"Trickbox TV recently hired a Boxx Meridian system from Zero Division for a challenging two month outside broadcast project with Channel 4’s Deal or No Deal. The full Boxx Meridian’s telemetry and tally system was invaluable at providing a faultless, wireless system for the steadicam.
Boxx's wireless products are a perfect fit with the complex projects we work on, and Zero Division’s service and support echoes this."

I have recently graduated from Ravensbourne University after spending three years studying on the Broadcast Technology course. During my time at Ravensbourne we have carried out numerous live productions, where on the majority of occasions, we have required some form of wireless video link. Because of this, we have had the opportunity to explore a variety of RF solutions, ranging from complex systems to budget packages.
The Boxx Meridian Broadcast System's we used during our most recent degree show completely exceeded our expectations. The simple configuration, complete reliability and good coverage easily competed with some of the systems we had previously used at an incomparable price point.
A link to the student production can be seen at the bottom, where a Boxx Meridian Broadcast System was used on Steadicam, with a portable meridian system used for the autocue return. We had a second broadcast system in use for the roving presentation studio. Ravensbourne is a challenging RF environment during the week of the show and video links have never been this easy. Being broadcast live on Freeview, the reliability of the links was a fundamental factor. At no point during rehearsals or TX did we have a single issue with loss of picture or breakup.
It is also important to say the service provided be Zero Division was excellent. Dealing with the team was a pleasure and the equipment turned up on time, in immaculate condition. We were even treated to some biscuits!

I was recommended to contact Zero Division specifically to source Boxx Meridian Systems, for three multicamera competition day shoots, the whole experience was smooth and helpful even when I ask to hold onto the kit in between shoots this was not too much trouble, highly recommend and would definitely come back should the need arise

Zero Division provides wireless video support for the #FeelingNuts Comedy Night
One Box Television’s Managing Director, Richard Stevenson was approached by Fulwell73 for their programme, Feeling Nuts, part of Channel 4’s Stand Up For Cancer week
The production was hosted by comedian Jack Whitehall to provide entertainment throughout the evening raising awareness of testicular cancer. The shoot required two roaming RF cameras working in a busy nightclub environment. Having previously successfully used 3 Boxx TV RF systems on one show, Zero Division were the natural choice for this challenge. Shot at the O2 London, One Box hired the Boxx TV Meridian Broadcast systems along with the Boxx Full Telemetry and Tally Light systems. An experienced RF engineer was on hand to assist in the set up of the equipment to ensure optimal performance throughout the show, contribution to the complete success of the project.
The event was aired on Channel 4 Friday 24th October 2014.
“The Boxx TV Meridian zero delay system has proven itself time and time again, most recently providing faultless links from 5 on-stage cameras to the vision switching gallery, for the ‘Arcade Fire’ concert at London’s Earls Court 2014.”
Brendan tweeted the attached photo, demonstrating the challenging environment in which the wireless solution performed effortlessly.

Chris Payne of North One Television, producer on the show, had this to say of his experience with Zero Division and our hire services:
“In order to produce Crash Course for ITV, we required latency free, HD transmission from a moving vehicle at 60 mph in order to remotely control and orchestrate a highly precise car crash based stunt. The bespoke system we desired was ambitious and, in an environment where the slightest latency or signal drop out would have proved disastrous, Zero Division’s Zenith system delivered for us. The team were exceptionally friendly, a pleasure to work with and always on the end of the phone to talk the solution through.”

Large format screen and Broadcast specialist Big Screen Media required a remote control Tally and Iris system to control wireless camera links as part of the Queen’s Coronation Festival at Buckingham Palace. After extensive research, Zero Division had the perfect solution- Boxx TV’s Tally & Iris control system.
Alex Hall, Operations Director for Big Screen Media commented;-
“We needed an easy to use out the Boxx RF Iris control solution for several wireless camera links as part of the Coronation Festival Gala show at Buckingham Palace, the Boxx TV Tally & Iris control system fitted the bill perfectly. It was really straight forward to setup and even with the transmit antenna mounted some 150m from the stage, both systems performed flawlessly throughout each of the shows. It’s a great system and a very cost effective alternative to full RF telemetry Paint systems when all you require is remote Iris control and Tally. The team at Zero Division are incredibly helpful and knowledgeable and we would highly recommend their products.”
