Custom Consoles (www.customconsoles.co.uk) will exhibit the latest refinements to its MediaWall studio monitor mounting frames and Module-R control room furniture on stand 8.B38 at IBC 2019 Amsterdam, September 13th-17th. Also on show will be an enhanced version of the SystemTwo motorised height-adjustable edit-suite desk with greater lifting power.
"Originally developed for STV in Scotland, MediaWall has become one of our best-selling products with customers such as Al Sharqiya, Associated Press, Azerbaijan Parliamentary Television, BBC Scotland, BBC Studios & Post Production, BT Sport, ICS Media Production, Mediahouse, Radio-Television Slovenia, Radio Television Suisse, RT, RTL City, TBN and Telegraph Media," comments Custom Consoles Managing Director Neil Reed. "The enhanced version incorporates redesigned lateral support beams which allow display panels to be attached more easily. Cable management is now via steel ducts rather than PVC. The new ducts are stronger and more attractively styled, which customers will appreciate in open-plan control rooms. The supporting legs are now a silver extrusion with a black cable management insert, to match the Module-R desk styles which we introduced at IBC 2018."
"Our latest-generation Module-R desks also now come with a steel cable tray as standard rather than PVC, providing greater strength and eliminating the environmental issue of recycling plastic components."
"Additionally on the show stand will be an example from our SystemTwo range of desks, now equipped as standard with heavier duty lifting pillars. Support capacity has been increased from 140 to 240 kg."
Custom Consoles' MediaWall allows flat-screen monitor displays of practically any width to be constructed from standard horizontal and vertical support elements. MediaWall can be used as a fully self-supporting structure or coupled directly to the studio wall. Individual screens can be positioned so that the edges meet exactly to form a continuous horizontal display limited only by the boundary of the monitor panel itself. All wiring is fully concealed and can enter or leave the structure at any desired point. MediaWall is available in any specified element widths.
A mix-and-matchable control room furniture range, Custom Consoles' Module-R allows aesthetically attractive long-life desks to be configured to meet specific shapes and dimensions from a selection of high-quality pods, base sections, 19 inch rack housings, worktops, end-panel modules and legs. Coordinated desk pods are available as single-bay sections with up 10U chassis capacity. Module-R has been tested by FIRA to ensure compliance with current ISO standards. It is supplied with full cable management and internal 19 inch racking, accessible via removable front and rear cover panels. All rear surfaces and pods are completely interchangeable. A full length cable brush allows easy reconfiguration.
Designed for use in edit suites and graphics areas, SystemTwo comprises a rectangular desk and parallel monitor shelf, both being electrically height adjustable from 660 to 1200 mm. This gives operators the choice of working while seated or standing. Other elements in the SystemTwo series include an 11U equipment pedestal, underslung 3U equipment pod and 27U equipment bay.
