Custom Consoles chosen to furnish prestigious London video facility

Tuesday, July 10th, 2007

Custom Consoles has completed a major contract involving the furnishing of a prestigious new media control facility and video conferencing reference room at one of the world’s largest financial institutions. Situated in the heart of London’s financial district, the new facility forms the centrepiece of a broadcast-quality production and communication resource supporting the company’s training programmes and international communication.

The contract placed with Custom Consoles includes two curved production desks of bespoke-design, equipped as three plus four production workstations respectively. Each desk is fitted with multiple 19 inch LCD screens on Ergotron adjustable mounts. Two additional single-station desks for engineering supervisors were provided at the rear of the media control room. All the desks are designed to allow easy rear-access to electronic equipment and to ensure efficient ventilation. Desk surfaces are hard-wearing silver-grey Marmoleum.

A six-panel Custom Consoles monitor stack at the front of the suite incorporates Mitsubishi cubes driven by a multi-image display processor. Like the desks, the monitor stack is finished in maple tinted to match the existing decor. Adacent floor-to-ceiling storage facilities plus an auxiliary 27 rack-unit technical equipment pod with integral wheels for easy repositioning were also supplied.

“This is one of the largest installations of its kind in Europe,” comments Custom Consoles sales manager Gary Fuller. “We were selected as preferred supplier on the basis of our experience in designing high-grade furniture to incorporate IT-based equipment. The client has kindly permitted us to publish images and an outline description of the installation but does not wish to be named for reasons of corporate security.”
