FORscene used in prime time series, The Hospital

Forbidden Technologies, the AIM quoted developer of the market leading Cloud video platform FORscene, today announced that North One Television, part of All3Media, is using FORscene for the production of a new series of 'The Hospital.

'The Hospital' documents the relationship between teenagers and the NHS and is being shown on Channel 4.

North One Television shot DigiBeta rushes throughout and these were split-digitised into FORscene Load and local storage. Loggers added searchable metadata in FORscene, providing producers and directors with information to make rough-cut edits using FORscenes wide area editing tools. Sequences were then re-linked in edit suites for finishing.

Nicola Breadin, Head of Production, Factual & Entertainment, said:

"Ive used FORscene over a number of years and its benefits are clear. It allows the large amount of content shot for programmes such as 'The Hospital to be centralised and easily accessed by loggers and managers alike."

Pete Burns, Project Manager at Forbidden Technologies, said:

"North One has used FORscene for many years across numerous productions. The level of repeat customers confirms FORscenes position as an efficient workflow tool."
