Gravity Media will deploy a wide range of OB units in the context of its new partnership with NBC Sports

GRAVITY MEDIA TO DEPLOY AN EXTENSIVE RANGE OF MOBILE UNITS AS PART OF A NEW AGREEMENT WITH NBC SPORTS

In order to support NBC Sports’ coverage of Big Ten football and basketball, Gravity Media has recently announced a new partnership with the north american broadcasting company 

Gravity Media, the global company specialized of complex live creative production and media services, will deploy its latest mobile unit, called Aspen, together with its flagship mobile unit, Columbus and another new S-Class with the same specifications as Aspen, which is in progress; all of these movements are in order to join the fleet to support NBC Sports’ coverage from 2024.

The assignment begins with the start of this year’s College Football season with a game at The Big House, Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor.

NBC Sports announced its Big Ten schedule for the first three weeks of the 2023 football season last month as well as select games later in the season. Last year, NBC Universal and the Big Ten Conference announced a landmark 7-year agreement for NBC and Peacock to become the exclusive home of Big Ten Saturday Night football, beginning in 2023. Peacock will also serve as the exclusive home for eight additional Big Ten football games each season as well as dozens of college basketball games.

Over the course of the agreement, Gravity Media and NBC Sports engineers, in concert with NBC Sports’ producers and directors will employ innovative tactics from traditional Full-Production on site to Remote-Connected techniques at NBC Sports’ state-of-the-art facility in Stamford, Conn.  The production techniques were designed and perfected by NBC Sports’ and Gravity Media’s Broadcast Engineers in test case college events last season.

Sean Seamer – Gravity Media’s President in the USA commented: 

“Gravity Media’s HD mobile units offer the very latest in technology and we are excited to begin a substantive partnership with NBC Sports. We provided facilities for the Peacock Classic basketball game between Baylor and Gonzaga last December, but this Big Ten agreement opens a new, deeper chapter in our relationship. Gravity Media has been capturing college sports action across the U.S. for more than 10 years, supporting thousands of high-profile sporting events including bowl games. We are looking forward to building on this experience with NBC Sports.”

Ken Goss – NBC Sports EVP Studio & Remote Production commented:

“We are excited NBC Sports is expanding its technical facilities partnership with Gravity Media as part of a multi-year agreement, in which they will provide mobile units for our upcoming Big Ten coverage.”
