Blackbird To Showcase Fast Cloud Video Editing At NAB 2022

News Image
Blackbird will be showcasing fast, efficient and sustainable cloud video editing on Microsoft’s booth at NAB 2022.

Browser-based Blackbird is a fast, professional cloud video editing and publishing platform. Enabling scalable, collaborative production, Blackbird provides instant access to video content for the easy creation of clips, highlights and long form content for rapid content publishing. 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 Edge can be deployed on the Microsoft Azure public cloud platform in just minutes. Blackbird supports the use of Azure Blob Storage of video for ingest and publishing which enables transparency of operation between traditional and cloud enabled workflows for high quality content creation and delivery to any device. In addition to this, Blackbird is integrated with Azure Media Services for stream handling and VOD encoding of edits. A growing number of organizations use Blackbird on Azure for efficient, sustainable video editing and publishing including Deltatre and the National Rugby League (NRL).

Blackbird CEO, Ian McDonough, said: "We are incredibly excited to be working with Microsoft on the industry’s first major live show for over 2 years. In the time that has elapsed, seismic changes have happened across our industry which we have been there to help our customers through. What has remained constant are the values the two companies share when it comes to innovation, quality and sustainability. In February, Blackbird and Microsoft held a webinar where the benefits of carbon reduction were explained as not only being good for the planet but also, in times of rising energy costs especially, in other ways too. We look forward to building a lasting relationship with Microsoft where we have multiple touch points in media, entertainment and the cloud."

Simon Crownshaw, Worldwide Strategy Director, Media and Entertainment, Microsoft added: "Microsoft is dedicated to working with partners and helping customers transform. Blackbird is a leader in the cloud video production space, and we share their commitment to delivering highly efficient and sustainable technology to the media sector. We look forward to working closely with their team at NAB and beyond."

Blackbird will be exhibiting on the Microsoft booth (#W3017) and its own booth (#W2514) at NAB 2022 from 23 – 27 April.
