Blackbird has won 'Best Tech Company 2021' at the SportsPro OTT Awards.

The prestigious SportsPro OTT Awards are dedicated to sports focused OTT, streaming and video production - recognising organisations and individuals pushing boundaries and innovation in the fast-paced broadcast media industry. A high calibre panel of 72 judges drawn from international rights holders, broadcasters and technology providers selected winners across 14 categories.

Crowning Blackbird 'Best Tech Company 2021', SportsPro, said: "This award recognises the company that’s driving the growth and disruption of the sports OTT industry via the use of technological innovation. Judges awarded Blackbird the top prize as they felt that the company managed to evolve their user experience to meet customer needs while paying attention to their carbon footprint, and that they have spearheaded the revolution in remote editing. The judges also mentioned how impressive it is that it has been used by such a wide range of sports!"

Blackbird won the award after another strong year of expansion which has seen the Company rapidly build on its 45% revenue growth in 2020. Blackbird has announced a string of new contract wins this year with leading organisations including BT Sport, Univision, Eurovision Sport, EVS and Cheddar News. Strategic technical partnerships have been built with fellow industry leaders and pioneers such as LiveU, Newsbridge, TVU Networks and Streann Media.

In September, Blackbird launched its core video technology licensing solution, 'Powered by Blackbird', to enable advanced cloud native functionality and drive major efficiencies for video companies. The launch came soon after Blackbird announced a 5-year technology licensing deal with a global broadcast company.
