New Look Production Fleet On The Move

HD1 Audio2

Posted on:

Gearhouse Broadcast is expanding its facilities, utilising progressive technologies to meet the diverse requirements of the ever-evolving television industry. The company’s fleet includes a multitude of versatile HD production vehicles that provide the highest quality vision and audio, with a robust and reliable signal flow and superior crew comfort.

The trucks were designed by Gearhouse Broadcast’s team of senior broadcast engineers, in collaboration with specialised industry providers including Sony, Gerling, Canon, Lawo and Riedel.

HD1 is a 24-camera super truck: a double-expanding semi-trailer that supports 24 cabled cameras. It regularly facilitates Fox Sports outside broadcasts and is renowned for its luxurious and spacious interior, which can sit 27 staff members. HD1 was recently displayed at the SMPTE conference, where over 700 people were shown through the truck over three days.

Just a few months old, the Melbourne-based HD2 is closely related to HD1. It is equipped for both HD and SD broadcasts, and was designed with the Seven Network’s AFL coverage in mind. It comfortably accommodates 30 staff in climate-controlled conditions. The truck’s 28-camera capacity will be utilised when Seven ramps up production for the AFL Finals series.

HD4 is one of Gearhouse Broadcast’s mid-sized vehicles, fitted with a single-side expansion compartment. HD4 takes 16 HD cameras, and has four EVS’s and three VTRs. Fresh from an extensive upgrade, HD4 is a favourite among operators and offers serious value to clients.

HD1, HD2 and HD4 all feature Sony vision mixers, audio by Lawo and Riedel Artist communications systems.

HD3 boasts five EVS and four VTR machines, seven production positions, a Euphonix audio mixer and the RTS Adam comms system. The truck can hold 17 crew members, including seven in the two-tiered production area. This vehicle will also be sporting a new look when it starts the A-League season in October.

In addition to these HD facilities, GHB has a number of SD vehicles and fly-away rigs in operation, to cater for budgets at every level.
