Blackbird To Receive A Queen's Award

News Image
Blackbird has announced that Her Majesty The Queen has approved the Prime Minister's recommendation that the Company should receive a Queen's Award for Enterprise for International Trade 2022.

The Company's overseas sales have grown by 314% over three years and now account for over 70% of total sales. Revenues are growing fastest in North America where the Company has contracts with organizations including the National Hockey League (NHL), A+E Networks, Univision and the US State Department. North America is the world leader in media technology trends and the adoption of cloud technologies and so it is particularly impressive that an innovative UK technology company is seen to be breaking into the American market. The Company has also won multiple high profile contracts across Europe, the Middle East and Oceania including BT, Sky News Arabia, Eurovision Sport and the National Rugby League (NRL).

Blackbird provides a fast, powerful professional cloud video editing and publishing platform. Powering scalable, collaborative production, Blackbird enables instant access to video content for the easy creation of clips, highlights and long form content for rapid content distribution. Proven to reduce carbon emissions by up to 91% compared to traditional video editing workflows, Blackbird also reduces infrastructure costs by up to 75% due to its highly efficient cloud native architecture.

Blackbird CEO, Ian McDonough, said: "We are incredibly honoured to be the winner of a coveted Queen’s Award for Enterprise. The global technology industry is generally assumed to be the preserve of large US companies and so for a British challenger brand to break into the US media market, with customers such as the NHL, Cheddar News, Univision and the US State Department amongst others, is something we are very proud of at Blackbird. Our patented technology that dramatically improves speed, cost efficiency and user experience in the production process is proving a winning formula where there is pressure on these areas from all sides. The technology has also been proven to be compellingly sustainable when measured alongside our competitors’ carbon footprints."
