Cloud video platform Blackbird has signed 14 post-production facilities to its new Blackbird Productions Partnership Program (BP3) in five months.
Launched in January 2019, BP3 enables 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, such as Gogglebox, Hunted, Gold Rush and Come Dine With Me, to view, edit and log content during the production process.
The 14 industry leading post facilities already signed up to BP3 include Clear Cut Pictures, Evolutions, Halo, True North, MSV Post and ITV.
“We referred to this new model in our annual report and are really pleased that the post-production market has quickly adapted to reselling Blackbird as a service on our behalf,” said Ian McDonough, CEO of Blackbird.
“This is a win-win-win solution where we provide our patented Blackbird platform, together with high-end one-to-one training to post houses and they in turn build a revenue line through Blackbird.
“Our end customers have a wide and growing choice of where to go to use Blackbird and know they will get a world class and standardised service.”
Production teams can access and edit video content via any browser using any device from anywhere in the world for easy, collaborative working.
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.
