EVS and Forbidden
Technologies Team up to Power IBC TV News’ Connected Workflow
Liège, Belgium – 6
August 2011 – EVS and Forbidden Technologies are partnering during IBC to
provide IBC Television News with an advanced web-connected news production
infrastructure allowing remote editing operations through web browsing and
IBC TV News news production infrastructure is relying on EVS Xedio
for the integrated production workflow and Forbidden Technologies FORscene
solution for web editing, web-delivery and media conforming operations.
Both solution providers have decided to combine their technologies to enable
unique capabilities in the newsroom infrastructure of IBC TV News.
New cloud-based workflow operations will be made available to IBC TV staff
and IBC exhibitors, and will also be showcased to visitors on the stand of
EVS (Hall8 B90) and Forbidden Technologies (Hall 7 J15e) during the show.
The IBC TV News connected workflow
proposed by EVS and Forbidden Technologies allow remote users to search,
browse and edit media ingested on the EVS central near-line storage of IBC
TV News (including news and live feeds or footage from ENG crews) through
the Forbidden Technologies web-connected platform FORscene. Proxy file
generation will be managed by FORscene during the High Definition media
ingestion on the EVS central storage. HD and ProxyWeb browsing and reviewing
operations will be facilitated by the associated metadata used as keywords
by the remote users.
Maximilien d’Oreye, Business
Development Manager at EVS says: “cloud computing and remote media editing
are much more than the hype of the moment, it is a real opportunity for
broadcasters to increase the flexibility of their workflows and reduce
their operational costs at the same time. The cooperation between Forbidden
Technologies and EVS here at IBC is an occasion to experience how these new
technologies can change the way sport, news and entertainment content are

partnerships with leaders in their respective fields. Now that Cloud
