Custom Consoles reports a strong level of interest in its new EditOne low-cost flat-pack technical furniture at IBC2013.
"This was one of our most successful IBC shows in recent years thanks in part to an excellent stand location," comments Custom Consoles Sales Manager Gary Fuller. "Interest in our new EditOne range of workstation and storage furniture was very high among existing clients and its aggressive price point attracted a lot of potential new business."
"Available now, EditOne is designed for use in video editing suites and broadcast graphics areas. It offers excellent ergonomics to impress the operators, ultra-modern styling to impress their clients, and a price point that will impress the purchasing department. Systems integrators also appreciated the speed with which we can deliver. All furniture in the EditOne range can be shipped within days of order. It is despatched in compact flat-pack form for easy onsite assembly, saving space, cost and delivery time."
The Custom Consoles EditOne desk goes beyond traditional rectangular styling by using sculpted MDF support panels rather than metal legs. The curved theme is carried through to the desktop and a raised monitor shelf, both of which are optimised for a centrally seated operator.
Three equipment pods with a collective nine units of rack space are incorporated in the desk. These form the base of a monitor shelf. Full cable management is provided. Power distribution is optional. An auxiliary equipment pedestal with an additional eleven units of rack space and an integral worktop is also in production.
Front and rear corners of the EditOne desk and auxiliary pedestal are curved, eliminating any possibility of collision with sharp protrusions and contributing to the ultra-modern styling. The worktop and monitor base also have hard-wearing and operator-friendly curved edges at front, sides and rear. Finish is in oak with contrasting black powder-coated MDF.
