Wrap Around Solutions - One Box Bolt Ons

One Box Television

Whatever you're planning, One Box Television has available a wide range of additional equipment designed to meet almost every broadcast need. Whether you are looking for a jib for some stunning shots, a few more talkbacks on the floor, or even ask us to help you source a satellite uplink, we're here to help. There isn't much we've not already done.

Jib

Richard Stevenson has supplied and operated Jimmy Jibs to some of the most well known shows over the last 15 years. Covering every genre, his credits include Last Night of The Proms,  Top of The Pops, The Fast Show, Question of Sport numerous projects for CBBC and Cbeebies including Blue Peter, Tikabilla, SMart, Xchange, Springwatch and more recently, Mr Bloom's Nursery. His Technocrane CV includes the pilot of Who Wants to be A Millionaire and over 100 subsequent shows both in the UK and in Europe.

Vision Control

With the increasing amount of HD shoots, the need for vision control has grown. A custom-made "10u" box allows remote vision control facilities of 5 cameras using our own V-Lock camera boxes. The box docks between camera and battery and gives all facilities down one cable. The "vision box" comes with 5 Sony remote panels, and HD switcher, preview monitors, waveform monitor and HD monitor. The unit also comes with a talkback facility that allows the engineer to talk directly to the lighting director on one private channel, and speak to the director on another.

Lenses

We have a mixture of lenses that suit most projects. From 14:1 to 40:1, the lenses are our own allowing late flexibility in requirements. With a good relationship with the major hire companies, we can always hire something bigger. A 100:1 was called for at Farnborough Air Show providing incredible close ups of all the aircraft.  

Talkback

One Box Television now own two “CT24” talkback units. Using a mix of 6-switch desktop panels with full OLED labelling of sources and traditional 4 wire feeds, even the most complex of shows can be done using the simple PC programming software to see all levels individually. For smaller projects, a custom-made 1u unit allows three people access to camera talkback and three other sources (e.g. FM, Presenter, Sound)

Graphics Playout

One Box Television have invested in a number of “Playback Pro” systems and associated Apple computers. With the ability to play full Pro Res files smoothly, the kit has been used to feed screens at Wembley, The Royal Albert Hall, Hammersmith Apollo etc and playing out VTs on numerous live shows including a recent event live to cinemas. Call us for more information.

Floor Monitors

One Box Television can supply a wide range of monitors for all applications. From full HD OLED monitors for the lighting director to a 50” plasma on wheels, from autocue to audience, just give us a call and we can supply. Many events involve feeding video walls, projectors etc which can be done from a separate output on the mixer if required.

DVD

DVDs are a thing of the past at One Box Television. Always trialling new kit, we now have a device that will record your project to 8 USB sticks simultaneously so you can walk away the minute the wrap is called and watch it in the office or even on the way home. The files play in a normal Quick Time player. So many computers don’t even have a DVD drive any more, this is definitely the way forward!

Satellite Uplinks

Working closely with providers such as SIS Live and Links Broadcast, our unique fibre kits allow us to take the One Box output and carry over several hundred metres to a satellite truck parked outside. This allows you to concentrate on producing your show from inside the venue with the One Box housed close to the action.

Live Streaming

Broadcast your event online. We can deliver your show to a global audience managing all elements of the broadcast. From the player setup and hosting to onsite live encoding & remote satellite internet connections, One Box Television looks after it all to ensure a successful broadcast.
