There was no rest over the weekend as the Gravity Media team provided all the technical broadcast facilities capturing the action from the first circuit of 2021.   

Onsite, our services included outside broadcast trucks HD5 as Main Production & Fox Sports and HD9 as overflow & Ch7 unilateral, full track camera coverage, pit lane wireless and specialty cameras, in-car camera services (fully integrated 10 x TX paths with 120+ cameras in all categories), broadcast & virtual GFX, and team radios.   

New to the services from Gravity Media for 2021, is the increased support of technology for ‘Motorsports’ the onsite governing body who manage all race adjudication, with a centralised service in Race Control. 

EVS Xeebra sits at the base of our newly launched GRS (Gravity Review System), and an enhanced communications system in Pit Lane with Riedel Bolero at the coal face fully integrating with all other UHF and fibre borne communications.
