On 15 July 2021 Gravity Media acquired Telstra Broadcast Services’ DSNG (Digital Satellite) fleet and its speciality Globecam miniature camera business and associated Radio Frequency Links.
Gravity Media currently operates in Australia from Sydney and Melbourne, providing Outside Broadcast trucks, studios, production & content related services and post-production facilities. This acquisition will complement its existing Outside Broadcast fleet in Australia as well as its UK-based speciality cameras division. The DSNG fleet is the largest in Australasia with 10 satellite uplink vehicles and three satellite flyaway uplinks. The robust units have enhanced uplink power and ensured resilience/duplication of critical equipment and power designed for operation from remote locations.
The Globecam specialty cameras unit is renowned for debuting exciting new devices: NetCam on all four Grand Slams in 2018 and Live JockeyCam around Australia in 2019. In 2021, Globecam returned to providing Onboard Live Camera solutions for Supercars Australia, in concert with Gravity Media. Clients for the two units include all the biggest broadcast networks and organisations in the world; and the engineers who transferred to Gravity Media as part of this transaction are well versed on live sport, entertainment and events including major political symposiums and sporting tournaments and games.
