Gravity is a suite of Windows applications that can be used together in different combinations to address specific workflows and system requirements. The platform is format and codec independent. At the core, the system uses SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) and describes content and other elements within an industry standard SQL database.
The applications themselves are configurable, can provide high levels of redundancy including complete mirroring, and lend themselves to customisation to suit a userís needs. Gravity solutions such as the Surgical Recorder have been developed from the core technology for specific user applications. Interfaces to other IT applications, such as for the Broadcast MOS protocol, have also been developed to meet particular needs.
