Forbidden Technologies is newest SVG Europe Gold Sponsor
SVG Europe is delighted to welcome as a Gold Sponsor Forbidden Technologies, an award-winning company that develops and delivers cloud-based solutions for collaborative video post-production.
Quoted on the London Stock Exchange Alternative Investment Market, Forbidden partners with high-profile media and technology organisations including Atos, BIM, deltatre, EVS and Key Code Media.
The flagship product in the Forbidden Technologies range, FORscene, is one of the world’s most advanced cloud-based video post-production platforms, providing professional tools in a software as a service (SaaS) package for all video industries, including post-production, broadcast, news and sport. Launched at IBC in 2004, FORscene has been used to log, edit, review and publish more than four million hours of professional video content.
Sports broadcast is an area of particular interest to Forbidden Technologies. Recent projects include a collaboration with deltatre to deliver sports coverage to global audiences, most recently for golf events worldwide. As a result, deltatre now offers FORscene as part of its online solutions, providing its customers with tools to create and distribute video content to multiple platforms, and providing economies of scale to broadcasters and sports organisations. The organiser of Europe’s leading men’s professional golf tour is using deltatre and FORscene cloud post-production tools to reduce turnaround times significantly, improve efficiencies, save money, and ultimately deliver compelling content to drive a new content service that can be enjoyed by golf fans everywhere.
Jim Irving, commercial director at deltatre, comments: “Integrating FORscene with deltatre’s infrastructure has created an unrivalled platform for creating content around global sporting events. Using FORscene, clients can edit material from anywhere in the world as events are happening, while seamlessly integrating into deltatre’s Forge CMS. FORscene publishes the completed edits at full HD and distributes the finished video to multiple distributors as required.”
Reflecting on the decision to join the ever-growing ranks of SVG Europe sponsors, Stephen Streater, CEO of Forbidden Technologies, remarks: “Sports Video Group is on the leading edge of sports-production technology, which makes it an indispensable resource for the community of professionals that creates and distributes sports content. We’re thrilled to become a part of this influential organisation and look forward to showing the membership how our innovative cloud workflows can make a difference both to the quality of their products and to their bottom line.”
