GRAVITY MEDIA UK POST-PRODUCTION RENTAL DIVISION MOVES TO BIGGER FACILITY Posted: 23/03/2020
GRAVITY MEDIA UK POST-PRODUCTION RENTAL DIVISION MOVES TO BIGGER FACILITY

Gravity Media, the leading global provider of complex live broadcast facilities and production services to content owners, creators and distributors, has moved its UK post-production equipment rental business to a larger facility. Its new home is a 15,000 square foot (1,400 square metre) building including purpose built mezzanine floor in Southwood on the outskirts of Farnborough, five miles away from its previous base at Ash Vale in neighbouring Surrey.

The division, which specialises in providing non-linear editing and post production services for the long-form television and feature film markets was formerly known as HyperActive Broadcast. Late last year it was rebranded alongside sister companies Gearhouse Broadcast, Input Media and Chief Entertainment as Gravity Media, enabling the single brand to offer more end-to-end solutions and drive greater value for its clients.

It also operates Gravity House, a high-end post-production facility on Frith Street in London’s Soho. This offers networked suites of cutting rooms capable of full end-to-end 4K production workflows, colour grading, motion graphics, visual effects and 3D. The facility is popular with leading productions such as The Crown, Endeavour and The Aeronauts.
