NEWS MANIPULATE & EDIT Cloud editing Multiviewers Forbidden will showcase the updated version of its Forscene cloud editing platform at NAB (booth SL5305). The new Forscene has an improved user interface and provides the functionality of a media asset management (MAM) system, giving users the ability to: move media between Forscene servers in different locations; rename, share and publish media from various accounts in the Forscene MAM; manage and configure ingest servers from the cloud; and configure publishing settings and formats. Other new Forscene features include the ability to publish with burnt-in timecode or other metadata, expanded multicam logging to support up to 18 cameras simultaneously, and increased support for different formats that enables functions such as editing MXF files during ingest. “We’re looking forward to introducing the new Forscene and all the benefits that the world’s best cloud-based professional video editing software can offer to the US market,” said Jason Cowan, director of business development, Forbidden Technologies. “We’re confident that the new product developments and our demonstrations with integration partners will showcase Forscene’s power and versatility.” Decimator Design has launched the DMON-16S 1-to-16 channel multiviewer and an accompanying Lite version of the same product.

The sale marks Calrec’s first Summa installation in the UK. “With the number and complexity of news programmes we produce each week, and the number of audio sources required to do it, we needed a console that would keep pace with our dynamic operation, with comprehensive channel processing and bus facilities that could cater to every clean-feed scenario,” said Eric Wisby, sound supervisor for RT UK. “Summa’s relatively small size makes it useful for small TV control galleries and outside broadcast vehicles. It carries a lot of capability in a reasonably sized footprint. And it is a given that any Calrec mixer is going to produce excellent sound.” RT UK has taken on a Summa 128 with a 3U modular I/O box furnished with a specific combination of cards to provide 24 mic/line inputs, 32 analogue line inputs, 24 analogue line outputs, eight opto inputs/16 relays, and 32 digital AES inputs and outputs. 22 | KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 99 MARCH 2015
