Gearhouse Broadcast Australia and UK were involved in the recent Rugby World Cup in New Zealand, collaborating with OB facilitator On Site Broadcast (OSB).
The two companies worked together to seamlessly integrate their technologies, which was aided by their shared history and familiarity. OSB NZ is the sister company of OSB Australia, which Gearhouse Broadcast acquired in 2010.
Gearhouse provided facilities and crewing for all matches broadcast from Wellington’s Westpac stadium, including 20 HD camera channels, four Super Slow Motion camera chains, several EVS systems and an XDCam ENG camera.
Obviously the on-field competition created some friendly rivalry between the two companies, and Gearhouse Broadcast Australia looks forward to the Wallabies reclaiming their rightful crown when they next meet the All Blacks.
