Forbidden Technologies plc (AIM: FBT), the AIM-quoted owner and developer of Forscene (the market-leading cloud video platform), Captevate (the consumer video editor), and eva (the video social network), is pleased to announce that Forscene has been selected by an international post-production facility for use for the first time on a production to be distributed in the Middle East.
The production is being recorded in Toronto and Manchester and will be edited in Los Angeles and London for distribution in Iran and a number of other Middle Eastern countries. It is a well-known TV format based on documenting the real-time reactions of families watching TV shows in their homes, the rights to which have been sold globally following the success of the British original, which itself already makes use of the Forscene platform.
Aziz Musa, CEO of Forbidden Technologies, said:
“Our Forscene platform is ideal for companies with multiple locations globally creating content for numerous international markets. Our core existing markets are the UK and North America, so we are delighted to have won our first client making content for distribution in the Middle East.”
