Blackbird enables secure, ultra-fast, frame-accurate editing and distribution of video content by anyone, anytime, anywhere on web and mobile devices using bandwidth as low as 2Mb per second. Delivering a true incredibly responsive workstation-like experience in the cloud, Blackbird has worked on over 8m hours of professional video to date. This has been across multiple sectors globally including news, sports, eSports, events and broadcast post-production.
Since the start of the year, Forbidden Technologies plc has announced Blackbird contracts and partnerships with leading technology and media companies including TownNews.com, Veritone, Leaning Technologies, Our House Media, Dragon Touch Systems, Middlechild, Fanview, ESP Gaming, and Von Johnson Associates.
Together with the Mac® version of the Blackbird Edge, announced this week, the Blackbird proxy can also be created remotely on something as widely available as an Apple® laptop which is then immediately available in the cloud to be edited, enriched or published.
Forbidden Technologies will be demonstrating Blackbird at IBC 2018 (Hall 1, C27) from 14 -18 September. For more information visit: www.blackbird.video/ibc
