Forbidden Technologies plc (AIM: FBT, www.forbidden.co.uk) floated in February 2000. Forbidden develops, markets and licenses a powerful cloud video platform using its patented Blackbird technology. The technology underpins multiple applications which are used by rights holders, broadcasters, sports and news video specialists, post-production houses, other mass market digital video channels, and corporations.
The Blackbird technology allows full visibility on multi-location digital content, improves time to market for live content such as video clips and highlights for social media distribution which results in improved monetisation of video content. The Blackbird product suite offers a range of editing capabilities in the cloud, from the essential Blackbird Edge and Player, to the advanced Forte editing system.
Blackbird Edge and Player is the foundation technology of the Blackbird product line. Edge enables users to accelerate the visibility, immediacy and manipulation of video content for workflows across the media supply chain within the cloud. The Player allows users in the cloud to publish and review content and edits renderlessly and instantly, using the frame-accurate and frictionless control experience of a browser. The player can be embedded into internal and external websites, or shared as links for playback on desktop, tablet or mobile browsers.
Blackbird Ascent is designed to enable non-editors to frame-accurately, create event highlights from live or recorded sources, and rapidly publish to the web.
Blackbird Forte is designed for professional editors, and is a fully-featured cloud-native video editing system. Forte allows teams to hyper-accelerate the delivery of video content across the media supply chain with a market-leading suite of management and manipulation tools.
