NAB 2018: Blackbird Forte Selected By Premier US Esports Content Creation Company

At NAB 2018, Forbidden Technologies announces that a premier, Las Vegas-based, competitive Esports content creation company has selected the Blackbird Forte cloud video platform for live and post-event edit and production.

High profile live eSports events will be captured to the Blackbird cloud for rapid turnaround into highlights packages for delivery to consumers all over the world through web and social media platforms. Content can be further enriched within the Blackbird platform in order to maximise the value of the pivotal moments within events for future replay and redistribution.

“We’re delighted to be working with our first US customer in the Esports sector,” says Ian McDonough, CEO Forbidden Technologies. “Blackbird is a key part of this customer’s technical infrastructure and the Blackbird codec is an ideal solution for this high growth and demanding sector due to its ability to operate at 60 frames per second. Strategically the sector’s growth and its need for high quality video makes Esports a hugely exciting market for Blackbird. Blackbird gives eSports organizers, game studios and rights holders a game changing solution to access and monetise their valuable sports content beyond the live stream.”
