Trickbox TV introduces new 12-camera PPU
Trickbox TV is continuing its expansion with the launch of a state-of-the-art, bespoke 12-camera portable production unit (PPU) flyaway. The new multi-camera OB solution provides a scalable unit for small to large scale HD and UHD outside broadcast and studio productions including broadcast, corporate, live streaming, events, live music, festivals and conferences.
The expanded PPU flyaway, which can be rigged or de-rigged in minutes, is built to the highest broadcast specification and delivers a cost-effective solution providing all the tools required for a full-scale production without the need for an OB truck. It works with either Sony system camera channels or ‘cine’ style cameras and features: a Ross Video Ultrix video and audio router; Ross Video openGear signal processing; a Ross Video Carbonite vision mixer; and full redundancy including uninterruptible power supplies.
The unit, which builds upon Trickbox TV’s existing PPU flyaway facilities, provides clients with a full range of services for every outside broadcast and temporary studio requirement. Trickbox has recently worked on a range of OB projects such as The Wave, a Primal Media production for channel W; Bananarama and Steps shows for concert films and music documentaries specialists Toward Infinity; Gary Barlow’s recent headline concert for Eden Sessions; and This Morning Live at the NEC Birmingham for ITV Daytime.
“We’re really excited to make this announcement, which is the next step in our company’s expansion,” says Liam Laminman, Trickbox TV Managing Director. “By providing this 12-camera unit, we’re answering the needs of our diverse client base delivering a cost-effective, scalable solution for any kind of production.”
