The schedule of a top international tennis player is hectic – as is that of the broadcasters who follow them to all points of the globe to bring the action to huge audiences across the world.

Gearhouse Broadcast Project Solutions Division is proud to have been chosen for the tenth  year in succession to deliver technical and production broadcast facilities for the ATP  World Tour Masters 1000  – nine tournaments throughout the season taking place in venues as far flung as Cincinnati,  Toronto, Miami and Monte Carlo.

Gearhouse Broadcast has also been contracted to provide the technical facilities for this year’s tour finale, The Masters Cup – where the eight top ranked players compete to become the overall series winner – in London at The 02 Arena in November 2010.

Of paramount importance to clients ATP Media  is the ability to provide comprehensive and consistent technical and production facilities for the 50 leading international broadcasters who cover the series whatever the venue, in order to maintain and enhance the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 ’ status as one of the most important events on the international sporting calendar.

Key to this is Gearhouse Broadcast’s state-of-the-art digital flyaway rigs, which feature video routing, distribution, communication, CCU and monitor gallery rigs.

After each event these are configured specifically to meet the demands of the next location on the tour so that they can be quickly and effectively integrated and installed by project engineers on site.

The tournaments usually cover two or three courts in the initial stages then go down to one court as the knockout stages progress, meaning that some of the equipment can be removed, configured and then sent on early to the next destination.

ATP Media’s CEO Steve Plasto says: “We opted for Gearhouse Broadcast because we are confident in their capabilities to create the same broadcast environment anywhere in the world. They have demonstrated their expertise and professionalism time and again throughout the Tennis Masters Series tournaments.”

Other services that have made Gearhouse Broadcast the system integration solutions provider of choice include:

  • A core technical back up and support crew at every venue
  • Infrastructure solutions including portacabins to house equipment, power supply requirements and catering facilities
  • Logistical planning to ensure equipment and crew move from event to event smoothly and on time
  • Accommodation and administrative support
  • Additional top up facilities and equipment to meet broadcasters on-the-spot requirements

Forward planning, site visits and liaison with venue managers through the tournament.
