Forbidden Technologies plc (AIM: FBT), the AIM-quoted owner and developer of the market leading cloud video platform, FORscene, is pleased to announce that it has established a partnership with T3Media, the leading provider of cloud-based video management, archiving, licensing , and distribution services for enterprise clients worldwide. T3Media's sports clients include Fox Sports and the NCAA(R).
Following a successful pilot with one of T3Media's clients, Professional Bull Riders Inc. (PBR), the Colorado-based firm has begun to implement FORscene across sports-editing projects for its other clients. A key enabler of the partnership is Forbidden's ability to integrate with EVS, the leading broadcast and media production systems for sports, opening up a valuable new market segment for FORscene.
Mark Lemmons, Chief Technology Officer, T3Media, said:
"We saw that many of our sports-oriented clients needed to move post production and distribution away from the venue in order to cut down on costs associated with having large teams of editors on site. After watching Forbidden's work with other major sports brands, we knew FORscene could be the perfect solution. We were sold after launching it with PBR's events. FORscene will provide our clients the ability to edit, publish, and archive from the scene of the action to their audiences faster and at a reduced production cost."
Stephen Streater, CEO, Forbidden Technologies plc, said:
"T3Media is a fantastic name to have on board and we look forward to working with them to bring even more efficient and effective cloud-based services to their clients. This partnership is tangible proof that the work that we've done to integrate FORscene with EVS's market leading broadcast and media production system is paying off".
