Forbidden Technologies, makers of the editing software Forscene, will be at IBC in Amsterdam showing its end-to-end virtualized workflow for posting and distributing of video content. The hardware-independent solution is enabled by Forscene’s integration with the Microsoft Azure cloud-computing platform.
The workflow sees the Forscene ingest server running as a virtual machine on the Microsoft Azure platform to transcode and ingest live broadcast streams into Forscene accounts seconds behind the live feed. Video editors can then create subclips or full highlights packages using Forscene’s NLE from anywhere. Once the edit is complete, they can drop the sequence back onto Azure for faster-than-realtime conforming and distribution.
IBC attendees can experience the virtualized workflow by competing in a simulated car race, editing the race footage in Forscene and then sharing the video on social media — without needing any Forscene hardware.
