Cloud video platform producer Blackbird has been chosen by live streaming provider Corrivium for the clipping and publishing of Global Rapid Rugby highlights.

global rapid rugby 4july2020Rapid Rugby is a new international rugby union competition featuring six professional teams from Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Singapore. It is designed to offer a new take on the sport, hosting shorter games to encourage fast-paced and high-scoring matches.

Through the co-operation Corrivium has with Blackbird running on Amazon Web Services, the company is able to receive the footage directly from Rapid Rugby’s content providers then stream live to audiences around the world while allowing Rapid Rugby’s digital team to use Blackbird to rapidly clip, edit and publish highlights during live matches. Rapid Rugby’s global fanbase can then view match highlights on, Facebook and YouTube.

“Upon understanding Rapid Rugby’s requirement of needing to quickly publish clips to their site as well as multiple social channels, we immediately knew that Blackbird was the right choice,” explained Corrivium founder Steve Jones.

“Blackbird’s ability to allow the user to easily edit and publish clips, from a standard laptop whilst being on a standard internet connection is exactly what was needed. The Rapid Rugby digital team can edit from the match and publish to their site and social channels while the match is live and not have to worry about long video render times or slow file uploads.”

Ian McDonough, CEO of Blackbird, added: “Corrivium is taking an innovative approach on how to provide bespoke streaming workflows for its clients. We are delighted to be working with Corrivium to help provide such solutions with yet another sports organisation.”
Blackbird was also recently  selected by Australia's NRL for clipping and publishing of match highlights.
