Boxx Communications Debuts Meridian Lite and Meridian Tallis at NAB

LAS VEGAS, NV—Boxx Communications, the North America headquarters and official reseller for Emmy Award®-winning manufacturer Boxx TV, unveiled Boxx TV’s latest available technology, including the Meridian Lite and the Meridian Tallis, at its booth (C7219) at the NAB Show®. The annual conference will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, April 14-19. Boxx’s Meridian product line is used on a wide variety of projects from the upcoming James Bond film Skyfall, to the live Brit Awards, and Emmy Award-winning Modern Family, among others.

“Our demonstrations at NAB will illustrate the ongoing development and innovation in the product line,” notes Boxx Communications Owner Mark Walker. “The team at Boxx is constantly in the field, working events, in venues, and with broadcasters. Our understanding is derived from hands-on experience and drives us to continually evolve and improve our products. What Boxx offers is an incredible option for the industry in terms of functionality and affordability. In many, many tests, we have beaten head-to-head ratings with the more expensive, and in some cases more well-known, competitors.”

The Meridian Lite is an affordable, entry-level RF HD camera system with zero-delay transmission for live broadcast and videography. The less than $10,000 price puts the technology in reach of more budget-conscious users, and is upgradable to Boxx TV’s full-featured, high-end Meridian wireless RF HD camera system. With its lightweight, wireless transmitter, Meridian Lite supports full 4:2:2 video including all formats up to 1080/30p, and delivers uncompressed, artifact-free broadcast video and sound in synch.
Conference goers will also get their first look at the Meridian Tallis, an iris control and tally indicator accessory that provides tally and iris only control, and complements any brand of broadcast camera on a wireless rig or Steadicam. The product is small enough to mount on any camera and the control knob gives accurate high-resolution control to the iris. As Tallis only controls the lens, there is no black level or red/blue gain control, but at a price of around $3,500, it opens up a solution to productions where iris only control is sufficient.

“The Meridan Tallis solves the tricky problem of providing iris control for a variety of different manufacturers’ cameras by tapping directly into the lens to adjust the aperture,” explains Boxx TV co-founder Scott Walker. “There simply isn’t another solution as this price point to control the iris on wireless camera rigs. This enables you to match the brightness of the video from a wireless camera with other cameras.”

In addition to the Meridian Lite and the Meridian Tallis, Boxx will also be demonstrating the Meridian System which provides 4:2:2 uncompressed video with zero delay; the Cobalt system which offers an alternative to COFDM systems with a bi-directional packet acknowledgement protocol that offers extremely robust transmissions; the Cerulean which delivers the quality and reliability of full HD uncompressed fiber link in a cable-free, wireless environment; and a prototype of a lightweight h.264 HD system designed for UAV (unmanned aerial vehicles) including a quadcoptor.
