Forbidden Technologies, the AIM quoted owner and developer of the FORscene cloud video platform, is pleased to announce that Lion Television is using FORscene as its logging and rough cut editing platform at its facilities in Scotland.
Lion Television already has a long standing relationship with Forbidden, and is well versed with the FORscene platform having used it for over 18 months at its London facility in conjunction with post productions of Dream Date and Noise Squad. The addition of its Glasgow facility will significantly strengthen the relationship between Lion Television and Forbidden with initial projects to include Homes under the Hammer.
Matt Edwards, Head of Post Production of Lion Television, says:
“With hundreds of hours of footage shot, the Homes under the Hammer team have found FORscene to significantly aid the post production process, being used for managing and logging large volumes of media before it gets refined.”
Stephen Streater, CEO of Forbidden Technologies, says:
“I am very happy that Lion Television is now providing FORscene to its clients in Scotland – continuing FORscene’s growth outside of London and further broadening our geographic partnership base.”
