With the first race of the 2015 Formula One season taking place this Sunday in Melbourne, Australia, we’d like to wish Sky Sports and Gearhouse Broadcast all the best with their coverage of the event, for which ERA has provided networking and storage capabilities, based on Dell and PixitMedia.
Sky Sports will be the first broadcaster to use Gearhouse Broadcast’s new lightweight and expandable flyaway production solution, OBPod. Gearhouse is also providing the post-production infrastructure, which features EVS ingest and replay servers and Adobe Premier Pro CC linked to a 500TB Dell SAS Raid storage system on a 10Gb fibre network. The Adobe software will be integrated with EVS IPDirector for ingest control, metadata management, on-the-fly editing and playout scheduling. See the story here.
