Gravity Media Acquires Telstra Broadcast Services' DSNG (Digital Satellite) Fleet

News Image
Gravity Media has acquired Telstra Broadcast Services' DSNG (Digital Satellite) fleet, its speciality Globecam miniature camera business and associated Radio Frequency Links.

Gravity Media currently operates in Australia from Sydney and Melbourne, providing Outside Broadcast trucks, studios, production & content related services and post-production facilities. This acquisition will complement its existing Outside Broadcast fleet in Australia as well as its UK-based speciality cameras division. The acquired DSNG fleet is the largest in Australasia with 10 satellite uplink vehicles and three satellite flyaway uplinks. The robust units have enhanced uplink power and ensured resilience/duplication of critical equipment and power designed for operation from remote locations.

The Globecam specialty cameras unit is renowned for debuting exciting new devices: NetCam on all four Grand Slams in 2018 and Live JockeyCam around Australia in 2019. In 2021, Globecam returned to providing Onboard Live Camera solutions for Supercars Australia, in concert with Gravity Media. Clients for the two units include all the biggest broadcast networks and organisations in the world. The engineers transferring to Gravity Media as part of this transaction are well versed on live sport, entertainment and events, including major political symposiums, sporting tournaments and games.

John Newton, Founder & CEO, Gravity Media, commented: "Enhancing Gravity Media’s broadcast services with the DSNG and Globecam businesses and teams from Telstra Broadcast Services is a logical extension of our highly regarded outside broadcast, production, studio and hire operations in Australia, Europe, the USA and around the world. Gravity Media and Telstra Broadcast Services often work side by side, so the synergies are well and truly there from the past, present and in the future.

"With the recent acquisitions of Input Media and Chief Entertainment, Gravity Media continues to grow its suite of premium broadcast offerings and looks forward to integrating the DSNG and Globecam teams into its business in Australia and globally, to the ultimate and ongoing benefit of our clients."
