The Gearhouse Broadcast teams have returned to the UK following the successful completion of the UEFA Nations League semi-finals and final in Portugal.
Working out of the two tournament stadiums in Porto and Guimaraes, the project lasted two weeks, where Gearhouse was responsible for feed quality control and distribution in each venue’s Technical Operations Centre (TOC), as well as the FanTV production for the big screens.
Additionally, Gearhouse was responsible for the Host Commentary system at each venue, providing fully equipped commentary positions and IP codecs for rights holders around the world.
Coverage of the inaugural Nations League has capped off a busy period for our engineers, who’d worked on both the UEFA Europa League final and UEFA Champions League final the previous week. The team now have a brief respite to reacquaint themselves with family, before they head off to support the final EUFA TOC of the year – the Super Cup in Istanbul between Liverpool and Chelsea.
