IBC 2015: Forbidden Technologies has released what it described as the first end-to-end virtualised workflow for the post-production and distribution of video.

The hardware-independent solution, which will be showcased at IBC, is enabled by the integration of its Forscene platform with the Microsoft Azure cloud platform.

The workflow involves the Forscene ingest server running as a virtual machine on the Microsoft Azure platform to transcode and ingest live streams.
