Custom Consoles to exhibit latest versions of Module-R and Media Wall at IBC2012, Amsterdam

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

Enhanced versions of Custom Consoles’ Module-R range of control room furniture and Media Wall monitor display supports will make their European debut at IBC2012. Exhibiting on stand 3.A54, Custom Consoles will be represented by Neil Reed (Managing Director), Graham Buchanan (Commercial Director) and Gary Fuller (Sales Manager).

Module-R control room furniture

Custom Consoles’ Module-R product range allows customers and system integrators to create robust, efficient and attractive control-room desks 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 available in a range of sizes to accommodate large or small arrays of flat-panel monitors and ancillary equipment. Easy to install and to expand, Media Wall incorporates height-adjustable horizontal beams suspended between 2.3 metre high aluminium columns. Large and small display panels, or a mixture of sizes, can be attached to the horizontal beam sections 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 to accommodate power and video cables. Equipment pods with 19 inch racking behind removable vented panels can be incorporated 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.

“We will also be promoting the latest version of our System Two range of height-adjustable studio workstations,” adds Gary Fuller. “System Two is a multi-element furniture system designed to accommodate free-standing or pod-mounted equipment such as graphics workstations and editing terminals.  The System Two range includes the S2-01B desk and S2-02B shelf, both electrically adjustable in height from 660 to 1,250 mm. The key new feature is a redesigned System Two leg system with improved strength and stability and an integral load-distributing floor skid.”
