Blackbird obtains Amazon Web Services Technology Partner status

Blackbird plc, the company behind cloud native video editing platform Blackbird, has recently announced that has achieved Amazon Web Services Technology Partner status and completed the Foundational Technical Review (FTR) of Blackbird Edge to accelerate AWS engagement.

The AWS FTR enables AWS Partners to identify and remediate risks in their products or solutions. The FTR is led by an AWS Partner Solutions Architect (PSA) who reviews AWS Partner products and solutions against a specific set of requirements based around security, reliability and operation.

As an AWS Technology Partner, Blackbird offers creating video at scale and access to cloud content production. That enables remote production and reduces carbon emissions by up to 91%.

Blackbird plc CEO, Ian McDonough, said: “We are very happy to have achieved the AWS Foundational Technical Review. Replicating and enhancing the genre-defining Blackbird cloud video experience in a public cloud has been a stated ambition of ours for some time. AWS have been very supportive and enabled us to get to this first significant step. This milestone is significant as fast-tracked progress through the AWS Partner Network will allow us to scale much more flexibly for our customers which is key, whilst opening up the addressable market for Blackbird significantly.”
