While live events are made by outstanding athletic performances and the atmosphere created by the spectators, they are often best remembered by the skilful, sometimes humorous, and occasionally even poetic, abilities of the professional commentator.

No football fan will ever forget Kenneth Wolstenholme’s immortal “… they think it’s all over. It is now!”, nor Martin Tyler’s more recent ‘Aguero moment’.

At Gearhouse Broadcast, we like to think we’re playing a small part in keeping these legendary memories coming. To complement our equipment rental, OB and systems integration offerings, we’ve developed a complete commentary infrastructure service for live sports events.

It’s a versatile commentary solution that gives rights-holders the ability to deliver fully bespoke broadcasts to their audiences either on-site at the stadium or from a remote location – while keeping down production costs.

The service uses real-time audio-over-IP networking technology, giving us the ability to provide a fully flexible IP contribution network that cuts out the need to patch in each commentator manually via ageing ISDN lines. In short, our fully customisable commentary service keeps everyone on the ball.

Take a bow, son.


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.
