Forbidden launches multicam

Forbidden demonstrates FORscenes new multicam functionality at NAB 2010

Forbidden Technologies, the AIM quoted developer of the FORscene Cloud video platform, is demonstrating support for multi-camera feeds on its FORscene video platform at NAB 2010 in Las Vegas this week.

Forbidden is using the NAB 2010 show to launch its latest push into traditional desktop markets – FORscene is accessed over the internet through a web browser. No longer limited to single video feeds, FORscene is leveraging its unique technology base to allow real time logging and editing of up to eight live video feeds. The functionality is similar to a studio gallery vision mixer, with the ability to view and mix video feeds.

FORscenes powerful patented navigation tools have already proven their strength, enabling efficient location and selection of relevant material in high volume productions. Multi-camera support will increase opportunities for FORscene in high volume, high shooting ratio productions such as reality television.

Stephen Streater, CEO, Forbidden Technologies, said:

“With multicam, FORscene has confirmed its lead in professional Cloud-based video tools. Support for multiple synchronised video windows across standard internet connections further demonstrates the power and flexibility of the FORscene video platform”.

Pete Burns, Project Manager, Forbidden Technologies said:

“The large broadcast companies are looking to take advantage of web-based solutions. Interest from this sector has led Forbidden to accelerate direct support in FORscene for multi-camera productions. With over 1,000,000 hours of professionally shot video handled by the FORscene platform to date, we can easily handle even the biggest productions worldwide”.

“We look forward to welcoming visitors to the Forbidden Stand at SL8305″
