Custom Consoles to promote latest range of broadcast studio furniture at CABSAT 2012, Dubai

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

Leighton Buzzard, England, 9 January 2012: Custom Consoles has chosen CABSAT 2012, Dubai, to announce major enhancements to its wide range of broadcast studio control desks, monitor display supports and storage furniture. New options for Module-R and Media Wall will be promoted on the company’s stand, S1-C33, together with an upgraded version of the SystemTwo height-adjustable workstation. Custom Consoles will be represented by Neil Reed (Managing Director) and Gary Fuller (Sales Manager).

“The Middle East market has long been an important one for Custom Consoles both in a broadcast context and in wider areas of industrial process control,” Neil Reed comments. “CABSAT is the ideal venue at which to meet existing and potential customers and to talk with system integrators active in the region.”

Module-R control room furniture

Custom Consoles’ Module-R product range gives customers the freedom to design robust, efficient and attractive control-room desks on a pick-and-mix basis from a selection of standard interlocking elements. These include high-quality single-bay, dual-bay and triple-bay desk sections with front or rear access, work surfaces in matching widths, corner desk sections in 90 degree, 45 degree or 30 degree angles with integral worktops, a slide-out keyboard drawer, equipment pods with 3U, 6U or 8U capacity, a 19 in storage pedestal and 27U equipment bay.

A new feature of Module-R is a redesigned steel-and-aluminium vertical support with internal cable ducts. Resting on a broad load-bearing skid, the new legs provide improved strength and stability, protect studio carpet and allow easier relocation if required during technical rebuilds. Module-R furniture is available as off-the-shelf units in beech, cherry, maple or oak finish with a choice of hard-wearing arabesque, black or blue marmoleum worktops. Cabinet construction is in veneered MDF with continuous brush-strip edging and easy cable access.

Media Wall flat-screen monitor mounting

Custom Consoles’ innovative and highly successful Media Wall is designed to accommodate large or small arrays of flat-panel monitors and ancillary equipment. Easy to install and expandable to meet future requirements, Media Wall incorporates height-adjustable horizontal beams suspended between 2 metre high aluminium columns. Beams  allow easy attachment of large and small panels using pivoting VESA and plasma-mount fittings. Horizontal cable trunking is provided at the rear of each beam and vertical trunking at the rear of each column, enabling easy and expandable housing of power and video wiring. Equipment pods with 19 inch racking behind removable vented panels can be accommodated at floor-level.

Available as standard in a silver-anodised finished, Media Wall can now be delivered in an optional black-powder coated finish and in bespoke widths.

SystemTwo height-adjustable studio workstations

SystemTwo is a multi-element furniture system designed to accommodate free-standing or pod-mounted equipment such as graphics workstations and editing terminals. Features include a front-facing cable-access slot eliminating the need to loop cables from the rear. The SystemTwo range includes the S2-01B desk and S2-2B, both electrically adjustable in height from 660 to 1,200 mm.

New for CABSAT is a redesigned SystemTwo leg system with improved strength and stability and an integral load-distributing floor skid.
