Coventry University Selects Custom Consoles For New Broadcast Production Gallery

Custom Consoles’ Module-R, MDesks and MediaPosts have been selected as the core technical furniture for a new television studio gallery at Coventry University. The studio will be used as a training facility for broadcasting, journalism and drama students.

Coventry University selected core studio furniture from Custom Consoles to equip its new production facility. The control desk is a 5.7 meter wide surface from the Module-R series. The desk houses an 11U high monitor and test equipment pod, three talkback pods each with 3U capacity, and an 8U audio support pod.

Two Custom Consoles MediaPost mounts form a 4-meter wide monitor-scape in a half-meter space between the wall and the rear edge of the production control desk. These support two 50-inch LCD displays and two 8-inch loudspeakers. Two additional MediaPosts, each with a 47-inch transflective display, are separately located along glass walls within public view.

Three MDesks with the same color scheme are positioned as a rear-row running parallel to the Module-R control desk. These desks form a flexible working space for auxiliary production personnel, lecturers, students and guests.

The Module-R series is a mix-and-match control room furniture system that allows aesthetically attractive and highly robust desks to be configured in almost any shape and size. Co-ordinated desk pods are available as single-bay sections with up 10U chassis capacity.

Custom Consoles’ MDesk is a structured system enabling bespoke configuration from a number of standard modules, providing an ergonomic working environment for control rooms of any size. Cable management ducts are standard, with optional CPU holders and ergonomic LCD monitor arms as required. M-Desk is augmented by a selection of matching pedestals and storage furniture.
