Gravity Media opens new production centre in Manchester

Gravity Media, the world leading provider of complex live broadcast facilities and production services, has today opened the doors to a brand new, state-of-the-art Production Centre in Manchester.

The relocation of its existing Manchester Production Centre in one of the fastest growing tech cities in Europe, will allow Gravity Media to offer a wide range of new services and will underpin expansion across broadcast and post-production markets, building client relationships and creative opportunities outside of London. The powerful network of connected Gravity Media remote Production Centres, coupled with expertise delivering turnkey solutions will continue to offer productions a unique range of options and flexibility.

The new Gravity Media Production Centre is located in Manchester city centre in the iconic ABC Buildings – which also plays home to VERSA studios, BBC, The Farm, Sony, Quay Street Productions, LS Productions and many more.

Recent Manchester work highlights included the team helping to relocate and set up the five-camera studio for BBC Studios working in collaboration with VERSA Studios which enabled the broadcast of popular daytime show, BBC Morning Live. Being in such close proximity will also mean Gravity Media can continue to work in partnership with VERSA Studios to supply equipment, integrate systems and provide engineering support.

Situated on the 4th floor of the ABC building, the 3,000 square foot space has been carefully designed to meet the high-grade technical specification needed by Gravity Media to service their broadcast clients, as well as a new base for their dedicated local equipment rental team. The new facility will mean Gravity Media can easily draw on its extensive EMEA and Global network and collaborate directly with its London Production Centre, enabling completely decentralised remote production workflows. The space boasts three off-tube commentary booths, two Avid Media Composer edit suites connected to the edit core for a full suite of edit services, a dedicated audio control room and two multi-suite, three-tier production galleries designed with the flexibility to integrate next generation cloud-based, GPU-powered workflows including the likes of MAVIS and GVAMPP. There is also a large production office, collaboration and meeting area. The ABC Buildings also offers a flexible workspace, café / bar, outdoor terrace, cinema and other communal areas.

Sitting in the heart of the city’s booming tech innovation and broadcasting sector means Gravity Media can also draw on the huge pool of highly skilled next generation talent from the area via the Salford University film, technology and media programmes.

Ed Tischler, Gravity Media - MD, EMEA, comments: “The expansion into a brand new, cutting-edge production centre is a big moment for Gravity Media. We are immensely proud of the team and the business and are excited about what the space can offer our clients. Our new Gravity Media Manchester base will be able to support clients with remote production and rental solutions for global broadcasters, production companies and live event organisers. The team can also offer specialist camera solutions, housing the latest Gravity Media innovation cameras trusted by content creators around the world, from handheld wireless cameras and in-sport on-boards, through to POV cameras, RF facilities and helicopter links.”

The new location joins Gravity Media’s current global Production Centres in London, Sydney, Melbourne and San Francisco.
