Forbidden Technologies (LON:FBT), the developer of the market leading Cloud-based video platform FORscene, reported this morning that Manchester-based post-production company that Sumners has chosen to provide FORscene as its logging and rough cut editing platform.

Sumners’ ethos is to provide focused client services and a professional team of creative talent for a wide range of genres within television and film. Through nearly 20 years of operation the company has established a reputation for providing a high quality service to a broad range of media clients including all the major UK broadcasters and associated production companies.

As part of the arrangement, Sumners has installed a FORscene Load Linux box. Using FORscene’s watch folder technology, the box compresses all the source video for each production and uploads it to the FORscene Cloud. FORscene is being offered by Sumners and used as a logging, rough cut editing and review / approval system by its clients.

Last month the Forbidden announced that post-production company Platform Post had also chosen to provide FORscene as its logging, rough cut editing and review / approval platform. Forbidden's broadcast post sales have been rising rapidly: revenue in the six months to 30 June 2011 rose by 94%, driven largely by the adoption of FORscene by Post Houses. Forbidden said the adoption of FORscene by Sumners was building on the accelerating uptake of the FORscene platform and the confidence the industry has in the product.

Jason Cowan, account manager at Forbidden, said: “Although Sumners has used FORscene in the past on Children’s Hospital we are pleased they have now taken a further step and purchased a FORscene system. As an integrated part of the Sumners post production workflow, FORscene will now be accessible to all Sumners clients whenever they need it and wherever they may be.”
