Trickbox TV Purchases Trilogy Messenger

News Image
Trickbox TV has announced the purchase of Trilogy Communications' Messenger intercom system. The system will complement the company's expanding multi-camera flyaway operations.

Trickbox TV provides multi-camera OB services for a variety of productions including broadcast, live events, corporate events, and web streaming. Its recent projects include ITV's Flockstars, as well as live coverage of American football's NFL Draft.

In order to improve communications between crew, Trickbox TV needed a portable, compact, and reliable intercom system as part of the development of its PPUs (portable production units) and flyaways.

Messenger fulfils the need for a cost-effective intercom solution without the installation, operational and future expansion constraints of more traditional 2- and 4-wire systems. From a factory configured base system, it has the flexibility to evolve to meet the emerging communication needs of the organisation for which it is deployed.

In the case of Trickbox TV's typical multi-camera flyaway environments, every operator in a control area can now have individual talkback panels, and camera operators now have full talkback, including a discreet engineering talkback channel to communicate with lighting and vision teams. As Messenger can handle 4-wire inputs and outputs, integrating presenter, radio, and third-party talkback is simple.

Liam Laminman, Managing Director at Trickbox TV, said: "Talkback is a crucial part of any production and offers a greater opportunity for success. We chose Trilogy's Messenger intercom system because it's a compact digital system that provides a lot of technical flexibility coupled with operational convenience."

Ewan Johnston, Sales Director, Trilogy Communications, added: "Trickbox TV is a perfect example of just how Messenger can be configured and deployed to meet the precise needs of an organisation. Moreover, its flexibility means that it can evolve with Trickbox TV and can continue to meets those needs well into the future. That's what we call value for money."
