Gearhouse Delivers For 2014 Asian Games

News Image
Gearhouse Broadcast recently delivered HD production facilities for the 2014 Asian Games (XVII Asiad) in Incheon, South Korea.

Working with Mito, for Incheon Host Broadcasting Management, Gearhouse provided coverage with 65 cameras across five venues. The company supplied 31 super slow-mo camera channels and 50 specialist and radio cameras, and sent out a 60-strong team of experts to provide on-site technical support.
Gearhouse called on the services of its new in-house specialist RF business, Gearhouse Actis, following its acquisition of French company Actis HF, in July 2014. Through Gearhouse's partnership with Hitachi, the Gearhouse Actis team were able to develop a solution prior to the Games so that the Hitachi SK-HD1200 production camera could be used wirelessly.
"Having Gearhouse Actis on board is a huge help to us both during the build-up to the Asian Games, and while on-site in Incheon," said Edward Tischler, head of projects at Gearhouse Broadcast.
"It proved a valuable resource for my projects team, and our customers at major events in the future. With their expertise on hand, we can now be much more flexible in meeting the usual RF challenges we face at events like this like the inevitable frequency changes."
With a large amount of equipment returning from this summer's World Cup in Brazil, Gearhouse shipped a total of 68 tons of kit to South Korea. This included 65 Hitachi cameras, 25 newly upgraded EVS systems, eight Sony MVS vision mixers, as well as multiple Snell routers and Lawo V_pro8 video processors.
Sang Ho Park, president of Mito Corpotation, said: "Gearhouse has a proven track record of performing at the biggest events, and has been able to deliver various solutions to meet our broadcast needs, so it was a logical choice for us to work with them.
"Thanks to its relationship with Hitachi, as well as its new in-house RF offering, Gearhouse Actis, we were able to reduce the number of vendors we had to deal with, which has simplified things from our perspective."
