The cloud-based video specialist unveiled Atos as a client in February, adding FORscene, Forbidden’s editing platform, to Atos's South African portfolio.
It also means Atos can run its own FORscene cloud, providing hosting and administration, customer support and consulting on web-enabled workflow solutions to media clients across Africa, including broadcasters and advertising agencies.
Atos is hosting two launch events this month, one in Johannesburg and the other in Cape Town. Guests will include leaders in the broadcast, educational, governmental and media sectors.
“Television and video are undergoing a technology driven transformation,” said Forbidden chief executive Stephen Streater.
“With its own FORscene cloud, Atos is well placed to lead this growth in Africa.”
Forbidden has attracted a number of big names since the Olympics last year when it partnered with web giant YouTube. It now counts sports video editing heavyweights EVS and Deltatre as clients.
