Blackbird Signs Up 14 Post-Production Facilities to Its New Blackbird Productions Partnership Program

Blackbird plc announced that it has signed up 14 post-production facilities to its new Blackbird Productions Partnership Program in the last five months. Launched in January 2019, BP3 enables leading post-production facilities to offer the Blackbird cloud video platform to media production companies internationally. The BP3 programme is in line with Blackbird's strategy of building a commercial model whereby BP3 partners can sell to multiple partners rather than Blackbird selling directly. Hundreds of TV programmes utilise Blackbird in their video production workflows. Popular hits such as Gogglebox, Hunted, Gold Rush and Come Dine With Me use Blackbird to view, edit and log content during the production process each season. Easy to learn and use, Blackbird is a web-based platform agnostic, cloud-native application that requires no hardware investment. Production teams can access and edit video content via any browser using any device from anywhere in the world for easy, collaborative working. Blackbird's unique flexibility delivers significant cost-savings to any company working with video. Meeting Blackbird's high levels of product training and service requirements, BP3 partners are carefully selected. The 14 industry leading post facilities already signed up to BP3 include Clear Cut Pictures, Evolutions, Halo, True North, MSV Post and ITV. As well as being widely used in the production sector, Blackbird has a growing global user base across multiple sectors including sports, esports and news - customers include MSG Networks, IMG, Deltatre, NRL, Peloton, Gfinity and TownNews.
