2016 has been an extremely busy year for Hyperactive Broadcast. We’ve provided exquisite, top of the line support to broadcasting events such as the 2016 Rio Olympics and Paralympics. We’ve helped broadcast some of the biggest music festivals like Glastonbury and the various Capital Balls. We also provided equipment and technical support to huge blockbusters like ‘Captain America: Civil War’.
All of these jobs have sent our highly skilled team of engineer’s jet setting around the globe. James Fishwick spent three months in Rio while working on this year’s marvellous Olympic Games. During his time spent working there he was able to soak up some of the fantastic Brazilian culture. He even managed to acquire a slight tan.
Our technical engineer Gareth Steven has been travelling around the globe working on the various open tennis tournaments. He began the year in Melbourne Australia where he helped rig and maintain Hyperactive kit and assisted in the broadcasting of the tennis tournament. He then set off to France to follow the tournament, where he again provided expert technical advice and expertise to the French Open broadcast. Gareth has stated that since working at Hyperactive Broadcast he has travelled to more destinations around the globe than he’d ever dreamed he would.
Meanwhile on the equator Hyperactive Broadcasts seasoned technical engineer and Pro Tools expert Simon Tomkinson is making his way through the Ecuadorian jungle with the help of the British Special Forces as he helps to record and capture Channel 4’s ‘SAS are you tough enough’. After completing this Job Simon then jetted off to New York, to work to work on the US Open.
2017 is set to be another year of fantastic travel opportunities for the Hyperactive engineers, with destinations such as Japan and Abu Dhabi on the horizon, we can look forward to many more engineering adventures.
