Switching Codes

This time of year marks a change of football codes for Gearhouse Broadcast, from Seven’s AFL coverage to Fox Sports’ A-League telecast.

Fox Sports broadcasts over 120 A-League games, utilising 11 cameras. On-field and studio hosting positions and (regularly) on-camera commentary makes for a dynamic broadcast. Fox Sports adds colour to the coverage with point-of-view cameras in the locker rooms, and in the nets. The locker room cameras are remotely controlled HD cameras that provide crystal clear, fly-on-the-wall vision of the teams as they go through their preparation. Gearhouse uses Sony BRC-700 and Camera Corps Q-Ball models.

Bigger games feature cameras in the nets, and Gearhouse employs the Toshiba IK-HD1. These cameras are especially handy when putting together replay packages, providing an interesting perspective as the goalkeeper lunges for the ball.

Fox Sports’ telecast brings the A-League to viewers with world-class production values, and Gearhouse Broadcast is pleased to be a part of it. For the full range of equipment that is available for hire, please visit our rental section.
