Forbidden Technologies has announced that BBC News 24 is using FORscene to stream the channel to its network of field reporters across the world and to store footage for training purposes. The streaming service is designed to allow field correspondents to follow the angles and comments taking place in the studio and to tailor their reports accordingly.
In addition, program footage is being stored on a weekly basis, allowing the news teams to look retrospectively at how stories were reported. Forbidden's FORscene platform utilizes advanced digital compression techniques to deliver a live video stream to PCs, Macs, and laptops via the web. Reporters can scroll through the content to the exact timecode, which is of interest to them by using the cursor. They can then save content to their desktops for review at a later date.
