With more than a million people in attendance, Gravity Media (as Gearhouse Broadcast) helped to broadcast the highly anticipated 87th annual Hollywood Christmas Parade for Associates Television International. It supported the national two-hour special premiere on the CW Network with expanding HD mobile unit Maestro and 11 cameras onsite.

The 3.2-mile event began with a pre-parade, featuring performers Donny and Marie Osmond, R&B singer and actor Ruben Studdard, legendary band The Beach Boys and rapper and actor Ludacris.

Maestro was used to capture the seasonal spirit for audiences across the US. The 40 ft mobile unit features a full-length curb-side expand to allow seating for eight in production and five in tape. Find out more about are range of outside broadcast trucks here.
