Gravity Media Invests In Remote And Hybrid Post Kit

As the post-Covid era approaches, Gravity Media says it is now ready for the future of editing and a noticeable shift towards a hybrid working model.

It has implemented a major investment programme for its London post-production services. A significant sum is being spent on kit upgrades and a long-term extension to the lease of its facility in Soho, “which will benefit its core client base – producers of high-quality drama and features.”

Gravity House, the 50-suite facility based on Frith Street which was set up by Gravity Media in 2017, will now have media housed securely on Avid Nexis shared storage on site while editors can work from their preferred location using Media Composer and HP hardware.

Leostream handles traffic from multiple cloud-based services, including Teradici, HP ZCentral, Amulet Hotkey and Windows Remote to provide a secure gateway and simple interface. Team viewings can be carried out safely in person at Gravity House, or remotely using Apple TV.

Key investment in new technology includes Amulet Hotkey DXZ4 Quad Zero Clients, DXH4 Quad Host Cards for PC and DXT-H4 Host Units for Mac, as well as powerful HP ZCentral 4R 1U workstations and Sienna NDI streaming solutions.

“The positive reaction from our customers to the flexibility offered by remote working with us during the pandemic will see this trend develop into a more established hybrid model as restrictions ease,” said Meryl McLaren, Director Media Services & Facilities at Gravity Media EMEA. “It’s great to have the option to work from anywhere, but there are real creative advantages to be had when bringing people together again under one roof. The technology and infrastructure investments we’re making will further support this hybrid model and enable us to continue its long-term development.”

The company claims to have the ability to deliver and install hardware packages for remote working including standalone offline edits, grades and dubs, as well as laptops running Adobe Creative Cloud to any location.
