FileCatalyst partners with Forbidden to accelerate file transfer within cloud based Forscene

August 28, 2014—Unlimi-Tech Software, Inc., a pioneer in managed file transfers and the creator of FileCatalyst, a world leading accelerated file transfer solution, is pleased to announce an embedded partner agreement with Forbidden, developer of the market-leading cloud-based video post-production platform FORscene.

 FileCatalyst and Forbidden LogosFounded in 1998 and based in London, England, Forbidden develops and markets the powerful cloud video platform, Forscene, which is used to post-produce video content for broadcast, web and mobile distribution. Forscene, Forbidden's flagship product, is the world's most advanced cloud editing system. Simple enough for producers and directors, yet responsive enough for editors, Forscene enables professionals to collaborate on video projects anytime, anywhere. The platform supports one of the world’s most advanced browser-based and mobile applications and provides media makers of all kinds the ability to make real-time stories that today’s global audiences demand, faster and easier than ever. Adding further efficiencies to Forscene is the FileCatalyst integration, which allows for large format media files to be transferred at blazing speeds of up to 10 Gbps. FileCatalyst’s UDP-based accelerated file transfer technology eliminates file transfer bottlenecks commonly experienced when trying to move media files, which have substantially grown in size with the increasing adoption of HD and 4K resolutions. FileCatalyst’s extensive suite of APIs allows Forscene to be able to control the flow of data and call other third party applications once the files have been received.

“We pride ourselves in developing tools to solve cloud challenges met by media and entertainment professionals” said Jason Cowan, Commercial Manager at Forbidden. “Integrating with FileCatalyst allows us to incorporate fast file transfers with the cloud while still maintaining our values and continuing to provide industry leading solutions.”

“Cloud is having a major effect on the media and broadcasting industry,” said Unlimi-Tech’s Vice President of Business Development, Alan Atkinson. “Accelerating secure and reliable file transfer in this space is more important than ever before. We’re thrilled to partner with a company on the leading edge of this technology and are excited about the future.”
