Gravity Media’s French base is strategically located next to the EMGP studios in Saint-Denis – just 10 minutes from the heart of Paris, and 20 minutes from Charles De Gaulle airport – where our team of management, engineering and support staff has been serving both domestic and international markets for years.

Clients working on sport, entertainment and TV productions all over the world come to us for our expertise – most notably in the field of speciality/RF cameras and bespoke remote solutions, as well as self-contained/ultra-efficient mobile production units (flypacks). We are also one of France’s premier suppliers of 4K lenses and cameras, alongside what is probably Europe’s most extensive inventory of EVS and Avid production solutions.

Packages available from France are both modular and integrated, meaning we can flex our offering to match your requirements – and everything works seamlessly together. Whether you need a single service or a complete end-to-end solution, one thing is guaranteed: flawless execution underpinned by remarkable client service.

Equipment rental

Gravity Media in France offers the latest broadcast equipment for rental to the OB, studio and production markets, supported by an expert, 24/7 technical backup service. All our rental equipment is carefully prepared and tested before every job, and our Transportation & Logistics team delivers within days of order – or within hours, if you’re based in Paris. With extensive project experience, technical proficiency and consultancy expertise coupled with product, industry and systems integration knowledge, we can support client requirements across the entire media, event and production landscape.

Our Paris office is home to a huge inventory of cameras, lenses, tripods and RF systems, and we are also able to provide a variety of media recorders, microphones, audio consoles and vision mixers. One of the many benefits of being part of the wider Gravity Media group is that we have access to vast stocks of the very latest broadcast and production equipment, and can service every conceivable project requirement from our different bases around the world. 

RF & Specialty Cameras

We also offer a comprehensive range of speciality cameras, tracking systems and remote solutions for global broadcasters, production companies and live-event organisers. From handheld wireless cameras and in-sport on-boards, through to POV cameras, motorbike RF facilities and gyro-stabilised helicopter devices, our clients enjoy the latest tech and the many benefits of wireless camera solutions.

With more than 30 years of experience, our engineers have gained an enviable reputation for expert delivery, and stand among the best RF specialists in the world. The team can design and deliver a range of different setups, ranging from a simple radio camera link to complex, multi-camera live transmissions, as seen in pro-tour cycling, powerboat racing, and more.

From reality TV to live motorsport, and from the jungle to the desert, our specialty cameras capture rare and extraordinary images in the most challenging of locations. And our crews are similarly at ease in every corner of the world, from deserted snow-capped mountains, to crowded city stadia.

Flypacks

Finally, our flypacks contain everything you need to deliver complex high-definition broadcasts anywhere in the world. They’re the backbone of any modern production workflow, offering flexibility, powerful tools and operational efficiencies. From studio productions to remote outside broadcasts, these extremely popular units feature the latest UHD, 4K and IP technology; leading-edge vision mixers, routers and servers; and sophisticated communication systems.

Fully scalable and tailored to your individual onsite and remote production needs, our France-based flyaways can be deployed both on location or within existing studio facilities. We can also help you manage the entire broadcast operation, from consultancy, planning and design through to set-up, logistics, crewing and onsite infrastructure. We have an unmatched record for delivering high-quality, innovative solutions that are as robust and reliable as they are efficient and effective.

Also based in France is our unique suite of interconnected, pre-integrated broadcast and production pods. With designated units for Audio, Production and MCR, these pods offer all the features of an OB vehicle, in uniform, portable containers that can easily be transported anywhere by road or air. Configured by our in-house experts, these hi-tech units contain all the equipment needed for HD outside broadcasts, as well as bespoke furniture, air conditioning and electrical distribution, meaning crews can be up and running within minutes of deployment. Compact yet powerful, these in-demand pods are the perfect option for teams looking for a robust, rapid-response production solution.
