Forbidden partners with Brightcove

Forbidden Technologies today announced that it has partnered with Brightcove, the leading online video platform. The partnership will enable Forbidden Technologies to integrate FORscene, the Companys Cloud-based video editing platform, into the Brightcove platform, enabling organizations to tap into the full suite of video publishing and distribution capabilities from Brightcove and video editing features from Forbidden.

FORscene enables video, audio and still images to be uploaded into the Cloud from either a PC or Mac and includes frame-accurate logging and editing tools. The simple to learn, yet powerful, platform gives users the benefits of Cloud computing. Searchable metadata enables targeted advertising – published content is directed automatically as H.264 to the Brightcove platform for multi-resolution compression and hosting in the users channel.

Metadata added in FORscene can be published with the video. This material can be used to direct targeted advertising throughout the video. By increasing the accuracy of targeted advertising, this provides added value to video content.

Cameron Church, Technical Channel Director of EMEA, Brightcove said:

“We are always looking to bolster our Brightcove Alliance partner program with value-added technology and services that complement the Brightcove platform. FORscene will give our users the tools to create engaging video content that can be easily distributed through the Cloud”.

Pete Burns, Project Manager at Forbidden Technologies said:

“The world of Cloud computing is rapidly growing with the Cloud now providing centralised productivity tools. We are pleased to partner with Brightcove, as the unique combination of FORscene and Brightcove will help to bring online video monetization to a new level”.
