Blackbird is making its core video technology available to license for the first time to enable advanced cloud native functionality and drive major efficiencies for video companies.
Powered by Blackbird will allow companies to build their own cloud native video platforms including frame accurate, renderless editing in a browser with bandwidth from just 2 Mb/s, said the company.
Blackbird added the new licenses are the ideal path for traditional video companies migrating their on premise infrastructure to the cloud, video companies moving from capex to SaaS business models and video companies seeking efficiency, speed and improved user experiences.
Blackbird plc’s CEO, Ian McDonough, said: “This is a step change in the Blackbird story and the evolution of video in the cloud. The world increasingly needs efficient and workable technology as migration to the cloud accelerates and global video production skyrockets.
“Blackbird’s proven and patented technology enables advanced editing and manipulation in the cloud whilst reducing infrastructure costs by up to 75 per cent versus traditional cloud based platforms. Vitally, as the planet moves to net zero carbon, Blackbird is able to operate at less than 10 per cent of the carbon footprint of its competitors. Those companies who license ‘Powered by Blackbird’ will realise these efficiency savings, rapidly improve functionality, move to efficient cloud native workflows and reap the benefits of being truly SaaS.”
