London, UK, September 25, 2015: Custom Consoles reports enthusiastic response from IBC2015 visitors to its new MediaPost monitor display system and the latest version of the EditOne desk.

“In terms of business confidence, this was one of our most successful IBC shows for many years,” reports Custom Consoles Business Director Graham Buchanan. “The European mainland market is particularly healthy with many new broadcast projects planned for the coming 12 months. We also also spoke with many broadcasters from the UK and a larger than usual number from the Middle East.

“IBC2015 was the first public showing of MediaPost. This is a free-standing portable monitor mount matching the styling and rugged build quality of our established and very popular MediaWall. MediaPost can be moved easily around a studio or used to supplement an existing control room monitorscape. MediaPost accommodates monitor panels of up to 65 inch diagonal screen size and auxiliary devices such as loudspeakers. Applications include studio floor monitoring, script display prompts and in-view studio backgrounds.”

Each MediaPost is constructed from extruded aluminium profiles, black or silver anodised, 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.

An optional horizontal beam matches the finish of the 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. Like MediaWall, MediaPost comes with a two-year guarantee against component failure during normal use.

“The latest EditOne desk also received an excellent reception, including strong interest from a high-profile US-based organisation,” adds Managing Director Neil Reed. “Originally introduced at IBC2013, EditOne was the first in a new range of very aggressively priced technical furniture designed for fast flat-pack delivery. Assembly can be performed quickly and easily by the system integrator or customer. We also offer an on-site assembly service.”

Front and rear corners of the EditOne desk and optional pedestal are curved, eliminating any possibility of collision with sharp protrusions and contributing to the ultra-modern styling. The worktop and monitor base also have hard-wearing and operator-friendly curved edges at front, sides and rear. EditOne incorporates three equipment pods with a collective nine units of rack space. These form the base of a monitor shelf. Full cable management is provided. Power distribution is optional. An auxiliary equipment pedestal with an additional 11 units of rack space and an integral worktop is also available.
