Forscene for iPad(R)
Also new for SATIS 2014, the Forscene app gives iPad(R) users a tool for connecting with the Forscene cloud on the go. Forscene for iPad is the perfect introduction to Forscene -- users can tag clips, perform rough cut edits, and upload and download clips, making it easier to prepare video for full editing in Forscene or other nonlinear editing systems. Doing this preparation ahead of time makes the entire post-production process more efficient and less costly.

New Integration Partners
Forscene now has two new partners, Take 1 and Timecode Buddy, that help to improve the user experience by allowing users to do more without leaving the Forscene environment.

The partnership between Take 1 and Forscene has yielded an automated process for producing transcripts. Producers select the content in Forscene to be transcribed and then simply click a button to send proxy files to Take 1. Take 1 receives the transcription order, which can then be immediately processed by the company's highly trained, distributed workforce. Once completed, the transcript is imported back into Forscene as an XML file so that it gets linked back to the master video in the Forscene cloud.

The next partnership is with Timecode Buddy, and it helps users capture important metadata in Forscene from the very start of production while making sure the metadata is synchronized and searchable throughout the workflow. With the Timecode Sync plugin, MovieSlate users can leverage SMPTE timecode that's synced over Wi-Fi, in real time, from the extremely accurate Timecode Buddy system. This means that MovieSlate notes containing shoot log information reference the same timecode as the media itself. As a result of the Forscene integration, the MovieSlate shoot notes then automatically link back to the media when they're imported into Forscene. This process ensures that producers starting work in Forscene already have some basic notes from which to build more detailed logs. All information is present throughout the Forscene workflow as searchable metadata to allow for fast assembly and editing.
