Esports giant Riot Games has selected Blackbird for remote fast-turnaround video production.

The company’s video production team will use Blackbird’s Cloud video editing platform remotely to frame-accurately edit video content from its live streamed esports tournaments and events.

Once created, the content will be published to Riot’s social channels including Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Twitch.

Riot Games Chief Operating Officer, Scott Gelb, said: “Recent months have introduced unprecedented challenges in video production but Blackbird has helped us meet these obstacles head on. With Blackbird as a partner, we’re delivering the content fans deserve while prioritising employee health and safety. Blackbird has best-in-class video technology and will allow our team to turn around high quality content quickly and easily in our current remote work environment.”

Blackbird CEO, Ian McDonough, added: “Riot Games are world leaders in so many ways and we are delighted that they have chosen Blackbird. Esports is a hugely exciting growth sector and its fans demand exacting standards, high resolution and incredible accuracy in the edit and publish process. Blackbird is unique in being able to offer this in a browser based remote solution.”
