FORscene‘s ingest once workflow allows entire TV programmes to be made with only one play through of the source tapes. FORscene stores both the browse quality video for working with on the Web, and the broadcast quality content for the final broadcast production, usually finished on FCP or Avid. The latest series made using this workflow had nearly 1,000 hours of source material, so ingest once saved hundreds of man hours for ingest, the cost of tape machine hire, and Avid/FCP ingest time.
