Gravity Media has announced the appointment of Tony Valentino as its new head of RF and Speciality Cameras in the UK.
Valentino started his career working on onboard camera systems for F1, and has since worked for a number of high-profile sports events as well as pioneering the transition to high definition with the first live HD transmission from a helicopter at the 2005 FIFA Confederations Cup in Germany. Valentino set up the UK division of Broadcast Sports International in 2011, winning major long-term contracts with Sky Sports for F1 and BT Sport for Premiership Rugby.
Ed Tischler, sirector, Gravity Media, said: “We’re experiencing more and more demand for wireless and speciality cameras as content creators continually look for innovative ways to capture more content to further enrich their programming. Tony’s extensive experience of deploying RF at major events and in challenging environments, and his ability to implement new technologies and ways of working, make him ideal for this new role here at Gravity Media.”
Tony Valentino added: “It’s an exciting time for Gravity Media following its recent transition to a single brand and I’m looking forward to getting started on some really interesting projects that we’ve got lined up.”
