Gearhouse, one year on

Posted on:

On 1 July 2018, we announced to the world that Proshow Broadcast was joining the Gearhouse Broadcast USA arm of the Gravity Media Group. We can’t believe that was a year ago to the day – and what a year it has been. The past seven months have seen Proshow’s trucks help Gearhouse become North America’s leading multi-camera, remote integration (REMI) production company, delivering a wide variety of content ranging from sports and entertainment shows to news and corporate events.

Gearhouse’s position as the leader in ‘At Home’ centralized productions was cemented in June this year, when it completed its 1,850th REMI production. The milestone was passed at the close of the 2019 US collegiate sports season, where we covered the Washington Huskies vs California Bears in the Pac-12 Baseball.

That baseball game was one of 350 events we cover for PAC-12 Networks each year, as well as 100 events annually for ESPN and countless others including The Oscars, SAG Awards, Latin Grammys and Canada Sevens Rugby.

A typical REMI offers a flexible, modern and durable workflow that’s fast and cost-efficient to deploy. Smaller, purpose-built mobile units can be used at any venue, and only video and audio hardware, alongside comms hardware, a transmission interface and engineering support, are required on-site. Video switching, audio mixing, graphics, replays and show production can all be done ‘at home’ at the broadcast centre. It’s an increasingly popular option, and the perfect complement to our high-end high-def supertrucks.

We look forward to seeing what the next 12 months will bring.

GEARHOUSE BROADCAST HAS BECOME GRAVITY MEDIA

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.
