"Panavision has been a leader in this industry for as long as I can remember," says Mark Walker, founder of Boxx Communications. "And this is a perfect example of why; they provide productions with the very best technology available today, and certainly that is true with the Meridian."
The Meridian System, which was recently selected by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences (AMPAS) for further Sci-Tech awards consideration, represents a new era in wireless HD/SD microwave video transmission system for cameras. It instantly delivers extremely high-quality uncompressed SD and HD video over license exempt channels, with zero delay. This revolutionary technology works with all formats (composite, component, SDI and HDSDI) and frame rates, breaking new ground in affordable SD and HD transmission for broadcasting. The Meridian supports full 4:2:2 video for all formats up to 1080/30p, and delivers uncompressed, artifact-free broadcast video with in sync sound to integrate seamlessly with coax cameras switched live.
The Meridian, system is used in a variety of settings that cover the gamut of production needs and are frequently found on feature film and TV productions, at live broadcasts of sports, worship, award ceremonies, and news, and in large screen presentations.
Panavision has deployed the Boxx TV Meridian for feature films such as Transformers, Let's Be Cops and Pacific Rim, and on TV shows including Dallas, CSI, NCIS, Army Wives, and Body of Proof, among many others.
