New season, new system
It's the Monday after the first race of the new F1 season, and we're looking back on a week where Lewis Hamilton started 2015 in the same vein of form in which he finished 2014. As for us, we were at Albert Park working for Gearhouse Broadcast and Sky Sports on an entirely new system - using Abode Premiere Pro with EVS integration via IP Link, and storage from our friends at Pixit Media and ERA. It's a system that we're well-versed in after our own work with the same equipment on Sky's Darts coverage. Particularly impressive are the new expanding 'pods' for this season, which minimise rig and derig times and allow for far less air freight - the most expensive part of any F1 broadcaster's bottom line! It was great to be back in Melbourne, a city I always love to spend time in - it's been a second home for me so far this year!
