Blackbird PLC (LON:BIRD) said its cloud-based video editing platform is being used by 18 more US TV stations for digital news production following TownNews’ latest deployment.

The AIM-quoted company said 69 US TV stations across 35 states now use Blackbird remotely to access, edit and publish news content rapidly to social and web platforms.

“Blackbird’s high-quality, frame-accurate cloud editing software gives our broadcast customers a huge competitive advantage,” said Derek Gebler, vice president of Broadcast and Video for TownNews.

With an estimated 43% of US adults sourcing their news from websites and social media, millions of viewers in the US now consume content through the Blackbird and TownNews’ Field59 VMS platform, Blackbird said.
