Blackbird plc is eyeing a general release for its creator SaaS product.

The listed cloud video editing platform, eighth on our MediaTech 50 ranking last year, reported positive results from the early access testing phase of elevate.io.

It says the end-to-end video creation tool – accessible from a web browser and featuring multi-player collaborative functionality – will be widely available by the end of Q1 2024.

elevate.io’s website went live yesterday. Potential users can join the waitlist from the site.

We announced in September that we would release elevate.io by the end of Q1 2024,” said chief product officer Sumit Rai. 

“Early access feedback has been fantastic, and we are excited to be opening up to a wider audience in the coming weeks. 

“We have a paradigm shifting vision for elevate.io and it will continue to evolve after launch with regular updates and improvements.”
