Outside Broadcast

Over the weekend of February 29 to March 1, Gravity Media’s engineers Stephanie Matthews, Jim Duval, Tim Ash, Alex Summer and Paul Windsor were on location alongside mobile production unit Columbus at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California, to cover the LA Rugby Sevens for Sunset+Vine.

Sixteen teams from around the world competed in 45 matches across the weekend, which ultimately culminated in a Fiji v South Africa final. The Blitzboks ran out eventual winners 29-24 after extra time, staging an incredible comeback after a blistering start by Fiji. The South Pacific team scored three unanswered tries in the first five minutes, but South Africa fought back to equalise in the dying seconds, and then went on to score the sudden-death try to secure the win.
