We continue our Great Run with FilmNova and Blackbird

Announcement / January 25th, 2019

It’s a warm welcome back to FilmNova and the Great Run Series for a second year of cloud content delivery using Blackbird’s cutting-edge video editing system.

Having been successfully deployed across three Great events in 2018, fans will once again be enjoying clips and highlights of their favourite stars delivered at high speed direct to their digital and social media platforms by harnessing the power of the cloud.

Following a successful start at the Great Stirling Cross Country in January, the technology will be on the starting line again for the Great Manchester Run in May and the world’s biggest half-marathon, The Great North Run, in September.

Using Blackbird’s unique codec and technology enables the FilmNova team to cut video clips and highlights on site at the outside broadcast using minimal infrastructure, publishing directly to a range of digital platforms despite the main world feed being delivered to and recorded back in London.

The result was the ability to create a fast-turnaround clips such as this and Great Run’s comprehensive YouTube highlights.
