Gearhouse Broadcast Provide UEFA Euro 2012™ Stadia Cable Installations

Posted on:

International Broadcast Solutions provider Gearhouse Broadcast is to provide the multilateral and unilateral cable installation for the entire UEFA EURO 2012™ tournament.  The contract has been awarded by UEFA who is managing UEFA EURO 2012™ host broadcast operations directly.

The broadcast contract involves installing over 880 kilometres of cable across the eight stadium venues throughout the host nations of Poland and Ukraine.  Gearhouse Broadcast selected Draka cables and will be using a variety of cable types including Triax, Video, Audio, Cat 5, 12 core single mode fibres and SMPTE camera cable in varying lengths.

The cable installation is a huge project in terms of scale and commenced in April and will complete by 20th May. It will then take approximately 20 days to terminate around 100 kilometres of cable per venue with the various connectors. Two Wiremen per venue will be responsible for this termination and then all connections will be tested by the Technical Operation Centre Broadcast Engineers prior to any connections being made.

Andre Nel, Broadcast Engineering and Technical Manager for UEFA TV Production said, “Gearhouse Broadcast delivered the cable installation solutions for the UEFA EURO 2004™ and UEFA EURO 2008™ tournaments, so we were more than confident in their abilities to provide a first class cable installation and solution for the 2012 tournament”.

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.
