Gravity and Globecast team at the Al Rayyan Stadium in Qatar.
Gravity Media will be providing a range of onsite technical facilities from standup positions to complete temporary studios for broadcasters covering the FIFA World Cup in Qatar in winter 2022. Globecast is providing fully redundant satellite and fibre connectivity as well as public internet reach if desired. Gravity will also provide post-production services for broadcasters.
Ed Tischler, MD at Gravity Media in EMEA, said, “This partnership is about making life better and easier for customers. By working with Globecast, we can provide clients with a single, tightly integrated offering that we can tailor to the needs of each customer. We can offer remote production as well, with customers able to use our production facilities in London, San Francisco and Sydney, again supported by Globecast’s connectivity. We have also had offices in Qatar since 2007 so we know the country very well.”
James Whittaker, Business Development Manager, Globecast, said, “This is a powerful partnership that will provide premium, end-to-end services for customers at what is one of the world’s great supporting events. Broadcasters not only need our combined technical capabilities, they also need premium level signal reliability wherever they may be. Alongside this connectivity, we’re really focussing on our customer approach with this partnership as well.”
