Input Media Invests In Custom Consoles

News Image
UK TV sports production group Input Media has invested in Custom Consoles' Module-R furniture as part of a technical upgrade at its studios in west London. The new installation includes seven desks and several bench tops for voiceover booths.

Three control suites have been equipped with a pair of desks in a front and back configuration. Each of the three front desks have four work positions and incorporates a Snell switcher control panel, a Yamaha DM1000 audio mixer and auxiliary technical equipment.
The front desks have a two-pod audio bridge mounted behind the audio mixer, each with 5U of integrated racking for equipment. Three monitor screens are mounted to the rear of the desk on user-adjustable Ergotron arms.
The rear desk is designed for use by three to four operators and is equipped with four hybrid monitors on user-adjustable Ergotron arms, for computer or video feeds.
The third suite incorporates two desks in the same configuration, but accommodating a larger front desk housing a Yamaha O2R96 audio mixer.
The final two suites incorporate a larger single desk in the same configuration, but with a reduced-size audio bridge module due to space limitations.
"We needed partner companies we could trust and which could deliver to a tight schedule without disturbing the other ongoing work happening within the facility," said Nick Symes, Director of Technology at Input Media. "Module-R gave our systems integrator, Gearhouse Broadcast, the freedom to specify furniture that exactly suited our needs from a standard set of desk and storage elements, but with bespoke components to fit our specific requirements.
"The Module-R furniture is strongly built, popular with our operators and highly practical in terms of access to integrated equipment. The project, which centred on an expansion of our high-definition capabilities, has proved a great success."
Custom Consoles' Module-R product range includes single-bay, dual-bay and triple-bay desk sections with front or rear access, work surfaces in matching widths and corner desk sections in 90 degree, 45 degree or 30 degree angles. Also available are integral worktops, a slide-out keyboard drawer, equipment pods with 3U, 6U or 8U capacity, a 19 in storage pedestal and a 27U equipment bay.
