Univision Chooses Blackbird To Drive Streaming Video Production Efficiencies
Univision has entered into a multi-year deal to deploy the cloud native video editing platform Blackbird to drive large-scale video production efficiencies across its streaming and digital media operations.
Blackbird was selected by Univision for professional-grade, ultra-efficient cloud native video editing and publishing of content across its streaming and digital media operations. Univision’s multi-site production team will use browser-based Blackbird both remotely and in the office to rapidly reversion large volumes of partner content in the cloud — removing the need to upload and download files.
Deployed within Univision’s Google Cloud Platform infrastructure, editors can seamlessly publish short, medium and long form content to multiple digital end points including social, web, over the top (OTT) and video on demand (VOD) platforms.
Blackbird CEO Ian McDonough, said: “We’re simply thrilled to add Univision, another large and influential media company, to Blackbird’s growing U.S. based client list. Our technology will allow the company to reversion, enrich and publish content across its wide range of genres and to its many digital, streaming and broadcast platforms. We are very much looking forward to working with their team.”
