Nairobi, Kenya, June 25, 2015: Warrior Insight, a risk management specialist based in Kenya, has chosen Custom Consoles MDesk-Technical for installation at its Nairobi headquarters. The desks house the operational infrastructure for a newly built video surveillance control suite.

“Custom Consoles has a global reputation for the robustness, ergonomic excellence and attractive styling of its control room furniture,” comments Warrior Insight Kenya’s CEO Adam Miller. “Equally important is the company’s attention to detail in terms of equipment accessibility, ventilation and cable management. The desks form the basis of a good working environment which allows our staff to give total attention to their security duties. Based on successful prior experience with Custom Consoles, we were fully confident to install the desks ourselves. Pre-assembled modules were air freighted from Custom Consoles’ UK factory complete with easy-to-follow instructions.”

“The control room furniture designed for Warrior Insight is from our standard range of MDesk-Technical modules, configured to fit within the available floor dimensions,” adds Custom Consoles’ Sales Manager Gary Fuller. “The furniture comprises three desks providing a total of eight independent workstations. Each operator has access to a dedicated computer housed in an under-desk pedestal plus three desktop monitor display screens and a desktop keyboard. Largest of the desks is a 6.4 metre wide four-operator unit facing a large-screen video wall. Behind this is a parallel 4.8 metre wide three-operator desk. Third of the three desks is a 1.6 metre wide supervisor’s workstation with an additional work surface extension. Each desk is finished in cherry with a hard-wearing blue Marmoleum work surface.”

Custom Consoles’ MDesk-Technical is a structured system enabling bespoke configuration from a number of standard modules, providing an ergonomic working environment for control rooms of any size. Dual horizontal cable ducting is provided throughout entire length of each desk with access via an intermediate leg or pedestal. Monitor display mounting arms are available if required. MDesk-Technical furniture is constructing from a selection of sustainable veneered MDF carcasses, with Marmoleum or laminate work surfaces, edged in a matching hardwood.

Leighton Buzzard, UK, June 12, 2015: Custom Consoles announces a major addition to its range of broadcast furniture. MediaPost is a free-standing portable mount capable of accommodating flat monitor displays of up to 65 inch diagonal screen size. Two MediaPosts can be coupled by a 3 metre wide horizontal beam supporting up to three 65 inch monitors in a single row.

“MediaPost is designed primarily for situations where our standard MediaWall would be too large,” comments Managing Director Neil Reed. “Applications include discrete monitors supplementing an existing monitorscape, studio floor monitors, off-camera talent prompts or part of an in-view studio background. MediaPost is built to the same high standards of ruggedness as MediaWall. Both come with a two-year guarantee against component failure during normal use.”

Each MediaPost is constructed from anodised extruded aluminium profiles forming a 1,806 millimetre high rigid column. These are supported by a 700 mm wide x 590 mm front-to-back base fitted with rear wheels to allow easy positioning. The base and a middle-height equipment shelf are finished in a matte black powder coating. Loudspeaker mounts are available if required. The optional horizontal beam matches the finish of the anodised aluminium vertical columns. MediaPost is fully height-adjustable to ensure sight lines are optimised when using tilting screen mounts. Cables can be fully concealed behind removable covers.

Built at Custom Consoles’ UK manufacturing facility, MediaPost is available within a typical delivery period of seven to 14 working days. Its first public show appearance will be at IBC2015 in Amsterdam where Custom Consoles will be exhibiting on stand 8.B38a.
