. Topics will include: how to connect to local storage; assigning account access and setting up watch folders from any location in the world; browsing and viewing content and metadata; and moving, renaming, sharing, and publishing media stored on any Forscene server from anywhere in the world. The session will run from 10:00 - 12:00.

The afternoon session, 'Forscene for Post-Production Users' will introduce post-production users to the range of editing functionality built into the new interface. Demonstrations will include: logging and search functions; how to create storyboard edits/sync pulls/rough cuts; how to share files for reviews and approval; and how to export a project so that users can continue working in another platform.

Krebs, a skilled and experienced editor, will also show some of Forscene's advanced editing functions to demonstrate its capability as an end-to-end editing platform. The sessions will take place from 13:00 to 15:00 and from 15:30 to 17:30.

Training days are scheduled for November 25 at On the 7th at MediaCityUK in Manchester, and November 27 and 28 in London at the Soho Screening Rooms.
