UK’s Telegraph Media
 Furnishes Its Crews With Custom Consoles

A Custom Consoles Module-R desk and Media Wall monitor support frame have been installed at the Telegraph Media Group headquarters in London Victoria to accommodate core control and monitoring equipment for the A/V studio.

The control room and studio—which were outfitted with the new equipment by Multilink Broadcast, one of Britain's leading independent system integrators—are used as a hub for real-time content gathering and distribution of content for various divisions within the group and are also available for use by to third-party clients. 


“The Custom Consoles Module-R provided the basis from which we were able to specify exactly the combination of features required for the control desk,” said Dean McNally, Managing Director at Multilink Broadcast. “This is a 3.2 meter wide in-line design supported by a 14 RU high pod on the left and right sides. The center span is four bays wide with storage space for addition equipment below the desktop. Four 3U high sloping pods for auxiliary equipment occupy the desktop rear, plus a 6U desktop pod on the right.”

The center-left bay is fitted with a 19-inch liyama touch-screen monitor on an Ergotron operator-adjustable arm. Additional computer monitors are attached in the same way at top left and top right. A rear-sloping anodized aluminum leg provides additional support at the center of the desk bridge.

“Media Wall gave us a similar degree of freedom to configure a support structure for the control room's picture and sound monitors,” McNally said. “The Media Wall in this case is 2.2 meters wide, 1.8 meters high and half a meter front-to-back. Located directly in front of the desk, it supports two 42-inch LCD screens plus a 24-inch display for the studio clock. Passive near-field loudspeakers are mounted at left and right.”



A mix-and-match control room furniture system, the Custom Consoles Module-R product range allows aesthetically attractive and long-life desks 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 desk pods are available as single-bay sections with up 10 RU chassis capacity.

Custom Consoles' Media Wall allows flat-screen monitor displays of practically any width to be constructed from standard horizontal and vertical support elements. Media Wall can be used as a fully self-supporting structure or coupled directly to the studio wall. Individual screens can be positioned so that their edges meet exactly to form a continuous horizontal display limited only by the boundary of the monitor panel itself. All wiring is fully concealed and can enter or leave the structure at any desired point. Media Wall is available in a silver-anodized or black-powder coated finish and in any specified element widths.
