Globecast has announced a partnership with Gravity Media to provide end-to-end production and connectivity services to broadcasters at next year’s 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Gravity Media will be providing on-site technical facilities from stand-up positions to complete temporary studios for international broadcasters to use which will be supported by Globecast’s satellite and fibre connectivity as well as public internet reach. Gravity Media will also provide post production services for broadcasters.
“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,” said Ed Tischler, managing director at Gravity Media in EMEA. “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, added, “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.”
