Christmas on Oxford Street comes alive with Trickbox TV
Capital Radio DJs Dave Berry and Lisa Snowden presented the switch-on of the 2015 Oxford Street Christmas lights by global superstar Kyle Minogue to a street full of thousands of fans. Trickbox TV provided multi-camera coverage for the glittering festive event that took place on 1st November 2015.
On the day, Trickbox TV rigged and built a temporary flyaway in a tent on the street itself, providing a feed to a Sky uplink truck. The setup included five Sony HDC-2500 camera channels and a jimmy JIb. The media was sent to broadcasters immediately after the event, ensuring a fast turnaround time.
“It was a privilege to help broadcast the big moment when 445 gold baubles lit up the busiest street in London,” commented Trickbox TV’s Managing Director, Liam Laminman. “As a time sensitive and high profile event, ensuring smooth and efficient multi-camera coverage was paramount, and everything went off without a hitch.”
Alongside the festive ice-skating arena, further entertainment during the day on Oxford Street included an exclusive performance of the musical, Matilda, and music from Fleur East, Foxes, Gabrielle Aplin and X-factor winner Ben Haenow.
