Ten years at the top for Gearhouse and Britain’s Got Talent


Posted on:

Gearhouse Broadcast, a leading supplier of specialist broadcast solutions, is working on hit ITV talent show Britain’s Got Talent for the tenth year running. Tasked by the show’s sound director, Robert Edwards, with supplying radio microphones, in-ear monitors (IEMs) and on-site technical support, Gearhouse ensures that the show’s contestants, judges and presenters can be tracked throughout the stage and backstage area at London’s Fountain Studios.

The wireless audio workflow Gearhouse provides includes the Sennheiser Digital 9000 system which delivers error-free sound as well as ten SKM 5200 wireless microphones, 24 SK 5212 handheld transmitters for the contestants, 16 EM 3732 dual receiver systems and four SR 2000 IEM monitoring systems.

“Britain’s Got Talent is a well-oiled machine, and is a great example of multiple technology suppliers working alongside each other to help deliver a really polished product,” said Gearhouse Broadcast audio engineer Quay Luu. “We ensure that the production team has quality audio for all areas of the show to give them greater creative choice with what clips they use.”

The final of Britain’s Got Talent took place Saturday 28 May with the winner – magician Richard Jones, taking home £250,000 and a spot on the 2016 Royal Variety Performance.


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.
