Switching Codes

Aus Football2

Posted on:

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.


On 31 October 2019, the four leading broadcast and production houses Gearhouse Broadcast, Hyperactive Broadcast, Input Media and Chief Entertainment owned by Gravity Media Group started trading under the brand name of ‘Gravity Media’. All Gravity Media companies around the world are making this transition and will now go to market as a single brand with a bold new look and purpose.
