Blackbird Ascent and Forte
Blackbird Audio Processing
Blackbird now supports workflows with split audio channels from source right to output. This enhancement to the audio capabilities permits for customers with requirements for multi-channel audio to output 8 channel audio and enables downstream delivery platforms and players to select relevant audio sources for playback. Additional audio level “snapping” has been built into Blackbird Forte to permit for fast level adjustment on live content.
Blackbird Avid Master Clip workflows
Blackbird has enhanced workflows for prelinking Avid Master clips that have been ingested into Avid media file storage. This includes the ability to store Avid Master clip metadata and extends the support for handoff to this editing solution. Additional functionality includes increased support for custom metadata properties in Avid Media Composer along with advanced Color Space metadata such as S-Log. AAF sequences can now be sent including this Master clip or a relinkable sequence to Avid Media Composer as well as Adobe Premiere. Full workflow information on these new capabilities please contact support for more information.
