Forbidden Technologies plc (AIM: FBT), the AIM-quoted market-leading cloud video platform owner, announces that Forscene has been chosen for use by Royal Holloway University of London’s ADAPT, a European Research Council-funded project researching the history of television production technology.
Using a combination of archived content and facility reconstructions, ADAPT will piece together the threads of the complex story of British broadcast production technologies since the 1960’s until the present day.
Forscene will be used as the remote editing suite for the project. Because of the volume of video content being fed in, organised, and edited from multiple sources across numerous locations, the task would have been near impossible with other technologies.
The project will run until 2018 and will contribute to the Company’s invoiced sales for 2016.
John Ellis, Professor of Media Arts and Royal Holloway, said:
“Forscene offers us the flexibility and scale to complete this project with the resources we have. It seems apt that as we research how production technology has evolved, we are using one of the most advanced technologies in the industry to tell this story.”
Aziz Musa, CEO of Forbidden, said:
“The ADAPT project offers us another opportunity to not only offer value where other technologies would struggle, but also to be part of one of the leading media universities in the world.”
