Broadcasters Show Renewed Interest in Custom Consoles

Custom Consoles showed the latest version of its EditOne and Module-R Lite desks on its 2016 IBC exhibit stand last month and the company reports that interest is steadily increasing.

Interest in EditOne was especially strong thanks both to its innovative design and very competitive price point,” said Gary Fuller, sales manager at UK-based Custom Consoles. “We took a good number of orders for EditOne during the show itself from customers based inside and outside the European Union.”

The Module-R Lite is identical in design to the standard Module-R range but based on 930 mm front-to-back desk dimensions. The 1,200-millimeter front-to-back depth of a standard Module-R desk allows easy embedding of control surfaces such as vision switchers or audio mixers.

"The Module-R Lite is optimized for production staff working in support services such as graphics and editing,” Fuller said. “The option of fitting monitor display screens above the rear edge of Module-R Lite desks makes even more efficient use of space.”

Custom Consoles Module-R Lite desks are available with the same wide range of matching equipment pods and storage modules as Module-R, with correspondingly adjusted front-to-back dimensions if required. Both product ranges enable systems integrators to create control-room desks from a selection of standard interlocking elements, including 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 or 30 degree angles with integral worktops, slide-out keyboard drawers, equipment pods with 3U, 6U or 8U capacity, 19 in storage pedestals and 27U equipment bays.

Custom Consoles also showed its MediaWall monitor display system and a MediaPost portable monitor mount. MediaWall is a long-established product that is used in broadcast master control rooms and playout centers around the world.
