That's pretty juicy too- an encouraging buy. It is good to have an endorsement from the US Dept ofState. The commercial team now in place has plenty to target and customer examples for good reference. "The overriding theme for Blackbird in 2019 is momentum. The first half of 2019 has been an incredibly busy period for Blackbird and has seen our renewed strategy on sports and news gain traction, with the Company booking record revenues for the period and doubling our deferred revenue and contracted order book since 31 December 2018.

RE: U.S. Department of State chooses Blackbird02 Oct 2019 14:58
"As a large-scale non-traditional video broadcaster who is expanding their output, the US Department of State had the entire plethora of available technology and more traditional tools to choose from."
McDonough said the Department of State had chosen Blackbird because it could do things that no other cloud video platform was able to do.
"We can deliver unparalleled speed, high quality, full interoperability and scalability which is ideal for both large and small teams alike.
"The deployment of Blackbird is designed to raise the quality of output and drive engagement as well as internal productivity."
" the Company intends to now undertake a much broader process with the possibility of the acquisition of a significant part of the Project" Haven't read any comments on the board but the extract above indicates maybe a wish to become the operator only with say a 10% stake. I am sure CF wants to keep the project alive with some role for him.
Momentum was the key word. Forbidden could never honestly say that but Blackbird can. The next update if it can prove momentum or even a contract rns will underpin the ceo's confidence. Hopefully sp up by end of day.
FBT1- I have given the link its own message space. It emphasises the usage element of the business which Blackbird is cracking. Much more industry uptake and ability to be first reporter when trawling the web!
