This media was then accessible to their two editors in London and a third editor in Vancouver. The editors could immediately start their ofﬂine edit in Forscene, while the full resolution media was transferred back to the London-based operations centre via Signiant. Once the ofﬂine was complete and the full-res media had been received, the team moved the edit to Adobe Premiere Pro, via XML, for the online edit in London.
