Live Internet video streaming at the World Travel Market 2003 exhibition

First public Internet demonstration of Forbidden Technologies' FORlive video streaming technology

Forbidden Technologies, the AIM quoted company which develops and markets video streaming products and services for the internet, announces the commercial availability of FORlive, an exclusive new product. FORlive represents an evolutionary step in Forbidden's product range in that video images are streamed live without any compromise on quality.

Travel Media Solutions, in partnership with Forbidden Technologies, has been appointed by Reed Exhibitions to promote the World Travel Market 2003 exhibition, 10th to 13th November, by producing live Internet coverage on the World Travel Market website,

Stephen Streater, Chief Executive, Forbidden Technologies plc, commented:

"This assignment represents a huge endorsement of our innovative and flexible FORlive technology which was recently launched at IBC2003. It also provides investors with an opportunity to see the product in action on our website

As with our other products, the video runs at high frame rate and plays automatically on opening a web page. It does not require plug-in players or additional software and will run on typical computers whether using traditional 56k modems or connected over broadband."
