Trickbox TV Further Expands Business Opening Doors to New London Warehouse Headquarters

3rd October 2017

Trickbox TV, a leading supplier of equipment and services for studio and location multi-camera productions for broadcast, video production, webcasting and live events, has announced a major expansion of its facilities. The company is this week opening the doors to its new warehouse HQ in South East London, close to its fully equipped HD Tower Bridge TV Studios.

The new facility allows the company to further expand its broadcast and production services business, which provides broadcast quality 4K/UHD and HD bespoke flyaway solutions. With more room for kit, Trickbox TV will be able to provide clients with even greater choice and a faster service when choosing equipment for outside broadcast jobs, events and live video streaming.

“We’re really excited to announce this move to larger premises,” says Liam Laminman, Trickbox TV Managing Director. “The company has been consistently growing over the past seven years and this move further highlights our strong commitment to the outside broadcast market. We look forward to sharing some further announcements in the coming weeks.”

Trickbox TV Provides OB Flyaway Solution To ITV Daytime For This Morning Live Wedding

23rd August 2017

Trickbox TV, a leading supplier of equipment and services for studio and location multi-camera productions for broadcast, video production, webcasting and live events, has announced that it recently provided a range of outside broadcast services to ITV Daytime for This Morning’s live wedding show.

Shot at Europe’s tallest building, The View from the Shard in London, the wedding was granted to a highly deserving couple, Sonya Keating and Paul Brough. It’s the first wedding that The View from the Shard has ever hosted, with the ceremony taking place 800 feet high, on the 72nd floor. Trickbox TV supplied ITV with a multi-camera fly-away solution that included six HD fibre camera channels, and a fly-away control area with positions for the ITV Production team and Trickbox engineers.
 
Trickbox began rigging the show the night before and continued through the night with the first rehearsal taking place at 6am on the morning of the show. The remit included camera fibre cable drops on multiple floors, to allow for quick repos for different sections of the programme.
 
“We were very excited to win this project and work with ITV’s This Morning team,” says Liam Laminman, Trickbox TV Managing Director. “Live TV is high-pressure but it’s an environment that we’re used to working in and we have the skills and the experience to ensure a successful production. Broadcasting from different floors of a building 800 feet in the air also has it challenges but it was a spectacular day that will be remembered by the families, the team and the viewers.”

Trickbox TV, a leading supplier of equipment and services for studio and location multi-camera productions for broadcast, video production, webcasting and live events, has announced that it has provided a range of outside broadcast services to Eden Sessions. Based at the famous Eden Project site in Cornwall, Eden Sessions is one of the most spectacular outdoor live music events, featuring a series of one-day concerts from world-class artists during June and July 2017, annually.

 
Eden Sessions contracted Trickbox TV to provide a multi camera set-up, including live vision mixing with talkback, tally lights and a 32-foot track, which runs across the front of the stage. The Trickbox kit was installed onsite and remained at the location for the four-week duration of live shows from renowned artists including Bastille, Madness and Van Morrison. The concerts will be shown at a later date on BBC iPlayer.
 
“We have a lot of experience providing outside broadcast facilities at music venues and festivals across the UK,” says Liam Laminman, Trickbox TV Managing Director. “The pressure is on at these events, organisers have to plan meticulously and they want to know that they are getting the best OB service and ultimately the highest quality material. That is what they get with us.”

Trickbox TV think outside the box for Deal or No Deal on Tour

12th December 2016

Trickbox TV, the flyaway multi-camera services provider, is proud to announce it supplied Remarkable Television, part of Endemol Shine with specialist outside broadcasting facilities to take the infamous game show, Deal or No Deal, to 10 iconic and unusual locations across the UK. 

For the first time in the show’s history, Noel Edmonds, the notorious phone, 22 red boxes and The Banker travelled across the country filming over a six-week period. The first episode will be aired on 12th December 2016 on Channel 4, at 4pm. 

Trickbox TV overcame a number of challenges with complicated locations including access restrictions and a limited timeframe onsite, which resulted in the team adapting the technical setup for each location. The locations included: The Eden Project in Cornwall, The Trafford Centre in Manchester, on the moving Flying Scotsman train, a cave at Wookey Hole, Warwick Castle, Longleat Safari Park, Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow, top of the Blackpool Tower, Alexandra Palace and finally, on board a Boeing 737. 

The production company, Remarkable Television selected Trickbox TV to provide a bespoke flyaway solution as traditional outside broadcast trucks would not have worked with all of the locations. A spokesperson at Remarkable Television said “With a run of almost 3,000 episodes and more than a decade on UK screens, these games are set to be some of the most exciting and truly unique yet. Trickbox TV allowed us to be creative with the tour’s locations and the sky was quite literally the limit.

Trickbox TV had to ensure it was able to provide Remarkable Television with a solution that enabled rigging, recording and de-rigging within a 12-hour period. The multi-camera facilities included up to seven cameras, with one wireless camera system for a Steadicam and different lenses to suit each location. Trickbox TV also provided mirrored recording backups for each programme to limit onsite DIT, plus offer a level of redundancy for the media. 

Liam Laminman, Managing Director at Trickbox TV, said; “Taking a show that has been in a studio for over 10 years into an outside broadcast environment was always going to be a challenge. It was really important that at no point, would the production team, crew or Noel, feel like the facilities that Trickbox TV provided would be a compromise from the studio facilities that they had been used to”.  

NFL Draft comes live from London

28th April 2016

Trickbox TV is pleased to provide broadcast studio space for the Jacksonville Jaguars in London for the second year running. The Jacksonville Jaguars’ fifth round selection in the 2016 NFL Draft will take place on Saturday 30th April from Tower Bridge TV Studios, providing an iconic London backdrop to the Draft. 

Each year, NFL teams develop their player rosters by selecting college players.  This takes place over a three-day period known as the NFL Draft. For Florida’s Jacksonville Jaguars, the only team to have two home bases, choices are announced not just at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, but also in London, a city in which the team has committed to play one home game each year until at least 2020.
 
The Jaguars’ use of London reflects the team’s continued commitment to honour its UK fan base after making NFL history last year by having draft picks announced outside the US for the first time. The tradition is upheld this year, as a Jacksonville Jaguars fan has been chosen to announce the fifth round draft selection from Tower Bridge TV Studios in a live broadcast for the US NFL Network and its production partner, Sky. Millions of viewers worldwide will witness the announcement from the lucky fan, who will be joined by Jaguars player Michael Bennett, a draft selection from last year. 
 
“The increasing support from the NFL UK fan base is evident and it’s great that Trickbox TV can help to be part of that spirit, providing a backdrop that represents London at its finest,” said Liam Laminman, Managing Director of Trickbox TV. 
 
Mark Lamping, President at Jacksonville Jaguars, said: “The Draft plays a huge role in the Jaguars’ preparations for the new season.  We were delighted to be able to make history last year by taking a Draft announcement to London.  Given our extended commitment to play in London every year until at least 2020, it seems fitting that once again we’re giving one of our UK fans the chance to share in the excitement of the Draft and the NFL.”
 
During the 2016 season, the Jaguars will head to Wembley Stadium to play the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday October 2. For more information about the Jacksonville Jaguars visit www.jaguars.com/UK
