Forbidden Technologies Launches Blackbird Forte In Japan With Top Telecommunications Operator

Forbidden Technologies is announcing a preliminary collaboration with a leading Japanese telecommunications operator through its partnership with Dragon Touch Systems.
Blackbird will be utilised in a specific part of the telco infrastructure to allow its B2B customers to edit and version content in the cloud. The proxy is continually uploaded to the Blackbird cloud and presented as growing files and easily accessible to reviewers and editors for daily collaboration. The team has the added advantage of speed providing viewing and remote capabilities which Blackbird offers without the bandwidth constraints.

This proxy-based cloud workflow offers enormous benefits of time management, collaboration efficiencies and flexibility to producers and broadcasters in the region.

“Our customer required a powerful cloud video platform solution to process high resolution videos, and Forte’s ability to support multiple languages including Japanese, made it the perfect choice,” Daisuke Matsuo, CEO at Dragon Touch Systems says. “I believe Blackbird Forte will serve as a catalyst for change in a traditional Japanese broadcast landscape”.

“We’re delighted to announce this new deal through our partner, Dragon Touch Systems in Kanagawa, Japan. It represents a minor breakthrough in a major market,” Forbidden CEO Ian McDonough says. “The customer has recognised the power of the platform and the ability to have a highly responsive workstation experience while working in the cloud thanks to the Blackbird codec”.
