Blackbird partners with Univision to drive large-scale streaming video production efficiencies

Univision, a leading Spanish-language media and content company based in the US, has entered into a multi-year deal to deploy Blackbird to drive large-scale video production efficiencies across its streaming and digital media operations.

Univision’s multi-site production team will use browser-based Blackbird both remotely and in the office to rapidly reversion large volumes of partner content in the cloud – removing the need to upload and download files, saving time and cost.

Deployed within Univision’s Google Cloud Platform infrastructure, editors can publish short-, medium- and long-form content to multiple digital end points including social, web, OTT and VOD platforms for viewers to enjoy.

Blackbird CEO Ian McDonough said: “We’re simply thrilled to add Univision, another large and influential media company, to Blackbird’s growing US-based client list. Our technology will allow the company to reversion, enrich and publish content across its wide range of genres and to its many digital, streaming and broadcast platforms. We are very much looking forward to working with their team.”

Blackbird customers include Tata Communications, EVS, BT, IMG, Deltatre, Sky News Arabia, A+E Networks, NHL, Eleven Sports, Riot Games and 69 local US news stations with TownNews.
