Forbidden Signs Forscene Deal With Field59

News Image
Forbidden has signed a distribution deal with new enterprise video company Field59 Inc.

An 'offshoot' of Broadcast Interactive Media (BIM), Field59 is to integrate Forscene into its video platform for live-feed capture, editing, closed-caption and Web publishing solutions for its broadcast, sports, and education clients in North America.

Longtime Forscene user, BIM first integrated the cloud solution into its video platform, Bimvid, in 2009 for local TV stations.

Former BIM employees then began Field59 in late 2014. The new company acquired all Bimvid intellectual property and intends to expand beyond the broadcast TV industry to lead the enterprise video platform space. The company's customers include Sinclair Broadcast Group, One Caribbean Media Limited, Civitas Media, Bahakel Communications, LeSea Broadcasting Network, Dubuque Tribune Herald, Adorable IO, Madison+, Granite Broadcasting Corporation, SourceMedia Group, and WSGNA.

"BIM saw the potential of cloud technology early on and, by integrating Forscene into its platform, pioneered new workflows for local broadcasters," said Jason Cowan, director of business development at Forbidden. "We look forward to working with Field59 to continue that trend, developing and providing new and innovative solutions for its expanded client base."

Integrating Field59 live streams into Forscene will make it possible for clients to edit video-on-demand clips from live streams in real time, from one platform. It also means that Field59 clients will be able to stream live and edit in Forscene from a single encoder, a potentially significant reduction in both hardware investment and network bandwidth usage.

"Working with the team at Forbidden has been a pleasure. The company is a true partner in every sense of the word," said Derek Gebler, CEO and founder of Field59 Inc. "Forscene is the best cloud-based editing system on the planet, and I am excited to continue our relationship."

The Field59 team will demonstrate its integrated Forscene workflow at booth SL5305 at the 2015 NAB Show.
