Gearhouse expands its event communications division

Gearhouse Broadcast has expanded its event communications division with the acquisition of leading industry RF, radio mic and IFB specialists Stranger Designs.

This key acquisition now makes Gearhouse Broadcast the only company in Australia that can offer the entire end-to-end comms chain, in particular for live events, sports and reality television.

Jason Owen, Event Communications manager says, “Stranger Designs is a perfect fit for Gearhouse Broadcast Event Comms as they seamlessly complement our comms offering by adding new RF, radio mic and IFB solutions for clients in live events, sports and reality TV.

“This is what the industry has been asking for and we have now delivered it.”

Gearhouse Broadcast is one of the world’s leading providers of communications solutions.

Scaling from the smallest two-way radio hire right up to a multi-venue, multi-technology communications platform, Gearhouse promises the people, inventory and support to deliver a world-class solution.

Rod Stranger, Stranger Designs head says, “I’m delighted that Stranger Designs has now been incorporated into Gearhouse Broadcast’s Event Comms Division.

“There are great synergies between the two companies and as a joint force we can offer a total comms package like no other company in Australia.”

Stranger Designs’ inventory significantly expands Gearhouse comms offering whilst adding, even more, depth to their performance team.

Owen continues, “We will support existing audio, production and broadcast facilitators with a cost-effective means of securing both leading-edge and trusted technology solutions that meet their requirements.

“Stranger Designs has also been instrumental in developing motorsport accessories and solutions over many years.”

“With access to this product range, we will now expand our offering to become Australia’s leading motorsport communications solutions provider.”

Stranger Designs have worked on comms solutions for productions including I’m a Celebrity Get me Outta Here and the Byron Bay Blues Festival.

Owen concluding, “With our size and scope we can now offer a massive comms package to broadcast networks and producers, event production companies, movie houses and new media companies.

“In motorsport alone, we have comms solutions for racetracks, race teams, federations, category managers, and companies that support motorsport such as catering, security and track operations.”

“We understand that some customers want quality and are cost-conscious and some want an uncompromising technical solution, either way, we have a solution that fits.”
