Boxx TV's Meridian Zero-delay Cameraback Transmitters, Iris and Tally
Camera paint systems are traditionally expensive and hence out of the reach of many productions. Boxx has conceived a simple yet elegant solution that provides remote control for Iris and tally light only. The Meridian Tallis system works with any brand of broadcast camera which uses a standard 12 pin Hirose cable for its lens.Meridian Tallis is not limited to Boxx TV’s own wireless camera systems.
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. Tallis offers a solution for many productions where just controlling the iris is sufficient. It also 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.
Boxx TV was founded by two Australian entrepreneurs Scott Walker and Darrell Bilton. Former cameraman Scott Walker says:
"There simply isn’t another solution at 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.”
Boxx’s own wireless camera solution, the Meridian, operates with zero delay has been used numerous times alongside cabled cameras on multi-camera productions.
Boxx are offering their iris control and tally for all broadcast and video productions, outdoor screen applications, conference centres, wedding videography and webcasting.
