Australia’s Gearhouse Broadcast Standardizes on Riedel Artist Intercom Systems

WUPPERTAL, Germany — Aug. 7, 2013 — Riedel Communications, provider of pioneering real-time video, audio, data, and communications networks, today announced that Australia’s Gearhouse Broadcast Pty Ltd is continuing to base all of its outside broadcast (OB) units on the Riedel Artist digital matrix intercom system. Installed across five OB trucks so far with two more slated for release in 2014, the Riedel systems serve as the core communications platform and integrated commentary/announce solution for Gearhouse’s mobile and remote productions. As early adopters of the Artist system, Gearhouse Broadcast holds Australia’s largest complement of OB-deployed Riedel systems.

“We continue to choose the Artist system for its overall capabilities, the power and flexibility of its software, and the superior audio quality assured by internal digital audio routing,” said Stephen Edwards, head of engineering at Gearhouse Broadcast Pty Ltd. “We can easily merge and expand Artist systems across multiple OB trucks and facilities, and their integration with Lawo audio desks gives us the benefit of sharing signals and resources between the two systems.”

Located in Sydney and Melbourne, Gearhouse Broadcast Pty Ltd is a leader in HD OB technology. Its ever-growing fleet currently consists of seven HD units of various sizes and two SD units. The company’s OB business covers a wide range of sporting and entertainment events, most notably the Australian Rules Football (AFL) for Network 7, Super 15 Rugby, A-League Football for Fox Sports, and V8 Supercars for V8 Supercars Pty Ltd. The two latest OB trucks to be equipped with Riedel’s Artist intercom systems, HD5 and HD6, feature identical 192-port systems comprising a combined Artist 128 and Artist 64 system in a two-node configuration.

The Artist system also is in use at the U.K.’s Gearhouse Broadcast Ltd, which is part of the Gravity Media Group along with Gearhouse Broadcast Australia. The U.K. operation has already integrated five Artist systems for international projects and mobile fly-away systems.

“As part of Gravity Media, the Gearhouse Broadcast businesses represent one of the biggest content production groups in the world, and it’s great that Riedel has its support,” said Cameron O’Neill, solution manager at Riedel Communications. “We’re working with the companies on a number of projects to make sure that, both with and without traditional OB units, they can deliver new and exciting content to TV and second-screen audiences.”
