Forbidden Technologies scores agreement with Japanese telecommunications leader
Cloud video technology firm Forbidden Technologies announced on Tuesday that it has entered a preliminary collaboration with a Japanese telecommunications operator.
The collaboration, negotiated through the company’s partnership with Dragon Touch Systems, will see Forbidden Technologies’ Blackbird technology utilised to allow the telecommunications’ B2B customers to edit and version cloud-based content.
Daisuke Matsuo, chief executive of Dragon Touch Systems, said: "Our customer required a powerful cloud video platform solution to process high resolution videos, and Forte's ability to support multiple languages including Japanese, made it the perfect choice. I believe Blackbird Forte will serve as a catalyst for change in a traditional Japanese broadcast landscape."
The platform allows for reviewers and teams of editors to access content simultaneously, and allows for speed, unrestricted bandwidth and remote capabilities during collaborations.
A statement from Forbidden Technologies said the technology will improve time management, collaboration efficiencies and flexibility of content creators and broadcasters in the region.
Ian McDonough, chief executive of Forbidden Technologies, said: "We're delighted to announce this new deal through our partner, Dragon Touch Systems in Kanagawa, Japan. It represents a minor breakthrough in a major market. The customer has recognised the power of the platform and the ability to have a highly responsive workstation experience while working in the cloud, thanks to the Blackbird codec."
As of 1022 BST, Forbidden Technologies’ shares were down 2.10% at 7.00p.
