Over several decades, Gravity Media has developed a reputation for excellence in the provision of broadcast solutions for major sports events worldwide, including the Australian Open tennis tournament, Formula 1 motor racing, and the Commonwealth Games.
The first outing of this new test & measurement investment was at this Summer’s European football championships where Gravity Media provided host broadcast services to the event’s organizer. The international event employed ten stadia spread across Europe and each featured a Technical Operations Centre (TOC) where Gravity Media’s staff and equipment was located.
Telestream Sync Generators and Waveform Monitors are two of the most important tools available to ensure the accurate timing and video quality of live sport and event productions. Telestream signal generators are a key to timing many different devices to a single Grandmaster clock in hybrid environments where SDI infrastructure is also present. The ability to include a wide variety of standards and custom test signals in the same device is a great benefit. So, too is the ability to provide redundancy. For situations where timing from a GPS is crucial to the operation, the ability to continue operations, even in the event of a lost GPS signal is critical.
Building on decades of specialist experience under the Tektronix brand, Telestream Waveform Monitors are the de facto standard in engineering instruments. As their wide application in sports and live events by Gravity Media customers demonstrate, they are also the ideal solution for production tasks such as camera shading and remote diagnostics.
