Confederations Cup and the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa as well

by Gearhouse Broadcast Technical Director Kevin Moorhouse. This year
Gearhouse Broadcast has provided facilities for the Australian Open
Tennis, ATP Tennis Masters Series, the European Football Championship
and the Beijing Olympics. Moorhouse will address how Gearhouse sets
about providing a fail-safe broadcast infrastructure for a major
event; co-ordination with the IBC; converging high-quality HD
contributions for transmission around the world; and managing the
complexities of transmitting 5.1 audio.
