Boxer have supported Telestream customers in the UK since 1999, when Bruce Willis was the highest paid movie star and everyone was worried about Y2K.
Fast forward a couple of decades and it's fair to say it’s been an unusual year to say the least. During the pandemic many organisations have had to cope with very complicated working arrangements, many engineers have been furloughed and system checks may not have been given top priority.
FREE TELESTREAM VANTAGE HEALTH CHECK
To help reset the balance, Boxer are offering a free Telestream Vantage Health Check for all customers, designed to diagnose potential future issues before they arise, giving you peace of mind and confidence in your systems.
Carried out by our in house team of certified engineers, trained at Telestream HQ in Nevada, the Health Check is a free service that we can run completely remotely.
Our support credentials are second to none and we are proud to look after some of the biggest names in the business, from the BBC, ITV and Discovery to Viacom, BT and Prime Focus, so you’ll be in safe hands.
Here’s what a few of our customers have said about our Telestream Support service:

FOCUS ON SUPPORT ENGINEER MARK JONES
Find out more a day in the life of Mark Jones, a key member of the Boxer Support Team, who brings his unique charisma and enthusiasm to every challenge.
How long have you worked for Boxer? Since July 2013, nearly 8 years.
Where did you work/what was your role before you joined? I was at TalkTalk as a system administrator working on Linux and Windows services before I joined Boxer. TalkTalk acquired Videonetwork the video on-demand service back in the 00’s.
What’s different about working at Boxer? It was a new lease of life for me joining Boxer after working in a corporate structure for 12 years. I was able to go and meet customers, conduct meetings and training and do more travelling in a year than I had previously done in a decade.
What skills and experiences do you have that enable you help Boxer’s customers? I have experience in coding so I can help customers with developing logics in their workflows, I’ve also worked with with setting up and supporting hardware across a wide range of applications. I keep up with broadcast standards and technologies and always try to stay one step ahead of the game with new ways of working.
What does a typical work day look like? We have a short meeting in the morning with the Engineering team then it’s straight into looking at our support portal to see what queries/issues are being reported. Some days I work with my sales colleagues on pre-sales tasks like proof of concept plans with existing and prospective customers, other days I will be training customers on how to use software and developing workflows with them. I also spend time evaluating new products that we may be interested in representing.
What's your favourite thing about your job? The camaraderie with customers and colleagues.
What's your most prized possession? My wife (she said that).
