Forbidden signs up Techtel to distribute FORscene in South East Asia

Cloud-base video editing software developer Forbidden Technologies (LON:FBT) has signed an agreement with Techtel to distribute its flagship FORscene platform in South East Asia.

Techtel is a significant distributor in South East Asia, supplying newsroom computer systems for television. The company supplies best-of-breed products from reliable and established suppliers, and handles all the customer relationships itself. Techtel has already introduced FORscene to a number of its customers, and the system is now on trial with Techtel.

As part of its strategy, Forbidden has targeted the News market as a major growth area. It already has a productive partnership with AP ENPS to integrate FORscene into their platform. It has also been in discussions with various companies in broadcast news with a view to supplying FORscene for use by journalists and specialist editors for editing and publishing finished news stories for broadcast.

Saifudin Mohd Sani, the general manager of Techtel, said: “I have been following the progress of FORscene with interest. The integration with the AP ENPS system last year allows FORscene to slot into my customers’ existing systems, providing the News market with an extraordinary value added proposition.”

Greg Hirst, Forbidden’s business development director, added: “Techtel’s focus on customer experience and promoting new workflows fits in well with FORscene’s ethos. The recent addition of Media Object Server (MOS) protocol support to our exceptional Cloud editing platform has now opened up the News market in the fast growing economies of S.E. Asia.”

Earlier this month Forbidden said that double digit sales growth during 2011 had enabled it to expand its capability to address new markets and equip itself for larger deals. The company noted that its visible sales pipeline for 2012 already showed a further expansion.
