Fast turnaround edit and publishing
For mission-critical fast turnaround on edited content – Blackbird supports the ingest of live content from files and streams including metadata such as closed captioning data. Customers looking to rapidly monetize and deliver content need to address operational efficiencies and cost effectiveness of the workflow process.
Input streams can be captured using baseband SDI, live IP streams, and growing MXF files using Blackbird Edge technology hosted on-premise or in the cloud to encode and store content in growing mezzanine files and Blackbird proxy video. The mezzanine files are stored and can be used as sources for high resolution publish and conform workflows during or after the event. Blackbird users are able to view video streams as they grow and begin to create logging data and edits in an easy- to-use, cloud-based solution.
Blackbird editing timelines can be published and conformed into multiple formats for delivery to multiple platforms including video transitions and effects. Publishing is handled by the Blackbird Edge technology where content can be retained unless absolutely required elsewhere.
Publishing and distribution from live workflows can be used to conform content back against mezzanine files in multiple file types and codecs. The publishing workflows can be used to send material and metadata to broadcast, social, online and OTT platforms as part of a flexible and efficient platform.
“Faster publishing of live events into social media and better overall use of the video content we produce is vital for us. [Forscene] fills a gap in capabilities that we have been looking to solve.”
