Forbidden Supplies Forscene Cloud-Editing Package for Coverage of the Toronto International Film Festival

LONDON — Oct. 28, 2014 — Forbidden Technologies plc (AIM: FBT), the AIM-quoted owner and developer of the market-leading cloud video platform Forscene, announced that it sponsored entertainment journalist Bonnie Laufer’s coverage of the renowned Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in September, which ran on U.S. entertainment Web portal The Seven Sees. Forbidden provided a turnkey cloud editing package, including access to Forscene and a Forscene server, which allowed Laufer to collaborate with editors at the headquarters of her entertainment news company, The Smart Entertainment Group, and make the finished content available to The Seven Sees.

“It was an absolute pleasure using Forscene to edit the interviews I conducted during TIFF. It was quick and efficient, and made the process easy, especially when I had interviews that used more than one camera,” said Laufer, who is executive producer at The Smart Entertainment Group and has covered TIFF for 25 years. “Having the system and server on hand to upload the interviews to my colleagues at The Seven Sees in Los Angeles was undeniably efficient and a complete lifesaver. There is no question in my mind that I will be using Forscene to edit all of my interviews from now on.”

Laufer conducted 80 celebrity interviews at TIFF and used Forscene to make the interview footage immediately available to editors at Smart Entertainment headquarters in Toronto and The Seven Sees in Los Angeles, thousands of miles away. A Forscene server at Smart Entertainment automatically ingested the TIFF interviews into predetermined folders in the Forscene cloud based on watch folders that were set up on the media storage system. Editors at Smart Entertainment and The Seven Sees could then access the media, edit the interviews, integrate graphic elements, and then make the finished packages available for review.

Once approved, the finished segments were then published directly from the Forscene server to The Seven Sees website using the original high-resolution footage stored in the Forscene cloud.

“Forscene is an amazing technology for Web streaming portals like ours that need to acquire and edit media originating anywhere in the world,” said Jonathan Ratliff, owner and editor-in-chief of The Seven Sees, which gets about 500,000 visitors per month. “The speed of acquisition and creative control it offers during the editing process is incredible. During TIFF we had almost instant access to the media acquired in Toronto so that it could be utilized in Los Angeles. The back end of publishing the content was just a drag and drop away, where we could create MPEG streams to publish to our streaming site. We are excited about the future of creative possibilities in the Forscene cloud.”

“Bonnie Laufer is a well-respected journalist in her field and has conducted thousands of celebrity interviews throughout her career,” said Greg Hirst, business development director and president of the U.S. office for Forbidden Technologies plc. “Supporting her in her coverage of such a high-profile event as TIFF exposed a new audience to Forscene and demonstrated its great benefit when generating content for Web portals, which — perhaps more than any other media outlet — are expected to run up-to-the-minute content.”

Christie Launches First National Experiential Network for Cinema Lobbies

Christie® today announced the launch of its new media initiative, Christie Experiential Networks® (CEN). Based on the theme “From the Street to the Screens™,” the network features unique digital destinations such as the Christie double-sided digital standee, the experiential video wall and the hero screen; some of which will be introduced during ShowEast, Oct. 27-30, in Hollywood, Florida.

“Christie was at the forefront leading the conversion of film to digital projection, and we are today the first to deploy a refined experiential strategy that will transform the way exhibitors, brands, agencies and studios connect with moviegoers across the country,” said Kevin Romano, senior director, Global Media, at Christie. “From projection mapping to mobile, to augmented reality and gesture interactions, we are committed to delivering superior, content-driven experiences for the cinema industry.”

New Role, New Business Model
Christie Experiential Networks (CEN) adds a new layer to how Christie brings value to the cinema industry. With this new initiative, Christie becomes a network operator that supplies technologies and digital content to exhibitors’ lobbies. Christie provides standard track installations at no cost to the exhibitor and can also provide personalized concepts for a competitive investment. CEN’s team of media specialists will manage advertising sales, in a revenue-share model with the exhibitors.

Experiential, Mass Media Style
From a brand and studio perspective, Christie’s new CEN provides access to a large-scale network of refined, multi-platform digital experiences for the consumer. Technologies and content strategy will, for example, enable studios to transform a trailer into a 4K gesture experience; or brands to create an interactive experience from an app, such as a 30-second ad or a static poster. Then the experience can be distributed on a national scale in top designated market areas. A variety of experience options are available for brands and studios.

More Entertainment Value Means More Guest Engagement, and More Revenues

CEN’s mission is to create new revenue streams for exhibitors, deliver refined media opportunities for brands and studios, and offer high-impact digital experiences for the consumer. Denys Lavigne, senior director, Experience Strategy and Creative Services, at Christie: “It is time that exhibitor lobby spaces become a legitimate part of the cinema experience and growth strategy for the industry. Experiential is growing everywhere; brands and studios are embracing it, and consumers expect it. With similar experiential projects that we’ve created for other industries, we observed that when customers are engaged there is more dwell time, which means higher brand impact, and a better overall experience.”

The Christie Experiential Networks programming will also integrate promotional elements such as discounts, special promotions and giveaways. Romano added, “Guests who interact with the digital displays will gain a direct and immediate benefit that makes their experience that much better.” These opportunities extend to studios, product marketers, advertisers, and exhibitors, who will be showcased on the new network as well as on the legacy systems Christie plans to integrate as one high-impact digital media within the exhibitor environment.

From the Street to the ScreensTM – a 360-Degree Perspective

Christie is delivering this new media initiative as part of its 360-degree digital solution capabilities. Sean James, vice president, Global Professional Services, at Christie, said “The industry might not be fully aware but Christie has developed a solid track record over the past five years in delivering next generation digital signage applications for our clients and partners. Our recent acquisition of Arsenal Media reinforced our unique position as a total solutions provider from strategy, hardware and software, to content, enterprise-level network operations center, maintenance and ongoing technical support. Now, with the addition of our media sales services, headed by Kevin Romano who has played a key role in the development of brand advertising in cinema, we feel we have built the ideal team to accompany the cinema industry in this next phase of innovation and growth.”

In this context, Mr. Lavigne will share his knowledge of digital planning, content and technology on the ‘Monetizing Your Digital Investment-New Technologies to Serve the Exhibition Community’ panel, scheduled for Tuesday, October 28, 8.30 a.m. – 9.30 a.m.

“We can’t think of any organization more worthy of our support than SMPTE,” said Kunihiko Miyagi, director, Professional AV Business Unit, Imaging Network Business Division in Panasonic Corporation’s AVC Networks Company. “The ongoing role the Society plays in advancing standards and technical education for our industry is absolutely critical to our success, and to that of all SMPTE members. Panasonic salutes SMPTE as it enters its second century of advocacy and advancement for the field of moving imagery.”

“SMPTE has made a remarkable and long-standing commitment to education and to the development of standards that support ever-greater creative and technical achievements in the field of motion imaging and sound,” said Pat Griffis, executive director of technology strategy, Office of the CTO, Dolby Laboratories. “The Society’s centennial celebration is an ideal opportunity to recognize this work and its enormous influence on our industry.”

The SMPTE Centennial Campaign has been established in recognition of the Society’s 100-year anniversary in 2016. The campaign is led by an advisory committee consisting of Wendy Aylsworth and Chuck Dages (retired) of Warner Bros.; Peter Fannon of Panasonic; Richard Friedel of Fox; Charles Jablonski of SMPTE; Peter Ludé of RealD; William Miller of Miltag Media Technology; Chuck Pagano (retired) of ESPN; Bob Ross of CBS; and Larry Thorpe of Canon.

“Without question, SMPTE’s next hundred years will be very different from the first. As our industry evolves, new developments are challenging every aspect of the media workflow — from technology tools to business models,” said Barbara Lange, executive director of SMPTE. “With their generous gifts, The Walt Disney Company, Panasonic, and Dolby Laboratories are providing a tremendous boost to the Society’s ongoing expansion and evolution across our three pillars of activity: standards development, membership development, and education programs.”

The Next Century Fund will support specific SMPTE standards activities that speed the development, adoption, use, and understanding of new industry standards, as well as creating tools such as a repository for test materials that are crucial for certifying new IP-based workflows. In the area of membership development, SMPTE’s goals include international Section expansion as well as improving programming and networking for students. In education, the Society will focus on creating educational programs that support rapidly changing industry needs; establishing regular conference events throughout the world; and developing and deploying educational programs that serve all levels of membership.

As well, Christie backs all of its visual and audio solutions with a technical support team whose industry expertise is unsurpassed, ensuring that moviegoers enjoy the ultimate immersive experience.”
