The Island with Bear Grylls

In preparation for the show, Gravity Media – then branded HyperActive Broadcast – teamed up with Evolutions Post to design and supply all the necessary workflows and post-production hardware necessary to capture the action, and in turn ingest all the captured media ready for editing.


We provided 16 x Avid Media Composer Nitris DX suites, along with 192TB RAW storage on Avid ISIS 5000 Series Storage Engines. The setup came complete with Synology NAS disk stations for backup and full redundancy.


The whole job went without a hitch, and the show went on to win two awards: a BAFTA for Best Reality and Constructed Factual, and an RTS Television Award for Best Popular, Factual and Features.
