New Forscene Review App To Launch

News Image
Forbidden Technologies has unveiled details of a new review app and UI for the Forscene Virtual Ingest Server running on Mac. The releases will make it easier for remote crews and contributors to use Forscene to collaborate on video productions.

The Forscene Review App is for reviewing and approving edits on-the-go. Editors working in the video editing software can drag their finished sequences to the review button and drop them there to make their edit available for review. The app alerts reviewers and makes the sequence available for them to play, scrub through, comment on and approve or reject from their iOS device.

Content for review is only available to Forscene account holders with access to the relevant project, but as the app has a custom UI design, reviewers do not need to be familiar with the Forscene interface to view and provide feedback on the shared content. This makes it suitable for producers and other executives that don't have hands-on editing skills.

Introduced at NAB Show 2016, Forscene's Virtual Ingest Server provides an alternative to traditional hardware-based ingest workflows by running Forscene's ingest software on a virtual machine on the user's laptop or computer. The new UI and automated setup for Mac users speeds up the setup process, making it easier for data wranglers on location to automatically create and upload proxies to the Forscene cloud while backing up shoot rushes.

The Virtual Ingest Server is currently being used by Curve Media on a new observational documentary series scheduled for broadcast in early 2017.

Claire Simpson, Series Producer, Curve Media, said: "Forscene's virtual ingest server is critical to the workflow of the remote obs doc series we're currently working on. It allows our editorial team to review and identify key story elements within hours of the shoot, even though the crew is hundreds of miles away. The sheer volume of footage we are uploading combined with the speed in which we can watch it has made the filming period so much easier and more efficient."

"Forscene is already the post-production tool of choice for remote productions," said Aziz Musa, CEO, Forbidden Technologies. "These new developments will make it even easier for teams across the globe to create fantastic content without complicated tech getting in the way."

The Forscene Review App and the new Forscene Virtual Ingest Server UI are scheduled for release by the end of 2016. They will be available for preview at the Next TV Summit & Expo and at NAB Show New York.
