Custom Consoles Module-R Desks Go Live for US Tennis

Wednesday, August 29th, 2018

Leighton Buzzard, UK, August 29, 2018 – Custom Consoles studio control room desks were fielded on the US East Coast this summer for one of the premier tournaments in the annual tennis calendar. A large contingent of desks in the Module-R range were delivered to the USA for the two-week event which was broadcast live to television audiences around the globe.

“The ability to transport Module-R in sections has long been greatly appreciated by mobile production specialists and the supporting dry-hire and wet-hire rental services,” says Custom Consoles’ Sales Manager Gary Fuller.

“We have already seen as many as 30 of our desks deployed across sports events this summer by the large-scale OB companies. These include the world football championships in Russia where they were used by operators controlling a wide range of technical facilities in the International Broadcast Centre.”

“We completed and delivered a large amount of Module-R flyaway control room furniture for the US tennis tournament alone. The majority are two-bay and three-bay desks in standard sections with worktops and side panels, designed for easy transportation and quick setup. Most important of all, they allow very fast installation of control-room equipment such as camera shading, vision switchers, audio mixers, intercoms and video monitors.”

A mix-and-matchable control room furniture range, Custom Consoles’ Module-R enables aesthetically attractive long-life desks to be configured in a variety of shapes and dimensions from a selection of high-quality pods, base sections, 19 inch rack housings, worktops, end-panel modules and legs. Coordinated desk pods are available as single-bay sections with up 10 rack unit chassis capacity. Module-R has been tested by FIRA to ensure compliance with current ISO standards. It is supplied with full cable management and internal 19 inch racking, accessible via removable front and rear cover panels. All rear surfaces and pods are completely interchangeable. A full length cable brush allows easy reconfiguration.
