Cloud-based video editing software developer Forbidden Technologies has signed an agreement with Techtel to distribute its flagship FORscene cloud video platform in South East Asia.

Techtel supplies newsroom computer systems for television, and has already introduced FORscene to a number of its customers. The system is now on trial with Techtel.
News is one of Forbidden’s target growth areas and the company has 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, 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, business development director of Forbidden Technologies, 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 protocol(1) support to our cloud editing platform has opened up the news market in the fast growing economies of South East Asia."
