Trickbox TV stream doctors discussion as they launch a Virtual Events service amid pandemic

23rd April 2020

Trickbox TV launched their new Virtual Events service by streaming discussion of COVID-19 with medical conferencing provider, Reachora.

On the development of their new Virtual Events, Trickbox TV reached out to Reachora Ltd, who were keen to ensure the quality of their live stream. Reachora supports the teaching of recent medical research by broadcasting lectures and presentations alongside video straight from hospitals. 
The medical profession relies on shared knowledge to plan effective responses to threats so in light of the recent pandemic, video and sound quality were more important than ever.  Trickbox set up and managed a live streaming service, supporting a heavy-use of GFX and PiPS, as doctors in Boston and Belfast used diagrams and stats to explain the effects of COVID-19 on the cardiovascular system. 
The stream was a success, and the satisfaction was resounding. Liam Laminman, Trickbox’s MD commented, ‘While a new service always brings a sense of achievement, we were particularly honoured to launch our first live event in such an important context. In whatever small way, we all want to have a part to play supporting our key workers’.

Trickbox TV hosts live Brexit coverage in front of striking City of London skyline.

3rd February 2020

Trickbox TV championed its versatility with simultaneous live broadcasts of Brexit coverage on Friday 31 January, for two separate broadcasters in neighbouring studios.

Interest in Trickbox’s Tower Bridge TV studios initially arose due to its location and views of Tower Bridge, City Hall and the City of London. A terrestrial UK broadcaster hired one of the facilities studios, complete with full technical support from Trickbox. A European broadcaster hired the second studio, also with technical support. Both studios broadcast live throughout the evening as the UK left the EU.
A studio director reflected on the success of the broadcast, “Thanks to Andy Yates and everyone at Trickbox that helped make the show run so smoothly. We were all very happy with the result. It’s a great location, everyone was extremely flexible and helpful, and the professional approach from Trickbox was appreciated. We’ve done two successful broadcasts from the studio and hope to do more.”
Tickbox TV’s Head of Live, James O’Farrell said, “Our studios provided perfect backdrops for such a momentous and historic occasion. I’m immensely proud of our team, for delivering two simultaneous live broadcasts.”
