Game Creek Video is
a mobile television production company
that specializes in remote sports and high-end
events. We have a fleet of 19 mobile
production units, and in the course of
a year cover numerous sporting events
throughout the United States and Canada.
Some of these include the World Series, Super
Bowl and the Daytona 500.
During the past 21 years, we’ve worked
with some of the world’s largest television
networks, production companies and
news organizations to provide the most
comprehensive, state-of-the-art mobile production
For several years, we’ve aggressively
developed new facilities to ensure that
our trucks are equipped with the most advanced
cutting-edge technology. As signal
routing is crucial to what we do, our production
vehicles have one very important
component in common: Evertz routing systems
backed up by Evertz infrastructure
components. To date, we have installed 14
Evertz EQX high-density video routers in

The robust and reliable nature of Evertz
signal routing platforms is second to none
and this has led us to equip all our fleet vehicles
constructed since 2010 with Evertz
routers—as well as the company’s modular
and control solutions. These installations
include our latest vehicle, the “RiverHawk,”—
which just rolled out this June
and will be used for CBS NFL broadcasts this fall—and also our soon-to-be-released
“Spirit” mobile production facility.
The Evertz equipment package in RiverHawk
includes a 576 x 1152 EQX core
video routing system, Evertz EMR 4096 x
4096 audio router, Evertz Magnum unified
control system, and a wide array of Evertz
modular gear. And we’re also using Evertz’
VistaLINK SNMP monitoring system to
keep tabs on everything.
SAVINGS ON ALL SIDES
The EQX router delivers high-quality
broadcast signal routing with support for
signals ranging from 3 Mbps all the way up
to 3 Gbps and is contained in a compact
26RU frame. The system has significantly reduced
the amount of cabling in our trucks,
resulting in less weight, more space and
lower installation and operating costs. The
Evertz routing system has become a standard
component in our production facilities.
With Evertz’ routing and control systems
at the core, we are extremely confident in
the operation and reliability of our mobile
units. Evertz’ EQX, EMR and Magnum routing
products are among the most powerful
production tools in the new RiverHawk
and we expect to rely on them heavily.
With Evertz routing systems and modular
gear support systems built into our
trucks, we know that we are consistently
delivering the most advanced, state-of-the-art
fleet of mobile production units possible,
and that we are working with an accomplished
and reliable team of experts to
help ensure that the some of the biggest
events happening in the world are going
to be televised flawlessly.
