Gravity Media is working with Amazon Prime, Eurosport and ESPN on coverage of this year’s US Open at Flushing Meadow in New York.
The company is providing services to the Host Broadcast and domestic facilities for ESPN alongside unilateral facilities for Amazon Prime and Eurosport.
The 180-member Gravity Media crew have been on site at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center to install and test the core Host Broadcast Facilities, whilst working closely with other vendors to ensure a successful delivery of the tournament.
Gravity Media shipped eight 50-tonne sea containers and 43 tonnes of air freight for the three-week rig across 17 different courts, revealed the company. It has deployed its Speciality Radio Cameras across the grounds and courts to capture action and colour of the tournament.
Ed Tischler, Gravity Media MD said: “As the world-leading global provider of complex live broadcast facilities, the annual US Open is a wonderful opportunity for us to leverage the collective pull of our people and resources to capture, craft and create dynamic content that inspires and excites. We’ve endeavoured to make this the most successful broadcast from every possible angle across the 17 courts.
“The coverage thus far has been a credit to each, and every 180 Gravity Media crew members involved in working closely to support ESPN, alongside the unilateral facilities for Amazon Prime and Eurosport. A huge thank you to everyone taking part. From Serena to Nadal, we’re excited to see what action unfolds this year”.
