Forbidden wins Royal Television Society Technology Award

Video streaming and editing specialist, Forbidden Technologies, has won the Royal Television Society Award for Technology in the Post Production Process for its flagship product, FORscene.
The award was presented at the prestigious ceremony at BAFTA in London.
FORscene's web-based functionality for logging, editing, reviewing and publishing has seen it used by major broadcast and production companies including GMTV, Mentorn and Granada, along with the initiation of a reseller partnership with Nats Post Production, a leading provider of postproduction facilities.
The RTS Technology Awards, which are the "gold standard of achievement in the television community," seek to recognise excellence in technological activities from 'scene-to-screen and back'. The award for Technology in the Post Production Process is for products that have done the most to improve the processes between original creation or capture of new content, the restoration of previously-captured content, and the storage of completed content prior to delivery to the user. It was presented by Stephen Cole, Presenter, BBC World.
"This award underlines the recognition by the broadcast production industry of the significant business benefits of using web-based technology," said Stephen Streater, CEO of Forbidden Technologies. "The success of FORscene is reflected in projects and partnerships already undertaken including GMTV, Mentorn, Nats, and Granada, and this award will add to its ever-growing reputation."
