Forbidden Technologies said Monday fitness technology giant, Peloton, had chosen the company's cloud video platform Blackbird to edit its on-demand virtual classes.
Peloton marked a significant addition to Blackbird's growing roster of US customers, which included 'leading' sports broadcaster MSG Networks, the company said. The US, the world's largest video content market, represented a growing proportion of the company's revenues.
Peloton held cycling classes of up to 35,000 riders globally at any one time. Once finished, the videos are delivered immediately to the extensive on-demand video library housed on the Peloton app and website for Peloton's vast global cycling community to access.
Peloton would use Blackbird to edit all the daily rides given by its cycling instructors from its two studios in New York and one in London. Blackbird would 'significantly' reduce the time it takes for Peloton to make the high-quality, on-demand videos available.
