Gearhouse supplies unilateral facilities for ITV’s EURO 2016 coverage

Gearhouse Broadcast, a leading supplier of specialist broadcast solutions, has installed unilateral facilities within the International Broadcast Centre (IBC) at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles in Paris for several leading rights holders including ITV which shares the UK’s rights for the tournament.

For this install, a redundant MADI network has been constructed to ensure a stable broadcasting environment. ITV uses this network to take incoming match feeds from the venues and add its own mix before sending them to London Studios for playout.

“Both in and outside of the IBC, the scale of what we’ve done for Euro 2016 is massive, but all the while we’ve had to ensure we stay on the right side of complex local regulations,” said Ed Tischler, head of projects at Gearhouse Broadcast. “There’s not many that could handle a job of this size, let alone to the high standards we’ve achieved.”

UEFA Euro 2016 runs from 10 June to 10 July in France and features 24 of Europe’s leading international football teams.


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.
