Forbidden Technologies, the developer of cloud-based video platform FORscene, has opened its first office in North America.

The Burbank, California base was chosen to be close to the region’s “thriving post production community”.

“We have seen a dramatic increase in FORscene inquiries and demo requests from media operations in the US with no sign of slowing, so it was critically important for us to establish a permanent presence in North America,” said Greg Hirst, business development director, Forbidden Technologies.

“Being in the heart of Hollywood means we’re able to offer those customers local sales and support, while at the same time providing more direct service to customers throughout North America.”
