Forbidden at IBC2014:

• New Forscene user interface look and feel (fall 2014)
• High-res codec enables dynamic display of high or low res proxy
• iOS and Android Forscene apps
• New publishing framework

• Movement of original source from one Forscene box to another
• New documentation for supported camera and ingest formats
Forscene Remains IBC TV’s Cloud Provider of Choice
IBC TV, the official broadcaster for IBC2014, will once again use Forscene to provide its self-service syndication workflow. A Forscene server based at the RAI conference center will compress and upload material shot by the IBC TV teams during the exhibition. Participating broadcasters and IBC exhibitors will be able to access library content provided under editorial control, including rushes and daily program footage. New this year is 24-hour coverage that will be available year-round to subscribing exhibitors and news outlets. Also for the first time, IBC will use Forscene to view entries and prepare content for the IBC2014 Awards. These awards recognize how tools are used to solve real-world puzzles and help media organisations to be more creative, more efficient, or better able to reach audiences — much as Forscene is doing for IBC.

Speaking Events at IBC2014
Stephen Streater, CEO of Forbidden Technologies, along with Donna Mulvey-Jones, head of post-production and facilities for Maverick TV, will co-present at the IBC Content Everywhere Cloud Solutions Pavilion in Hall 3.

Forbidden CEO Streater, along with Paul Wilkes, technical director at Halo and Portland Post, will co-present at the IBC Content Everywhere Workflow Solutions Pavilion in Hall 9. Expanding the Use of Cloud to Create More Efficient File-Based Workflows will discuss how Forbidden and Portland Post designed and implemented a cloud-based archival workflow for the BBC that capitalises on the savings (both in time and money) that can be made by synchronising projects’ post-production and archiving processes in the Forscene cloud.
