The 2021 FIFA Arab Cup took place between 30th November to 18th December 2021 which saw Algeria beat Tunisia 2-0 in a gripping final in front of 60,456 fans, a record attendance for a football match in Qatar. Gravity Media was thrilled to be involved in this test, warm-up tournament in the lead up to the eagerly anticipated inaugural Arabic World Cup.
Gravity Media supplied six Infotainment systems to the Local Organising Committee, Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy, which were permanently installed at all six FIFA Arab Cup stadiums across Qatar. The system consisted of a Simply Live Replay and Production Server, a Riedel Bolero Wireless Comms system, and Blackmagic vision mixer along with converters and glue.
The team also integrated the legacy system with an overlay system to complete specific operations requirements by adding RF cameras, an audio system, and a Digital Talkback Matrix.
In addition, the team deployed one of our unique flypacks incorporating state-of-the-art technology at the iconic Al-Bayt Stadium where the final was held. Featuring leading-edge vision mixers, routers, and servers, as well as sophisticated communication systems, our light-weight broadcast flypacks are designed to be taken to any location in the world to bring the live feeds from the biggest live events to every corner of the world.
Live and near-live coverage in football is where many of Gravity Media’s diverse capabilities come together, from consultancy, planning and design, to engineering, pre-production, logistics and crewing.
At every stage of an assignment, we provide the kit, the people, and the experience to ensure the project lands squarely in the back of the net. This includes live broadcast services, fast-turnaround highlights, and full-time edits, along with scripted, voiced and ready-to-air highlights programmes at the end of each match-night. Gravity Media has provided comprehensive broadcast solutions at the 2002, 2006, 2010, 2014 and 2018 World Cups.
