Gearhouse Broadcast Confirms Commitment to EVS with Multi-Million Deal
Gearhouse Broadcast has confirmed its long-term commitment with EVS solutions for production servers and associated systems. The terms of the agreement include a mix of new and upgraded systems, allowing Gearhouse Broadcast to be at the cutting edge of live production technology.
Among EVS’ top clients, Gearhouse Broadcast is extending its existing comprehensive range and inventory of servers, which includes 57 latest generation XT2+ Servers and supports IPDirectors, XFiles, and XHubs, with the addition of 20 new XT3 servers introduced by the Belgian manufacturer at last April’s NAB Show in Las Vegas. The new XT3 server offers eight full configurable video channels with 96 audio ports and six 3D channels. It’s the first system to natively support all popular codecs without requiring hardware changes.
In addition, this transaction includes the full upgrade of their existing rental fleet of EVS systems, including IPDirector content management suites and XF2 media storage.
Gearhouse Broadcast’s headquarters are located in the U.K. with operating offices in Australia, U.S., Qatar, and India. With a large inventory, the company offers a range of solutions and delivers broadcast solutions for all types of live broadcast events, including football tournaments, Olympic Games, major reality television shows, and music concerts.
Chief Executive Officer of Gearhouse Broadcast John Newton commented, “Our contract with a broadcasting equipment leader such as EVS places us at the forefront of live production technology rental operations. It allows us to meet demanding broadcast requirements for current and future live operations anywhere globally.”
Head of APAC, EMEA & Events at EVS Luc Doneux said, “EVS is very enthusiastic with the success of its new live production solutions recently introduced at NAB. The XT3 platform was conceived to keep up with live production solutions, offering unrivalled flexibility and a real path to future sports broadcast operations.”
