This innovative location post solution is part of Gravity Media’s ‘Capture’ offering, enabling seamless records of multiple tiers of video including a high-res media file, an edit proxy, and a live-web streamable version.

Successfully deployed on entertainment reality series’, mRes captures content effortlessly 24 hours a day for weeks at a time. This location post-production solution provides a local file copy saved to Gravity Media’s recording service and writes all edit-friendly files to any external storage, tailored to the needs of each unique client project.

Features of mRes include: continuous recording for multiple hi-resolution and proxy file creation, compatibility with Avid Interplay, integration with 10G connectivity to storage, allowing local and NDI network multiviewer monitoring and ingesting multiple formats and frame rates to various storage targets simultaneously.

This compact and scalable solution is now available as part of Gravity Media’s Remote Production offering which enables this to be linked back to Gravity Media’s brand-new state-of-the-art Production Centre located in White City, London which opened earlier this year as well as at Gravity Media’s Production Centre in Chiswick, London and Production Centre located in the heart of Manchester.

Gravity Media has serviced off-line rooms, screening and cafe/bar facilities at Gravity House in Soho providing a welcoming base for London’s TV and film post-production community. In addition, Gravity Media’s online edit facilities are accessible from all its global production centres, robust and agile broadcast facilities delivering the most creative and innovative solutions for you and your teams.

Jonathan Aroesty, President of Pronology adds: “It has been rewarding for Pronology to work with Gravity Media to get their mRes record workflows into the marketplace with the same reliability and robustness that Pronology’s reputation was built upon.”

Steve Kruger, Gravity Media’s executive director - Technology comments: “This is the perfect next move for us at Gravity Media to launch our location post-production solution. For over six years, mRes has been my choice of fixed rig recorder, used in numerous projects I have worked across whilst previously at ITV Studios Entertainment. I am truly excited to be a part of launching this location post-production solution at Gravity Media, working with clients across the globe to ensure a compact and fast solution linking back to our London and Manchester Production Centres.”

Adding to Gravity Media’s comprehensive and flexible suite of post-production services catering for every need, this remote solution with mRes creates post-footage requirements in a real-time enabling simultaneous delivery.
