Streann Media, an over-the-top (OTT) streaming platform, has teamed up with Blackbird, a cloud native video editing and publishing platform, to bring content providers a more efficient way to produce live events remotely.
Gio Punzo, CEO of Streann Media, said, “Remote production is booming, and we are thrilled to join forces with Blackbird, as this partnership will bring clients the state-of-the-art live streaming tools they need to take their content creation strategy to a whole new level.”
According to the companies, content providers will be able to produce live events with the best tools using the combined technology of Streann and Blackbird, thereby speeding up the production process and engaging viewers with enriched live and video on-demand (VoD) content. The integration delivers a “very powerful” combined solution for successful OTT deployments, especially if live streaming is in play.
Specifically, Streann Media and Blackbird aim to enable production teams to send reliable, high-quality video from anywhere as well as remotely edit, enrich and publish their live and VoD content to any destination, ensuring a consistent experience for the end-user.
Established in 2014, Streann Media has already delivered several deployments for global sports events, while Blackbird offers an advanced suite of cloud-native computing applications for video, all underpinned by the company’s codec.
