FORscene wins major sports deal with YouTube

Forbidden Technologies, the AIM quoted developer of the market leading cloud video platform FORscene, is pleased to announce that YouTube is using FORscene for a major sporting event being held in London this summer.

Forbidden announced in December 2011 that YouTube had licensed Forbidden Technologies' FORscene platform.

FORscene is being integrated into a larger YouTube system for use by multiple YouTube clients for professional editing of dozens of live and near-live sports feeds this summer. FORscene provides the professional cloud editing and transcoding components of the system.

Claude Ruibal, Global Head of Sports Content Partnerships at YouTube, says:

"As the world's leading video site, YouTube has a strong commitment to providing quality content, and sport is a significant part of this. I am delighted to be using FORscene's exceptional cloud-based video platform for the cloud editing and transcoding components of YouTube's offering."

Stephen Streater, CEO, Forbidden Technologies, says:

"FORscene's scaleability and ability to edit content as it comes in are well suited to sport. I am happy to have found an opportunity to demonstrate FORscene's capabilities in a major sports project."
