By integrating MOOV’s technology into the Blackbird platform, users will be able to add a variety of broadcast-quality graphics to their video content.

Blackbird and MOOV will be showcasing their combined solution at IBC (Sept. 13-17, RAI Amsterdam). Demonstrations will focus on live sports content with the platform being the fastest and most efficient on the market for delivering broadcast quality clips and highlights to fans.
