Blackbird Launches Virtual Pre-NAB 2020
Blackbird plc, developer and seller of the cloud video editing platform, Blackbird, today launched its virtual pre-NAB 2020 focused on enabling live or file-based remote video editing for enterprises.
Enterprises responding to the global threat of coronavirus that need to enable remote or home editing for all or part of their content creation teams are invited to book an online demonstration of Blackbird on either March 25 or 26. There will also be a selection of group masterclasses available.
Blackbird can enable highly responsive and fully featured remote editing for live and file-based content and can be used with a standard laptop. Built for the cloud, Blackbird says it is the only professional video editor in a browser. Video production staff can work with Blackbird from home or any other location with all the professional standard editing tools they need — even on low bandwidth.
Blackbird is infinitely scalable and powers significant productivity and efficiency benefits for any enterprise organization working with video. It can be used on-premise or as part of a hybrid workflow. Blackbird also integrates with any of the major public clouds — Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud Platform.
Providing fast access to video content, Blackbird enables production teams to work collaboratively — easily and rapidly creating clips and highlights for multiple devices and platforms including web, broadcast, OTT and social.
Blackbird drives awareness, reach and monetization for brands in the sports, news, entertainment and enterprise sectors. Customers include IMG, Deltatre, Peloton, TownNews, Eleven Sports, A+E Networks and the U.S Department of State.
Blackbird CEO, Ian McDonough, said: “The last few weeks has seen the world change very quickly in response to threat of Covid-19. It is clear that many organizations are planning for home or remote working. In the video content creation space, Blackbird provides a highly responsive, fully featured, easy to implement ‘out of the box’ solution.
“Our virtual pre-NAB focusing on enabling remote video editing is an agile way for us to respond to this immediate need and to support and provide guidance to organizations planning these workflows for the first time.”
