Gearhouse Broadcast, a leading reseller of professional broadcast equipment announces the sale of various HD broadcast equipment to Metro Broadcast to assist with the build of their new Hi-Definition portable production unit.

Gearhouse Broadcast Sales Division worked very closely with Metro Broadcast to offer and source broadcast equipment that would meet fully with the company and its client’s needs. The equipment selected by Metro included Sony HXC-100 Cameras channels fitted with Canon HD Lenses, supported with Vinten Tripods whilst the production unit was fitted with Panasonic & Ikegami monitoring, Panasonic production switching & Imagine Communications routing as the main stay products.

The delivery of the equipment to Metro proved a great challenge for Gearhouse Broadcast.   The recent effects of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami made it increasingly difficult for Gearhouse to deliver the equipment in time due to limited availability and shortage of broadcast equipment.  To avoid any disappointment from Metro and to ensure their project deadline was met, Gearhouse Broadcast had loaned much of the equipment from its extensive inventory of rental stock held until Gearhouse were able to completely fulfill the order.

Mary Metcalfe, Managing Director at Metro said “it was a pleasure to deal with Gearhouse Broadcast both from a perspective of their technical expertise and also their helpful and flexible attitude with regards to “loan” equipment ensuring that we could keep to all our deadlines.”

As a leading reseller, Gearhouse Broadcast have supplied broadcast equipment to many other broadcast markets including Studios, Broadcasters, Outside Broadcast, production and Post Production companies as well as educational, corporate and commercial markets.
