Gravity Media (as HyperActive Broadcast) engineers attended the Royal British Legion’s annual Festival of Remembrance at The Royal Albert Hall on Saturday night, supporting an Avid Interplay workflow solution alongside XTAccess and IPDirectors for streaming and recording.

The Festival of Remembrance commemorates all those who have lost their lives in conflicts, and was attended by the Queen and other members of the royal family. This year’s event was presented by Huw Edwards, with performances from Sir Tom Jones, Sheridan Smith, Sir Bryn Terfel among others.

The Gravity Media setup included two Avid edit suites, Avid Interplay server, Avid Transfer engine, EVS IPD and EVS XTAccess to facilitate quick turnaround highlight editing.

Aired live on BBC One on the eve of the centenary of the Armistice, the Festival is a tribute to the remarkable generation who contributed to the First World War.


On 31 October 2019, the four leading broadcast and production houses Gearhouse Broadcast, Hyperactive Broadcast, Input Media and Chief Entertainment owned by Gravity Media Group started trading under the brand name of ‘Gravity Media’. All Gravity Media companies around the world are making this transition and will now go to market as a single brand with a bold new look and purpose.
