These control rooms are supported by our large MCR, which oversees our abundant Telstra fibre connectivity, allowing content to be sent to or received from anywhere in the world at a moment’s notice.

Recent work

Among recent projects at The Production Centre, Sydney are the Supercars Championship and Telstra’s below-the-line video content.

For the 2020 Supercars season, we facilitated the World Feed and Unilateral broadcasts, supplying full track camera coverage, pit lane wireless and specialty cameras, in-car cameras, GFX and team radios, as well as a complete onsite non-broadcast communications solution.

And when COVID-19 forced borders to close, we swapped our onsite setup for a remote production solution: remote control rooms, hostings, race control, QC… each vital production element coordinated from the Production Centre and delivered flawlessly from venues as far as 4,000 km (2,500 miles) apart.

Meanwhile, our Corporate & Commercial team has been helping Telstra with the production of creative video content, including product and service videos, TVCs, brand campaigns, and a variety of online and social media pieces.

Recent months have seen us deliver a live virtual trade show, and videos on employee wellbeing, leadership, product launches and human-interest stories. The Gravity Media team includes directors, producers, copywriters, editors, motion designers and production managers, who are here to see each project through from concept to asset delivery.
