Gearhouse Broadcast supply mixing consoles for World Cup

News Image
Gearhouse Broadcast have purchased five Soundcraft B800 multi-bus mixing consoles and 10 BSS 9088 Soundwebs from Harman Pro, as part of an investment in their audio rental stock.
A key factor in this investment is the requirements of Host Broadcasting Services (HBS) and German broadcasters, ARD/ZDF for the World Cup – as well as ongoing commitments to Tennis Properties Ltd (TPL) for the Tennis Masters Series coverage - over the next three years.
"Having made large investments in video equipment we recognised the need to upgrade our audio mixers to higher specification units, in order to cater for the increasingly complex audio production requirements if our clients, and the scale of the events," said Kevin Moorhouse, Technical Director at Gearhouse Broadcast.
He added: "In particular, we required smaller, more compact but powerful units – in order to make shipping more cost-effective. The B800's fulfilled this requirement, while the specification met and exceeded the requirement of the sophisticated audio plan for the World Cup."
Each of the desks will be allocated to a flyaway as the main sound desk, with two BSS 9088 Soundweb DSP matrixing devices forming the hub of each of the five associated processing racks.
The B800's have been configured with 24 mono inputs, 12 stereo inputs, four mono and two stereo groups, and there are two fully independent stereo master output modules.
Six mono and two stereo aux sends are also provided, whiles extensive monitoring and cue facilities include stereo AFL/PFL and several sets of speaker and phones outputs. Four VCA groups provide additional level control.
Soundcraft's territorial sales manager, Jon Ridel, said: "This is a significant order for Soundcraft to have won, and much of the credit for the fulfilment is due to their refreshing approach and professionalism – which really made the whole thing happen."
