The summit attempt will take place in May 2006 coinciding with the 30th anniversary of the first Army Mountaineering Associations summit of Everest. Forbiddens FORscene post production tool has been chosen to provide mobile updates of the expedition. Viewers can catch up with the highs and lows of the summit attempt by downloading a branded player from the expedition website to their mobile handset, and will get a text message alert whenever another video is ready for download.
This project with the British Army further demonstrates the versatility of Forbiddens FORscene platform for mobile publishing, said Stephen Streater CEO of Forbidden Technologies This expedition is an amazing feat for the army, and publishing video updates onto peoples mobile phones is a great way to publicise the event. In addition to the climb, the teams will also be raising money for charity and assisting medical teams in researching cures into cystic fibrosis and the affects of altitude on the human body.
