Mobile News at IBC 2007

Forbidden Technologies' FORscene platform to deliver show news for fourth year

Forbidden Technologies today announces it is providing IBC 2007 with FORscene, its unique web-based post-production platform. Visitors can watch daily video highlights on their 2.5G and 3G handsets. The service is now in its fourth year.

IBC Television News is making videos of the action at IBC as it happens. Mobile phone users can recieve these videos, including product launches, company announcements and high profiles interview, via Bluetooth, by visiting Forbidden's stand (3.351).

"Forbidden's service at IBC 2007 embraces the ethos of the show perfectly,"

said John Holton, IBC Exhibition Chairman.

"Mobile TV is a growing industry which is of particular interest to our delegates. Forbidden's technology is a good working example of how content can be turned around quickly and re-purposed specifically for mobile phones."

The mobile service highlights the powerful functionality of the FORscene platform that, since its launch at IBC 2004, is extending its reach into the world's largest TV brands, production houses and post production facilities.

During the show, FORscene will enable the digitisation, compression and editing of bite sized clips over the web. These clips can then be published at the touch of a button, ready to be downloaded to the IBC-branded mobile player, or as a podcast, and then shared via Bluetooth between handsets at no cost.

"We are delighted to be providing our FORscene platform for the editing and dissemination of IBC News again this year,"

said Stephen Streater, CEO of Forbidden Technologies.

"The post-production market is embracing advanced technologies and our involvement with IBC 2007 allows the industry to view mobile TV's potential first-hand."
