Gravity Media supplies production, programming, and content services for every broadcast need, from broadcast equipment, OB trucks to live event coverage and delivery and distribution services. Working across content owners, creators, and distributors, projects are varied but all include pristine execution underpinned by client service excellence.

The stand will also give the team a chance to showcase Gravity Media’s 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, RF facilities and helicopter links, our clients enjoy the many benefits of the latest specialist camera solutions. From the jungle to the desert, the innovative specialist cameras are entrusted by filmmakers around the world to capture extraordinary images in challenging locations.

Gravity Media will also be hosting a Panel Discussion on Thursday 12 May at 2.45pm on the Broadcast Stage with BBC Studios and VERSA Studios as they delve into how they worked together to relocate the popular daytime show Morning Live in just two months.

The talk titled: The Making Of Morning Live: Relocating the popular morning show to Manchester ABC building sees Dave Rutter – Production Engineering Manager at BBC Studios, Charlie Ingall – Executive Director at VERSA Studios take to the stage to join Gravity Media’s Meryl McLaren – Director of Media Services & Facilities, Paul Sykes – Head of Systems Integration and Jamie Brewer – Head of Broadcast & Post Production Rental.

The popular breakfast show Morning Live which launched on Monday 21 February at 9.15am from the new roof top studios in the ABC Building, Quay Street, Manchester, features a ‘northern powerhouse of women’ hosts made up of Sam Quek, Kimberley Walsh and Sara Cox who join Kym Marsh and Gethin Jones as permanent members of the presenting line up. Enabling the broadcast from the new VERSA ABC Studio, Gravity Media worked closely to deliver the show from a brand new studio it had created in the heart of Manchester. The studio boasts a highly technical specification where Gravity Media was appointed to provide systems integration, technical equipment supply and rental for both the studio and wraparound edit and ingest with ongoing engineering support.
