Over 350 guests arrived at the Royal Albert Hall on the evening of Sunday 16th September to a champagne reception, a three-course meal, beverages and a live auction all with one aim: to raise as much money for The Sunflower Jam as possible. After dinner, the iconic venue opened its doors to a further 2000 people and everyone settled in for what promised to be a once-in-a-lifetime rock music line up.
Trickbox were there to cover the whole event with our trusty PPU, The Trickbox® and 8 cameras.
The 6th Sunflower Jam, a rock & roll music event saw rock legends take to the Royal Albert Hall stage to perform. The evening, hosted by actor Jeremy Irons, consisted of many special performances from Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden), Ian Paice (Deep Purple), Mark King (Level 42), Alfie Boe, Brian May (Queen), Kerry Ellis, John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) and Alice Cooper. Jerry Brown, Margo Buchanan, Micky Moody, Murray Gould, Nick Fyffe, Sandi Thom, Steve Balsamo, The Temperance Movement, The Big C Choir, Uli Jon Roth and Wix Wickins made up an outstanding house band.
The show’s highlights included Brian May, John Paul Jones and Ian Paice teaming up for a rendition of Deep Purple’s ‘Black Night,’ and Brian May joining Alice Cooper for a version of the shock rocker’s classic ‘School’s Out.’ Just when the Royal Albert Hall thought it couldn’t get any better, the evening ended with each and every rock legend coming together on stage for a ‘Superjam’ cover of Deep Purple’s anthem ‘Smoke on the Water.’ The atmosphere was nothing short of electric – everyone was acutely aware that they were watching something special. Suffice to say, the Royal Albert Hall has never rocked like that!
We recently provided the multi-camera and video streaming facilities for a Conor Maynard music performance.
The live secret gig was in a small art gallery in London and the gig and interview with the star was streamed live into muzu.tv
We used our portable production unit (PPU), The Trickbox®, and 4 Panasonic HPX3000 series cameras.
We were called in to shoot The Stranglers Convention 2011 – The Weekend in Black for a DVD.
We used our multi-camera PPU, The Trickbox®, and 5 Panasonic P2 cameras – a mixture of HPX371‘s and HPX500′s. We were filming on and off all day and night so the file-based workflow and P2 card management was busy, plus we were encoding a H.264 live as we went for a quick turnaround for the web.
Here’s a few images from The Stranglers Convention 2011 but see the Trickbox FaceBook page for more.

Trickbox TV were proud to be asked to handle the multi-camera recording of the One Love Peace Festival at Wembley Arena. We used our multi-camera portable production unit - The Trickbox® and three Panasonic AG-HPX371 cameras.
Commemorating the 30th anniversary of the passing of Bob Marley and supporting the fight against gun and knife crime, the theme of the 2011 One Love Peace Festival was ‘Throw Away your Guns, Throw Away your Knives and Save a Life’
It was a great day, packed full of bands like Aswad, Levi Roots (with a remixed version of Reggae Reggae Sauce!), Sean Paul, Busta Rhymes and Shaggy. It was a long hard day for the crew, with a fairly big rig – 100 metre camera cable runs. But it was great fun.

In the wonderful surroundings of the famous Science Museum, London, Trickbox TV and Flint London produced a live webcast featuring Sir David Attenborough, interviewed by Ben Fogle - Ask Attenborough: Live – to mark Sir David’s 85th birthday and to celebrate his 50 years of broadcasting. It’s also to be broadcast in full HD on UKTV Eden on June 27th 2011.
The programme was technically demanding, having to allow for the simultaneous live webcast and the full TX and ISO recording for a future HD broadcast on UKTV.
We used our multi-camera flyaway portable production unit (PPU), The Trickbox® and shot in full HD, 1080i using 4 Panasonic AG-HPX3000 series cameras. We also had some HDCAM VTRs for record and playback plus an EVS from Timeline TV and we used broadcast quality encoders and Flint’s IP uplink truck to get the programme out live to the internet world.
The live webcast embraced social media with live integration with Facebook and Twitter – with the Twitter hashtag #askattenborough – allowing viewers to directly ‘Ask Attenborough’ questions.
See the on demand version of the webcast of Ask Attenborough: Live here:
