Gearhouse Broadcast announces the completion of an installation for sports federation UEFA at the organisation’s HQ in Nyon, Switzerland. Gearhouse Broadcast was commissioned to upgrade UEFA’s Match Center and Master Control Room in preparation for the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League tournaments for the 2012/2013 season.

The new installation consisted of installing bespoke furniture, new cabling and technical equipment.  The project involved an eight week planning period followed by four weeks of onsite installation, integration and commissioning.

In terms of personnel for the project, Gearhouse Broadcast provided a Senior Project Engineer, three Wiremen, two Riggers, a Custom Control Programmer and a System Programming Engineer.

The equipment selected to carry out the modernisation/upgrade included a Miranda NV8280 router, Miranda Multi-viewers, Miranda glue and fibre conversion, Miranda iControl, and Barco LED rear projection seamless screens. Imagine Communications glue was also installed along with a Tektronix waveform monitors and Bel Audio Monitors.  The design and manufacture of the bespoke Command Centre furniture was constructed from Custom Consoles Module-R range of control room furniture.

“Following the original brief from UEFA, Gearhouse Broadcast provided consultancy and project management throughout the contract and carried out the systems integration on site. Technical support is available to UEFA post installation in the form of Gearhouse Broadcast’s after sales support service,” explained Gearhouse Broadcast Chief Operating Officer Kevin Moorhouse.

Andre Nel, Broadcast Engineering and Technical Manager for UEFA TV Production said, “The project needed very specific solutions to match UEFA requirements for match operations and these solutions were delivered in a short turnaround time and to a very high standard. We are extremely satisfied with the technical and operational solutions provided by Gearhouse Broadcast.”
