Boxx TV’s Meridian is Behind the Scenes on Oscar(r)-Nominated Films

Django Unchained, Skyfall and Zero Dark Thirty Get Boost from Wireless Technology

(LOS ANGELES, CA) Three of this year’s Academy Award(r)-nominated films chose Boxx TV‘s Meridian Wireless Microwave Broadcast System for reliable, 4:2:2 uncompressed video with zero delay. The Meridian was the system of choice for Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, Sam Mendes’ Skyfall and Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty, capping a busy year for the company headquartered in the UK, along with its reseller Boxx Communications in Los Angeles.

“We are extremely proud that our technology contributed to the amazing stories told in these Oscar(r)-nominated films,” says Scott Walker, co-founder of Boxx TV. “We understand that everything is important during production. Image quality, reliability, and zero delay are all crucial. The Meridian provides high-image quality consistently, and is highly reliable whether you are shooting in high-desert heat on the hunt for Bin Laden, moving through a free-wheeling Tarantino project, or following the action of a legend like Bond. Working with the production teams of these incredibly accomplished films was an honor and a great experience.”

For those situations that demand high-quality, zero-delay HD and SD live transmission, the Meridian is an affordable alternative to traditional COFDM systems with unprecedented success. The Meridian system uses license-exempt channels.

Django Unchained’s five Oscar(r) nods include Best Picture and Best Cinematography, for last year’s Oscar(r) winner, Robert Richardson, ASC. There were two Boxx Meridian systems and handheld receivers used during the production of the multi-nominated Tarantino project.

Skyfall grabbed a total of five nominations, including one for Best Cinematography for Roger Deakins, ASC, BSC. The production used five zero-delay Meridian systems, simultaneously, in conjunction with ALEXA cameras supplied by ARRI Media UK.

Also earning five Oscar(r) nominations, Zero Dark Thirty used three systems and handheld receivers. The film’s Oscar(r) nods include one for Best Picture.

Their customers’ nominations come on the heels of one of the company’s busiest years on record. “It is great to be associated with Oscar(r)-nominated projects and we’re thrilled,” adds Mark Walker, owner of Boxx Communications. “That said, we worked on many great projects last year, from feature films, to live coverage of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, to episodic television shows such as Revenge and Modern Family; and on breaking news stories on stations such KABC, KNBC and KTLA. We are dedicated to making sure that our clients have great images, no delay, and an incomparable ease of use every time.”
