Forbidden Technologies announced the first JavaScript implementation of its core cloud Video Library ‘VidLib’ on Monday, used as part of the Forscene platform.

The AIM-traded company said its first video player used Java to run on ‘out of the box’ computers, enabling products to work immediately without the requirement for installation or configuration.

It said that increasingly, Java's browser role was fulfilled by JavaScript, which is widely available on PCs, Macs and mobile devices.

“Our technology enables flexibility and innovation,” said Forbidden Technologies’ head of research and development Stephen Streater.

“The Blackbird Player has led almost immediately to the Blackbird Clipper, with both benefiting from integration with Forbidden's unrivalled Forscene video platform.”

Forbidden said VidLib - the core of its Java-based Forscene cloud video editor - downloads, renders and plays back edits in real time during editing.

As an enabling standard, JavaScript enabled wide-ranging capabilities, the board explained, with VidLib now being converted to run in JavaScript, allowing it to benefit from JavaScript's flexibility, and become more widely available to a number of different devices and operating systems.

Forbidden said its first VidLib application was a video player, called the Blackbird Player.

The board said it had a number of strong features including Forbidden's patented Video Waveform navigation system, high performance jog and shuttle, and playback at multiple speeds.

It said the Player could also render and play Forscene edits in real time.

Forbidden said its second JavaScript VidLib application was a frame accurate clipping tool.

Benefiting from all the features of the Blackbird Player, the board said the Blackbird Clipper enabled frame-accurate clipping of shots from live or pre-recorded videos.

Clips could be saved for later use, or published using the Forscene Platform's publishing infrastructure.

Beta versions of the Player and Clipper were now available to Forscene beta testers.

“I am delighted with these additions to Forscene's video platform,” said Forbidden chairman David Main.

“These JavaScript applications increase the value of our remote and high-speed proxy based cloud capabilities, which are essential for the rapidly changing video market.”
