Studio Upgrade For Al Jazeera News

Qatar

Al Jazeera

THE PROJECT

Al Jazeera required an upgrade to the technical equipment housed in one of its control rooms, as existing equipment had become obsolete. Following a full tender process, the network selected leading broadcast solutions provider, Gravity Media – then branded Gearhouse Broadcast – to carry out the work.

THE APPROACH

Gravity Media’s Systems Integrations division drew on its vast experience in carrying out all manner of studio upgrades when approaching this project. Coupled with the unrivalled technical expertise of its team, an ability to innovate when devising solutions meant Gravity Media was able to quickly and efficiently carry out this upgrade, meeting all client objectives in a cost-effective manner.

The team worked hard to ensure the newly-configured equipment offered producers flexibility of use. Each piece of state-of-the-art kit was carefully selected from among the latest and best broadcast technologies available at the time. Only top-quality, reliable, cost effective solutions were employed throughout the entire upgrade process.

Gravity Media’s expert engineers replaced key items of production equipment in the control room, installing and integrating the following equipment Sony DVS-9000 vision mixer, Pixel Power graphics, 2x Miranda multi-viewer systems, 8x 52” Sony LCD panels, Midas audio mixing console and Miranda iControl monitoring system.

The team also needed to either modify or replace monitor stacks and desk furniture for Al Jazeera. Detailed planning and careful project management allowed the Gravity Media to complete this whilst not disrupting the busy schedule and requirements of what was a working studio.
