7 Production OB

Gravity Media and 7 Production have partnered for the Qatar World Cup.

The pair will provide outside broadcast facilities for the rights and non-rights holders at the competition, which is taking place 21 November until 18 December.

They will offer 4K and HD trucks, including Suhail, Gravity Media’s six camera HD OB vehicle with DSNG capability. International and locally-based crew will be available, and Gravity Media will be working closely with teams from its Doha office - which installed broadcast infrastructure for four of the eight venues.

Meanwhile, 7 Production offers four medium and large sized HD/4K Outside Broadcast Trucks, the smallest being twelve+ cameras. In addition, all trucks have SNG capability for live transmission along with specialist ENG, 4G and remote cameras. 

Eamonn Dowdall, executive director of Gravity Media, said: “Gravity Media looks forward to the collaboration with Seven Production. Working together makes us the most powerful and creative media broadcasting partnership, allowing us to offer cutting edge production services across the region. Our state-of-the-art OB vehicles are readily available for the upcoming eagerly anticipated World Cup.”

Pierre Tabet, managing director of 7 Production, added: “Seven’s collaboration with Gravity Media is the best broadcasting partnership the World Cup could possibly have. Our extensive knowledge in sports broadcasting combined with years of experience in the Middle East results in the perfect solution for such a world class event.”
