UK equipment rental, sales, project solutions and systems integration company Gearhouse Broadcast has placed an order with Harris for its high-definition and standard-definition equipment to be used for coverage of the 2006 World Cup in Germany.
This summer, Gearhouse Broadcast will serve as a principal partner in providing technical production facilities to the host broadcaster in 12 cities throughout Germany for the 2006 World Cup, the majority of which will be covered in HD.
Gearhouse Broadcast acquired HD infrastructure products from Harris, including the 6800+ series and Videotek PTM-305 personal test and measurement devices.
The processing platform series provides all core processing and distribution functions in analog, SD, HD and optical formats, offers integrated control and monitoring and is SNMP-friendly.
The battery-powered Videotek PTM-305 is well suited for monitoring field production camera setup or equipment installation and for troubleshooting signal path issues related to analog and standard-definition digital formats. Its features include a video test signal generator, color monitor, waveform/vector scope and an audio analyzer/monitor.
