Boxx TV will be celebrating ten years in providing wireless solutions for professional cameras at NAB this year and will showcase the Atom system, the latest in their zero delay range, along with a set of inventive components to provide a comprehensive Video Assist solution where wireless is a requirement.
The Atom is a small, powerful wireless solution offering High Definition video with Zero Delay over ranges of 600m or more, for live filming or productions where roving cameras work alongside cabled cameras. At just 111 x 71 x 25mm, it weighs 253g and supports HD-SDI & HDMI inputs. The Atom is designed to operate out of the box without configuration, and with instant real-time channel selection.
To go with the Atom, Boxx TV offers a range of components to configure a complete, flexible, scalable Video Assist solution with an unlimited number of receivers. In particular, Boxx will be showing a dual channel directors monitor, which will be new at NAB this year.
Boxx TV created its original zero delay HD product, the Meridian, as the first challenger to high cost RF camera systems. Meridian was soon chosen for iconic productions such as the Emmy Awards, The Brit Awards, the Vancouver Winter Olympics, Australias got Talent, and Masterchef Australia, where it changed the way shows were made by enabling shooting in spaces where it was not feasible or safe to run a cable. Meanwhile, Boxx TVs long range wireless product, Zenith, has been used on shows such as Top Gear Festival and Driving Wars.
Today, the Meridian comes with features and accessories such as camera control, Iris and Tally, and remains the standard for Steadicam, UAV, or any kind of roving cameras used in broadcast, film and video setups. In an increasingly congested licence-exempt spectrum, the Meridian comes into its own by using a much narrower channel bandwidth than many of the other products on the market thereby increasing the robustness of the signal.
While technology has changed in the last ten years ago, so has the business model, and today Boxx TV is able to offer an aggressive pricing model to its customers for its entire product range via online sales channels.
We have come a long way since we launched our MPEG-2 transmitters at NAB ten years ago. Back then, licence-exempt transmitters were prohibitively expensive and half a second was considered low latency comments Boxx TV CEO Darrell Bilton, RF transmitters have become compact, easy to use, and affordable devices that can be used with confidence for a host of mission critical applications where wireless is a must. It has been my ambition to create a product that will allow people to adopt our technology according to their immediate budget and feature requirements, and then to add components later as needs arise. In the Atom system, every component will work with every other component without pairing and with minimal configuration making it the easiest and most comprehensive solution we have developed to date.
