After a six-month trial, the UK’s fifth largest broadcaster Channel 5 has invested in a FORscene cloud video server platform to improve workflow efficiency.

FORscene was introduced in the middle of test-case production cycles and staff received no formal training for the solution.

Undeterred, Channel 5 says that it gained workflow efficiencies offered during the trial in which the system saw use as a logging and rough-cut tool on Go Hard or Go Home, where it replaced tape and paper-based logging. Staff involved in the testing phase requested that FORscene be included in the plans for future productions — influencing the executive decision to purchase from Forbidden Technologies.

Launched at IBC in 2004, FORscene is claimed by its makers to be one of the world's most advanced cloud-based video post-production platforms.

"I have been impressed by FORscene's capabilities during the trial and I look forward to exploring the full depth of the system's merit as our workflows develop," commented Claire Freeman, head of post-production at Channel 5. Now in place permanently, FORscene will be applied by Channel 5 from the outset of the next production, The Great Christmas Toy Giveaway.
