Forbidden Technologies Speaking Events During the 2014 NAB Show

LONDON — March 25, 2014 — Forbidden Technologies plc (AIM: FBT), the AIM-quoted owner and developer of the market-leading cloud video platform FORscene, announced that it will participate in several speaking events and joint demonstrations during the 2014 NAB Show.

Presentation at Microsoft(R) Booth
On Tuesday, April 8 at 4:30 p.m. at the Microsoft booth SL5110, Greg Hirst, business development director at Forbidden, will give a presentation titled “FORscene‘s Integration Solutions for Post-Producing Live Sports.” This presentation will explore how the FORscene cloud-based post-production platform has been integrated into Windows Azure(TM). The integrated solution provides both subclipping of live sports feeds and publishing of VOD highlight packages with inserted graphics and animations through the same, intuitive interface. FORscene will be shown running fully virtualized within Azure, ingesting a Smooth Streaming video stream and subclipping frame-accurately. Clips will be passed back to Azure for handoff to other content distribution networks. The presentation will also show the power of FORscene in a VOD workflow, where it combines all the tools typically required of NLEs yet runs in a browser on a standard laptop. Examples of real-life workflows will include details of a collaboration with deltatre at a variety of sports events.

NAB Show Session: The Future of Sports Video Production
During this 30-minute session on Tuesday, April 8 at 9:30 a.m. in room S227, Jim Irving, group marketing director at deltatre will present on how deltatre is pioneering resource-saving production workflows in the sports industry, particularly relating to cloud-based video production and metadata management. This presentation will explain how deltatre integrated FORscene into their workflow to allow remote post-production and publishing of Olympic content — enabling scalable delivery of video content to multiple broadcast teams with minimal incremental cost.
