Forbidden formalises agreement with Atos

 

Forbidden Technologies, the AIM quoted owner and developer of the FORscene cloud-based video editing platform, is pleased to announce that Atos (Pty) Ltd ("Atos"), a systems integrator in South Africa, has entered into a contract with Forbidden.  The formalisation of the contract follows the memorandum of understanding agreed in September 2012.

 

The licence agreement allows Atos to add FORscene to its South African portfolio of solutions and to run its own FORscene Cloud, providing hosting and administration, customer support and consulting on web-enabled workflow solutions to media clients in South Africa and across the African continent, including broadcasters, advertising agencies and advertisers in the African region.

 

The licence provides for a relatively small up-front payment to Forbidden, with the majority of revenue expected to arise from royalties as Atos clients licence the platform from Atos.

 

Up to this point, all FORscene Cloud Servers have been built, run and supported by Forbidden. The licensing of the first full FORscene Cloud Server by a major systems integrator rapidly adds delivery capacity by making FORscene available through a third party with global reach. The installation of the Atos FORscene Cloud Server is planned to begin this month.

 

Stephen Streater, CEO, Forbidden Technologies, said:

 

"Following the memorandum of understanding agreed in September, I am delighted to formalise the agreement with Atos. The deal represents a significant moment in Forbidden's global ambitions and is testament to the strength and international reputation of the FORscene platform as producers become increasingly aware of the benefits of cloud video workflows."
