IBC News to use FORscene to syndicate news footage
20th Aug, 2009
IBC TV News adopts FORscene to provide wide-area repurposing
Forbidden Technologies’ web-based tools to provide global access to news
Forbidden Technologies today announced that IBC TV News, the broadcaster for the
IBC 2009 exhibition in September, will use FORscene to syndicate news footage.
Available through a web browser, FORscene will be available to repurpose both
material for broadcast pieces and website videos during and after the exhibition.
A FORscene Server based in Amsterdam will provide immediate access to upload and
edit material shot on JVC’s GY-HM100 and GY-HM700 cameras used by the IBC TV
News teams. Additional video contributions from participating broadcasters and
IBC visitors will be uploaded under editorial control creating a library of
material including rushes and delivered daily programmes.
Built-in moderation tools through a range of access levels enable users to
search metadata attached to material. FORscene’s editing tools support
repurposed material as required for broadcast. Once complete, FORscene’s
auto-conform process will provide a high-resolution DV or MPEG-2 file to be used
in final broadcast pieces or to deliver news to exhibitors’ websites.
Stephen Streater, CEO of Forbidden Technologies, said:
"FORscene has been providing professional post-production services through the
web for over 5 years. We are looking forward to helping IBC TV News to use the
speed and flexibility of web-based syndication and repurposing to secure the
maximum coverage for IBC2009 and all its participants."
IBC 2009 runs from the 11th to the 15th of September. Visit Forbidden in Hall 7,
