February 12th 2019 – Custom Consoles has selected SCTX 2019 in London, March 5th and 6th, for the first exhibition of its latest MediaWall monitor mounting system. Representatives on the company’s stand, L50, will include Neil Reed (Managing Director) and Gary Fuller (Sales Manager). The stand itself will be expanded from last year to accommodate MediaWall plus an example from the Custom Consoles SteelBase Lite desk series.

“Originally developed for the broadcast industry, MediaWall has proved highly successful for technical control applications in security and process monitoring,” Neil Reed comments. “A free-standing flat screen mounting solution for flat-panel monitors of practically any size, it incorporates adjustable horizontal beams with T-slot mounting to allow easy configuration.”

“Integral cable management conceals video, data and power cables. Redesigned lateral support beams in the latest version allow display panels to be mounted even more easily than before. Cable management is inside stronger and more attractively styled steel ducts rather than plastic. The supporting leg sides are now in black instead of silver, matching the latest Custom Consoles Module-R desk styles.”

MediaWall allows flat-screen monitor displays of practically any width to be constructed from standard horizontal and vertical support elements. It can be used as a fully self-supporting structure or coupled directly to a 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. Media Wall is available in any specified element widths.

“We will also be exhibiting an example from our configurable SteelBaseLite desk series,” adds Gary Fuller. “SteelBase Lite is built to withstand the wear and tear of the utilities and marine industries while still providing ergonomic efficiency and attractive styling. The desks are built on extremely robust steel base frames with desktops surfaced in a choice of hard-wearing laminate or Marmoleum.”

“Additional design features of the SteelBase Lite range include hinged removable access doors, 19 inch equipment racking, heavy cable management, power distribution panels and variable-speed ventilation fans. Worktops can be configured to suit individual client requirements. All elements of the desks are guaranteed against component failure for five years of normal use. SteelBase-Lite is designed to conform to ISO9241 part 5, ISO11064 Part 4 and EN527 Parts 1, 2 and 3.”

Held annually at the Olympia event centre in West Kensington, SCTX (www.counterterrorexpo.com) is focused on security and counter-terrorism. The show last year attracted 304 exhibiting companies and 10,123 total attendees.

Custom Consoles Adds New Features to MediaWall Monitor Mounting System

January 23rd, 2019

 

Custom Consoles is adding new features and refinements to its MediaWall monitor mounting system. Introduced in 2006, MediaWall is today used by broadcasters and technical control centres around the world, allowing video display panels, loudspeakers and auxiliary devices such as studio clocks to be integrated into a single structure. Applications also include presentation suites and studio backdrops.

“MediaWall was first developed to meet a requirement for robust and easily-assembled monitor display mounts at Scottish broadcaster STV,” says Custom Consoles’ Managing Director Neil Reed.

“Since then it has become one of the best-selling products in our entire range. Major customers for MediaWall in recent years have included Al Sharqiya, Associated Press, 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.”

“In this latest version, we have redesigned the lateral support beams so that display panels can be mounted even more easily than before. The beam profile is now square-section rather than trapezoidal.”

“Cable management within MediaWall has also been improved and is now via steel ducts rather than plastic. The new ducts are stronger and more attractively styled, which customers will appreciate in open-plan control rooms. The supporting leg sides are now in black instead of silver, to match the latest Module-R desk styles which we introduced last September.”

Custom Consoles’ Media Wall allows flat-screen monitor displays of practically any width to be constructed from standard horizontal and vertical support elements. Media Wall 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. Media Wall is available in any specified element widths.

Custom Consoles Produces Audiovisual Control Desk for Videlio Digital & Media

November 21st, 2018

 

 

 

 

 

Leighton Buzzard, UK, November 21, 2018 – Custom Consoles has completed a project-specific control desk for Hampshire-based audiovisual systems integrator Videlio Digital & Média United Kingdom. The desk houses equipment used to control sound reinforcement and presentation-area lighting at the Christ Church community centre in Epsom.

“Our brief from Videlio was to design and build a robust desk that would blend into a church environment,” says Custom Consoles Sales Manager Gary Fuller. “We selected a style with curved side-panels approximately resembling an organ console. Built in MDF with medium-oak veneer, it is configured to allow one person to control the entire system or can be used by two people if preferred.”

“We gave Custom Consoles a detailed listing of the equipment we would be integrating into the desk,” adds Videlio Digital & Media Systems Engineer David Wedlake. “Now fully installed and operational, the desk includes an audio mixing console to the left, two flat-screen monitor displays a desktop control panel at centre right, plus a routing patch bay and various rack-mounting signal processors.”

“The audio console is protected by a sliding tambour cover which can be locked to preserve specific control settings. The monitor screens are supported by operator-adjustable Ergotron mounts attached to the rear of the desktop.”

“We are all delighted with the way the desk has turned out and how it matches in with the rest of the church. I would like to thank Gary and the Custom Consoles team for the effort they have all put into the design and build.”

Based at the Loddon Centre in Basingstoke, Videlio Digital & Média (https://videlio-digitalmedia.com/en/85-united-kingdom) provides global and tailored solutions for applications such as collaborative workspaces, auditoriums, teleconference rooms, digital signage, museum displays, theatres, stadiums, theme parks, recording studios, broadcast facilities and public-utility supervision control facilities.
