Custom Consoles desks chosen for Channel 4 playout facility

Custom Consoles has completed a major order for two large desks placed by Channel 4 Television in London.
Both desks were custom-designed and are located in a presentation suite and nearby operations room.
Robert Luggar, Technology Projects Manager at Channel 4 Television explained: "The new desks were commissioned as part of a technical refurbishment of one of our playout facilities. Custom Consoles has supplied many furniture installations to Channel 4's headquarters and was able to match the Channel's requirements in this application."
A seven-bay Custom Consoles desk in the presentation suite houses a Pharos 15 inch control screen, Trilogy and Drake talkbacks and a Pro-Bel presentation mixer. Eight 17 inch LCD panels are located immediately above the desk, used in conjunction with three wall-mounted 40-inch LCD picture monitors.
In the operations room, a five-metre width Custom Consoles desk houses all the technical support equipment required to control routing, ingest to disk and playout. The desk can accommodate four engineering staff.
Manufactured in spray-finished MDF, they incorporate cable management ducts and provide easy access to equipment from front and rear. They were delivered in pre-assembled sections for final assembly onsite by Custom Consoles' staff.
