Pilot TV shows are essential for broadcasters to determine if a programme is likely to be successful as a series. A channel might launch one show, or a range of shows in the same genre, game shows for example, to see which is the biggest hit with viewers and which then makes it to the series commissioning stage. Because these shows may only be seen once, when it comes to production, the budgets for pilots are often stripped back, particularly for daytime light entertainment TV.

At Trickbox we can help broadcasters to achieve a high quality professional production with our cost-effective, state-of-the-art, bespoke 12-camera portable production unit (PPU) flyaway. This multi-camera OB solution provides a scalable unit for small to large scale HD and UHD outside broadcast and studio productions and is perfect for light entertainment shows.

The expanded PPU flyaway, which can be rigged or de-rigged in minutes, is built to the highest broadcast specification and delivers a cost-effective solution, providing all the tools required for a full-scale production without the need for an OB truck. It works with either Sony system camera channels or ‘cine’ style cameras and features: a Ross Video Ultrix video and audio router; Ross Video openGear signal processing; a Ross Video Carbonite vision mixer; and full redundancy including uninterruptible power supplies.

The unit provides clients with a full range of services for every outside broadcast and temporary studio requirement. Trickbox has recently worked on a range of OB projects including three pilot shows for UK broadcasters; This Morning Live Wedding from the Royal Albert Hall for ITV Daytime; Soft Cell’s farewell concert for concert films and music documentaries specialists Toward Infinity; The Wave, a Primal Media production for channel W; Bananarama and Steps shows for Toward Infinity; Gary Barlow’s headline concert for Eden Sessions, as well This Morning Live at the NEC Birmingham, for ITV Daytime.
