ITV Studios has awarded broadcast solutions company Gearhouse Broadcast the contract for I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here series 9!
Gearhouse Broadcast will provide ITV Studios with technical and broadcast facilities for series 9 of the production using flyaway facilities which will create a large Production gallery, an MCR area, a CCU area, a VTR/EVS Room, two big Audio Control rooms and a Comms area.
Helen Kruger Bratt ITV Production Executive said “We’re looking forward to working with Gearhouse Broadcast again on Series 9. It’s no mean feat having to produce over 40 hours of live programming over 3 weeks from the Australian bush. We have reality cameras filming 24/7 out in the jungle in all weathers and terrain: torrential rain, hail storms and lightning strikes can be frequent occurrences in the Australian Outback.”
Eamonn Dowdall, Gearhouse Broadcast Managing Director said “We are looking forward to returning to the jungle for Series 9 of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here. Once again we will be presented with many challenges working in the tough jungle climate but we are confident that we have the experience and expertise to deliver the technical facilities required to meet ITV’s needs.”
Working with the latest technology including Sony MVS vision mixers and a Calrec Omega with blue fin audio desk Gearhouse Broadcast will use over eighty cameras with many speciality models to ensure extensive coverage of all the jungle action which will be broadcast on both ITV 1 and ITV 2. A technical team will be supplied to provide onsite engineering support and project management.
