Forbidden Technologies plc will be showcasing Blackbird, the workstation experience in the cloud, at the ABE Show in Australia next week.

A team from Blackbird will be at the event to provide demonstrations and discuss Blackbird's unique benefits for managing video in the cloud. The team will talk delegates through the revolutionary strengths of the Blackbird cloud video platform which significantly enhances the way organisations work with digital video - maximising the value of video assets and increasing monetisation in a rapidly evolving broadcast and digital landscape.

Blackbird is the only cloud-native provider of high precision video production and delivery tools, ensuring a true workstation experience in the cloud. Video professionals and non-professionals alike working with live, non-live and high-volume video content can seamlessly collaborate through hyper-accelerated accessibility, editing and distribution of video content across the world on any device using bandwidth as low as 2Mb per second on any device - Blackbird is so powerful that it enables users to frame-accurately view and edit video content just 6 seconds after live.
