RDF Television uses Forscene for convenient storage, remote access and editing of its media throughout long-term reality film projects.
The company produces over 100 hours of network factual television every year for principal broadcasters, filming contributors from all across the country.
RDF needed a solution to support a three-year ongoing project with sporadic filming throughout its duration. For this, they needed to consistently access and log their media with the option to edit whenever required – without any major investment in storage or edit suites.
Keeping all of their media on Avid storage throughout the duration of the project would have proved too expensive. Hardware-based storage at the office would only allow them to view the media without editing.
