This is one of five stadia for which the UK-based broadcast solutions provider has installed the cabling.
Qatar’s brand-new Al Thumama Stadium, which opened its doors to fans last month for the Final of the Amir Cup between Al Sadd and Al Rayyan and can seat 40,000 people, chose UK-based company Gravity Media to provide the broadcast cabling infrastructure for the stadium.
Gravity Media provided the cabling infrastructure between the camera wall-box positions across the stadium through to the OB patch room to enable a plug and play solution fit for international broadcast standards, according to Edward Dowdall, Sales Manager, Gravity Media.
“The Al Thumama Stadium is the fourth stadium which the local team from Gravity Media has delivered to a high international standard playing a key role in preparing Qatar to host what is the biggest and most eagerly anticipated sporting event ever held in the region. Our role was to provide the broadcast cabling infrastructure to connect the technical production facilities for the host broadcast. The other stadia Gravity Media has completed include the Khalifa International, the Al-Bayt and the Ahmed Bin Ali stadiums,” Dowdall commented.
