Gravity Media, a provider of outside broadcast trucks and flyaway production kits, is building further systems in preparation for premier sporting events in 2020, including a major football competition in Europe. Central to the new flyaway kits is the Platinum IP3 router from Imagine Communications. The new flyaways will use both the 15RU and 28RU routers. The provider has used equipment from Imagine Communications for over 15 years.
The key project, for which these flyaways are designed, requires support in 12 locations over a four-week period in June 2020. The kits will provide live production functionality. The Platinum IP3 routers incorporate integral multiviewer technology, reducing space in the racks and simplifying setup. 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. Because of the established partnership with Imagine, we knew that we would get good support, if we need it, and we will get ample utilization of the equipment. It is a good solid product that does what it says it will.”
