Ed Tischler, our Acting Managing Director for the UK, caught up with Televisual on the changes within the outside broadcast sector and how IP is advancing. The piece features in the Spring issue of the UK TV and film publication and looks at circumstances of the coronavirus pandemic which has caused a seismic shift in the live sports events timetable and pretty much every other upcoming global event.

Gravity Media can speak with a high level of authority on the topic, given the extensive groundwork it has put in to delivering outside broadcast productions of all shapes and sizes in recent years. The Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder fight also features in this Televisual issue where Gravity Media delivered the fight live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas in February this year for BT Sport’s PPV coverage. 

Although mobile unit, Columbus was built to serve the North American production market, it can be configured with elements that are preferred in British Productions as stated by Marc Genin, EVP at Gravity Media.

A large portion of an OB’s investment into IP at the moment goes into edge gear says Gravity Media’s Ed Tischler. Ed also highlights that OBs need to align themselves to the right manufactures as best as possible to best plan for the future.
