Forbidden Technologies partners with EVS to showcase Cloud video

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

Forbidden Technologies (LON:FBT) is partnering with a leading outside broadcast producer to promote the firm’s FORscene Cloud video platform at a broadcast convention in the USA.

Clients in the sports and news markets have a “treat in store”, said Stephen Streater, chief executive of Forbidden, ahead of the National Association of Broadcaster (NAB) event in Las Vegas from April 8-11.

EVS is the partner and its products are tailored to enrich live productions across all industries from sports, news, entertainment and media, the company said.

Forbidden’s FORscene will be shown interfaced with EVS’s IPDirector to allow remote, browser-based editing of footage in sports centres or newsrooms.

The product will be shown working with EVS technology to support remote acquisition and editing of news footage by journalists in the field.

Luc Doneux of EVS sports division said: “We watched with interest as FORscene was used by sports broadcasters in 2012 to enhance their coverage of the major sporting events of the summer.

“The time has come to integrate FORscene with IPDirector and Xedio Dispatcher to allow our clients to benefit from the cost advantages and flexibility of cloud-based workflows.”
