Gravity Media is preparing for some of 2020’s biggest sporting events by building new flyaway kits powered by the Platinum IP3 router from Imagine Communications.
Gravity Media has used equipment from Imagine Communications for over 15 years, choosing the field-proven Platinum IP3 to create a system that provides the resilience and reliability required for live broadcasting, but in a compact footprint. The new flyaways will use both the 15RU and 28RU routers.
The key project for the flyaways will be in June, when this summer’s UEFA Euro 2020 football tournament takes place in various cities across the continent. The Platinum IP3 routers incorporate integral multiviewer technology. The order also includes a number of modules from Imagine’s Selenio 6800+ processing range, along with Magellan router control panels.
“We picked the Platinum IP3 because we know it is reliable — we know what it does,” said Peter Newton, technical and operations director at Gravity Media Group. “Because of the established partnership with Imagine, we knew that we would get good support if we need it, and we will get ample utilisation of the equipment. It is a good solid product that does what it says it will.”
