Gearhouse Broadcast prepares for World Cup with Tektronix

Tektronix, a leading worldwide provider of test, measurement and monitoring solutions, has announced that Gearhouse Broadcast, a UK rental, sales, project solutions and systems integration company, has selected an extensive range of Tektronix waveform monitors to provide content verification capabilities in support of the 2006 World Cup.
Gearhouse Broadcast will serve as a principal partner in providing technical production facilities to the host broadcaster in 12 cities throughout Germany for the 2006 World Cup.
The company, world-renowned for providing the most up-to-date digital technology as well as unrivalled experience and expertise for major events, purchased a combined total of more than 50 Tektronix WFM700M and WFM601E Waveform Monitors for use during the broadcasts.
“The World Cup broadcasts require an immense amount of verification and restoration, and we’re proud to rely on the gold standard technology included in the Tektronix WFM range,” said Eamonn Dowdall, Managing Director, Gearhouse Broadcast. “The Tektronix WFM700 Series offers the monitoring capabilities needed in the production, post-production, distribution and transmission of high-definition (HD) and standard-definition (SD) digital video content. It is basically everything a broadcaster needs for these applications in one package.”
“Monitoring digital video and audio quality continually presents new challenges to broadcasters everywhere,” said Nicki Fisher, Tektronix Video Sales Manager, EMEA. Ensuring high quality and high reliability is imperative for a broadcast as critical as the 2006 World Cup. Tektronix is thrilled to be chosen by a world-class broadcast operation for an equally world-class event. Gearhouse’s choice of Tektronix is a dynamic endorsement of our technology.”
