This summer’s football World Cup finals was one the most challenging and complex projects Gearhouse Broadcast has been involved in to date, and now broadcast equipment sent out to South Africa, much of it bought in especially for the event, is up for sale.
Demand and enquiries for the ex-World Cup used broadcast equipment has been constant ever since it arrived back in the UK from South Africa.
Amongst the stock of ex-World Cup kit that is available are a wide range of Imagine Communications Dual 1×4 and single 1×8 Distribution Amplifiers, Imagine Communications Up/Down/Cross Converters, Imagine Communications Signal processing equipment, Evertz HD/SD Duel Multiviewers and state of the art Tektronix Multi-Format Waveform Monitors.
The World Cup was responsible for a big surge of activity in the broadcast services sector, with huge demands placed on manufacturers and broadcast system solutions specialists like Gearhouse Broadcast to provide the most up-to-date equipment and technology, including broadcast system cameras and Audio Video test equipment.
The sheer volume of equipment required to meet demand, ensure that the projects ran smoothly and to deadline, involved Gearhouse Broadcast making significant investments in Canon HD Lenses, Sennheiser Microphones, Sony HD Monitors, Sony HD Cameras and Sony HD Camcorders. Added to this were Pro-Bel SD/HD Routers, Tektronix Test Equipment, Evertz VIP Multi Viewers, Imagine Communications Distribution and Glue products and 14 EVS XT2+ servers to compliment an existing inventory of 32, all just in order to service the demand for the product at the World Cup.
It was not just Gearhouse Broadcast’s equipment that was in demand. Given the size of South Africa, the sheer logistics of the operation around the whole tournament meant the technical infrastructure behind the scenes had to be spot on, and Gearhouse Broadcast’s project solution and systems integration expertise had a major part to play.
