Gravity Media Group Appoints New Head Of Technology

News Image
Gravity Media Group (GMG) has appointed John Currie as its Head of Technology.

In the new role, John will be responsible for the research and implementation of technology for the group and assist in the development of technical strategies that will ensure Gravity Media remains at the forefront of delivering the latest innovations and services to its customers.

John joins Gravity Media Group from Magenta Broadcast, a specialist systems integrator, that he co-founded in 2015 as Technical Director. In this role, he specialised in the design and delivery of cutting-edge broadcast systems and infrastructure for systems on-premise, cloud and hybrid for live, post and playout customers. Prior to that, John was a trusted server engineer at Gearhouse Broadcast, focussing on large server systems and tapeless workflows that were used for international flyaway outside broadcasts and long format events. He started his career within the broadcast industry as a runner at 021 Television.

Currie said: "I spent six exciting years at Gearhouse Broadcast earlier on in my career, where I experienced first-hand the business’s appetite for using the latest technology, so it’s great to return to Gravity Media in this strategic role. These are exciting times for the group, with impressive headway already made in the deployment of remote production, IP-based workflows and high-resolution formats, and I look forward to pushing these boundaries further."
