News Image
US Spanish-language media company Univision has selected cloud native video editing platform Blackbird to help drive large-scale video production efficiencies across its streaming and digital media operations.

The pair have entered a multi-year deal which will see Blackbird deployed for professional-grade, ultra-efficient cloud native video editing and publishing of content across Univision's streaming and digital media operations. The 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, saving significant time and cost.

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 for millions of viewers to enjoy.



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."
