EVS and Blackbird have announced a partnership which is aimed at deployments for global sporting events.
EVS will use Blackbird as part of its workflow on major sports events – including two “in the near future”.
Blackbird is a cloud-native video editing and publishing platform, providing rapid access to video content for the easy creation of clips, highlights and long form content to multiple devices and platforms. It described itself as an “ultra-green technology”, that supports the sustainability goals of the media production industry.
Speaking about the partnership, EVS chief marketing officer, Nicolas Bourdon, said: “As a certified partner within our Technology Partner Program, Blackbird is helping EVS to expand its live and near-live content management and distribution offering with the integration of a flexible infrastructure and future-proof cloud-based video editing that meets the challenging demands of the world’s most prestigious sporting events.”
Blackbird CEO, Ian McDonough, added: “It’s a real thrill for us to announce this partnership with EVS who are synonymous with the production of the world’s most emotive and high value sports content as well as global news and market leading entertainment shows. To announce this together with a deployment on two of the greatest international sporting events taking place in the near future is simply fantastic. It highlights not only the attributes of the Blackbird technology but also the confidence that EVS has in our team to deliver on the biggest of stages.”
