Welcome

Gearhouse has provided broadcast services around Australia since 1999 from its bases in Sydney and Melbourne.   We specialise in Outside Broadcast, Project Solutions, Event Communications and Systems Integration as well as dry hire equipment rental.

Gearhouse is a leading supplier of broadcast solutions to broadcasters and production companies around the world and our impressive list of clients includes Fox Sports, Network 10, V8 Media, Seven Network, ESPN and Fremantle Media.

We own a large fleet of OB trucks, DSNG vehicles, mini-OBs and fly-away options housed at our production offices across the globe from the UK through the Middle East to Australia and beyond.  In addition to our core fleet we are able to design and build bespoke facilities tailored precisely to any production’s particular requirements.

We have an ever-growing OB fleet which currently consists of seven HD supertrucks, two mid-size HD units and one SD unit.   They are used for a wide range of sporting and entertainment events, most notably the AFC Asian Cup, V8 Supercars, the Madonna ‘Rebel Heart’ Sydney concert, Super 15 Rugby the Taylor Swift ‘1989’ concert, the NBL and A-League Football for Fox Sports and the ANZ Netball Championships.

Our fleet of OB trucks has recently been expanded with the launch of HD9, a hybrid HD supertruck; HD8, a native 4K supertruck and three new state-of-the-art 30-camera HD OB supertrucks: HD5, HD6 and HD7. These trucks have all been designed with Australian broadcasting requirements and workflows in mind, setting standards for efficient layouts, by providing larger working areas and as well as delivering more processing power.

Our dry hire business stocks a full range of the latest broadcast facilities and we offer one of Australia’s largest inventories of broadcast equipment, including the latest 4K, HD and SD broadcast camera systems, lenses, VTRs, EVS workflow solutions, graphics tools, radio cameras, audio, monitors and peripherals.

Our project specialists deliver tailored broadcast solutions for major televised sporting events and reality television. Gearhouse has lead projects such as the Australian Open tennis (HB Technical Facilities provider) and programmes including I’m a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! for Granada Australia, X-Factor, My Kitchen Rules, House Rules and Spelling Bee.

Gearhouse Broadcast's continuous expansion and investment has placed it as one of the leading OB facilitators in Australia and fulfils many of the demands for most of Australia's key producers and television networks.

Gearhouse is proud to have supported many of its clients for long periods of time. Key clients include most of Australia’s leading producers and production houses, cable television networks and the majority of the free-to-air broadcasters.
