Forbidden Technologies plc (AIM: FBT) announces further developments on its Forscene video cloud platform.
Forbidden is adding two new apps to its innovative camera to screen video management cloud solution. Together, the apps improve the usability and efficiency of the Forscene platform, further broadening its appeal in the market. Forbidden already has one of the most comprehensive SaaS platforms for rapidly generating clipping and highlights packages for sports and news. It is also used extensively with reality TV and factual programmes for highly efficient remote logging and non-linear editing.
The first app, ‘Virtual Ingest’, significantly eases the uploading of video content into the Forscene cloud, reducing the need for dedicated hardware. The app experience allows users to create virtual ingest servers on any standard Mac or PC, allowing customers to upload media to the Forscene cloud from any location with as little as a 1.5Mb/s connection (the equivalent of tethering to a 3G mobile phone).
The second app, ‘Review’, is specifically designed for producers and executive directors. Through ‘Review’, editors can send their edits to a designated reviewer. The reviewer receives a notification on their iPhone or iPad and is able to view the content and add timecode comments. These comments will then appear back in the Forscene Editing interface at the exact point the comment was made.
Aziz Musa, Forbidden CEO, commented:
“This is an exciting time for Forscene. The ‘Virtual Ingest’ app reduces the startup cost of using Forscene, allowing us to both address new market segments and offer trials to prospects in a fraction of the time previously possible. The ‘Review’ app gives a key decision-maker, executive producers, a dedicated experience tailored to their needs, whilst significantly reducing the time from edit to approval.”
