Barbri Selects Blackbird For Video Editing In The Cloud

News Image
Forbidden Technologies has announced that Barbri has chosen Blackbird for video editing in the cloud, with content storage and processing provided by Microsoft Azure.

Barbri will use Blackbird Edge to rapidly push all of its online training videos into the Azure cloud where its media production team can seamlessly edit and add graphics to them using Blackbird Forte. Once finished, the videos will be delivered back to Barbri's Learning Management System for access by students through publishing to Barbri’s Content Delivery Network (CDN).

Blackbird will provide Barbri with a highly effective way of using Azure for content storage and processing without the need for expensive on-premise equipment and infrastructure. This highly scalable and flexible combination of Blackbird and Microsoft Azure provides a very efficient workflow that enables the production of video content anywhere.

Blackbird enables secure, lightning-fast, frame-accurate editing and distribution of video content in the cloud by anyone, anytime, anywhere on any device using bandwidth as low as 2Mb per second.

Leading sports broadcast services company, Deltatre, is also an extensive user of Blackbird through Microsoft Azure. The company uses the technology to extend its OTT offering of editing services for live and non-live on-demand content for a wide range of sports including American Football, athletics, golf, rugby and cycling.
