Gravity Media, the world leading global provider of complex live creative production and media services, and JAMTV have announced an ongoing partnership to produce television coverage of the 2022 AFLW season.
This is the sixth AFLW season for Gravity Media’s broadcast facilities collaboration with JAMTV which produces AFLW television coverage for Fox Footy and Kayo.
Gravity Media’s state-of-the-art outside broadcast units, satellite and uplink facilities, and crews are working closely with JAMTV’s production team as they criss-cross the country during this AFLW season.
Gravity Media is involved in the coverage of 47 games. In addition to providing broadcast technologies for JAMTV, Gravity Media also produces the big screens coverage at the stadiums.
Cos Cardone, CEO of JAMTV, said: “AFLW is a significant part of our live sports production slate at JAM TV – and has been right from our production of the very first game between Carlton and Collingwood in 2017.
“Gravity Media has been a terrific facilities provider in how we have evolved the coverage in that time for our broadcast partner Fox Sports.
“Bringing the game to community venues is a feature of the AFLW competition, and together we have developed a production overlay which has made this a seamless and successful broadcast product.”
Kahleah Webb, Head of Operations at Gravity Media, added: “Gravity Media will use nine outside broadcast trucks, including our newly acquired SNG fleet, and a total team of 940 crew across the country to deliver 188 hours of coverage from 21 venues around Australia over this season.
“It is a significant technological and logistical exercise that builds on our successful AFLW broadcast facilities provision to JAMTV over the past six years.”
Through its studios, production, and post-production centres, outside broadcast facilities and specialist camera technologies, Gravity Media Australia is currently involved with major production companies, television networks and pay television and streaming platforms in Australia across projects including Australian Ninja Warrior, The Masked Singer, Australia’s Got Talent, and I’m A Celebrity.
Gravity Media also has technology, facilities, and production partnerships across many of Australia’s major sports events.
