Platform Post chooses FORscene

Forbidden Technologies, the AIM quoted developer of the market leading Cloud video platform FORscene, is pleased to announce that Platform Post (“Platform”) has chosen to provide FORscene as its logging, rough cut editing and review / approval platform.

Platform has installed a FORscene Load Linux box, which compresses all the source video for each production and uploads it to the FORscene Cloud. Located in Central London, Platform was formed in 2001 to provide a complete post production solution with an emphasis on creative and technical excellence in a relaxing, personal environment.

Forbiddens broadcast post sales have been rising rapidly: revenue in the six months to 30 June 2011 rose by 94%, driven largely by the adoption of FORscene by Post Houses. The adoption of FORscene by Platform is building on the accelerating uptake of the FORscene platform and the confidence the industry has in the product.

David Tasker, Creative Director at Platform, says:

“At Platform, we provide the very latest tools and technical infrastructure to our clients. I have been aware of FORscene for some time, and have been waiting for the right opportunity to bring it into Platform. I am happy to say that this time has arrived”.

Jason Cowan, Account Manager at Forbidden Technologies, says:

“As an integrated part of the Platform post production workflow, FORscene will now be accessible to all Platform clients. This represents a continuation of Forbiddens successful strategy of partnering with established Post Houses who provide FORscene as a service to their clients. We look forward to bringing the benefits of Cloud-based FORscene worfklows
to a new range of exciting productions”.
