NEP Netherlands Chooses Custom Consoles Control Desks And MediaWall

Custom Consoles has announced the completion and installation of eight control desks and a large MediaWall monitor display support system for NEP Media Solutions in Hilversum, Netherlands.

Located in the master control room at the NEP's studios in Hilversum's Media Park, the desks are configured in front and rear rows for use by up to six and four operators respectively.

"The forward desk centres on a dual-operator bridge with a total of eight forward-sloping 4U equipment pods, said sales manager Gary Fuller of Custom Consoles. "This is constructed as a rectangular unit with space for two operators. Left and right of the bridge are two units of identical design to the bridge but angled to match the curve of the 13.9 metre wide six-frame MediaWall."

The four-operator rear desk is concentric with the front unit so that everyone in the master control room has an unrestricted view of the MediaWall. Each equipment pod is also fitted with a computer monitor panel mounted on an operator-adjustable Ergotron support arm.

The rear central desk incorporates a total of six equipment pods — three per operator — and is flanked on each side by a single-operator desk with four equipment pods. The front and rear desks are electrically height adjustable in three sections and have leatherette effect laminate worktops. Side panels are in oak-veneered MDF with a stained finish.

Custom Consoles' MediaWall allows flat-screen monitor displays of practically any width to be constructed from standard horizontal and vertical support elements. MediaWall can be used as a fully self-supporting structure or coupled directly to the studio wall.
