Version 2.0 of Forbidden’s Blackbird video editing codec has been released. Blackbird 2 gives lower datarates in FORscene editing and web publishing. The datarate at full frame rate for the Freeview channels BBC News 24 and Sky News is reduced to 1.0Mb/s from 1.6Mb/s, with lower frame rates for slower connections.
Blackbird is best-of-breed
