AE Live Chooses Custom Consoles M-Desk-Technical For Graphics Suite

AE Live, an internationally active provider of sports-related television services, has selected Custom Consoles M-Desk-Technical control room furniture for integration into new graphics suites at premises in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, UK.

"We specialise in delivering creative, innovative and data-rich services for live sport broadcasts," comments Andy McCall, AE Live's Facilities and Health & Safety Manager. "That includes creating, developing and delivering on-screen graphics, virtual studios, augmented reality graphics, optimised feeds for devices and audiences, newsroom graphics, virtual advertising, and in-stadia feeds across a broad range of platforms and in multiple languages. The new graphics suites enable our staff to concentrate on projects delivered from the AE Live Campus without the visual or acoustic distractions that reduce concentration in an open-plan working environment. The M-Desk Technical series was the logical choice as it makes highly efficient use of the available space while retaining the freedom to specify the exact features we needed from a standardised range of structural elements. The resultant desks are very strongly built including under-desk pedestals to accommodate IT equipment, monitor display mounts and integral cable management. They also combine comfortable ergonomics with elegant styling."

"M-Desk-Technical continues to be a popular choice for IT-centric projects such as modern graphics suites," adds Gary Fuller, Custom Consoles' Sales Manager. "The series is designed for control rooms where equipment is housed outside rather than inside the console and no control panels are embedded into the work surface."
