Gearhouse Broadcast talks IP, HDR and a modernising market in Televisual’s OB Report

Gearhouse Broadcast’s Ed Tischler has been interviewed by Televisual magazine for its annual OB Report feature. The managing director of the UK arm of the business spoke with journalist Michael Burns on a range of topics including how the outside broadcast industry is modernising, the emergence of HDR productions and how to sensibly make the transition to IP.

On the latter point, Ed says: “IP needs to be more in line with the prices of existing technology, in order to make the transition sensible. When you make engineering changes like this production companies won’t immediately see the advantage, so they’re not going to relate that to an uplift in price. I think also maturity of product is an issue.”

The 2018 edition of the industry-staple report looks at how major technical changes such as UHD, HDR and IP are driving big changes in the outside broadcast market. It appears in the spring 2018 issue of Televisual which is out now.
