EVS Chooses Custom Consoles Module-R Lite Desk For New IP Expertise Center

EVS, has opened a new IP Expertise Center at its headquarters in Liège, Belgium. The facility is designed to host customer training sessions and allow professionals to test their equipment and workflows in tandem with EVS products in a fully operational IP production environment.

To showcase its various IP-enabled products and workflow designs within the new product demo area, EVS has purchased a nine-bay Module-R Lite desk from Custom Consoles that is being used to demonstrate its DYVI live production switcher.

Nicolas Bourdon, senior vice president of Marketing at EVS, said the Module-R Lite was the right choice because it gave them the freedom to configure a design that matched their technical requirements and available space.

“The Module-R and Module-R Lite desks are used in many studios around the world which is an obvious advantage in a demonstration suite addressing the video production industry,” he said.

The desk itself is 4.7 meters wide and designed for use by up to three operators. Nine equipment pods with 45 degree slanted front panels are positioned along the rear of the main work surface, each pod housing up to three rack units of communications or auxiliary control equipment. Equipment installed in the desk can be accessed very easily via nine removable panels positioned along the rear. The desk front and side are finished in white, the work surface itself being a rugged white laminate.

“The desk chosen for this project is a standard design and should certainly help to ensure EVS customers feel they are experiencing their product evaluations in the surroundings of a normal broadcast environment,” said Gary Fuller, Sales Manager at Custom Consoles. He added that the Module-R Lite was introduced for use in latest-generation IT-based studios where long-reach worktops are unnecessary. The front to back depth of Module-R Lite is a more compact 95 cm than the 120 cm depth of Module-R.

The Custom Consoles Module-R control room furniture series features a mix-and-match design that allows each desk to be configured to meet specific shapes and dimensions from a selection of high-quality pods, base sections, 19 inch rack housings, worktops, end-panel modules and legs. Coordinated desktop-level pods are available as single-bay sections with up 10U chassis capacity.

The Module-R product range includes 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, 30 degree or 15 degree angles with integral worktops, slide-out keyboard drawers, equipment pods with 3RU, 6RU or 8 RU capacity, 19 in storage pedestals and 27 RU equipment bays.
