IMG has licensed the use of Forscene for all of IMG’s digital rights channels in 2015.

Under the agreement, IMG will use Forbidden Technologies’ Forscene to edit and distribute sports highlight video content.

IMG’s original brief was for a fast-turnaround subclipping and sharing solution but Forbidden said that after testing the project scope was expanded to include highlights editing and packaging. 

“My team tested a number of potential market solutions before selecting Forscene,” said IMG lead live engineer Brian Leonard.

Forscene was tested ingesting multiple concurrent live SDI feeds, editing highlights packages, conforming edits that included client-specified metadata, and publishing to the IMG content delivery network.

Forbidden director of business development Jason Cowan said: “Licencing Forscene to such an important sports brand is a great start to 2015 and we look forward to growing the relationship as IMG signs additional channels in the coming months.”
