Gearhouse Selects Custom Consoles For Australian Open

News Image
Gearhouse Broadcast has selected Custom Consoles' Module-R technical control furniture for a flyaway production system at the 2015 Australian Open tennis tournament.

The event takes place January 19 to February 1 and will be televised live from the Melbourne Park venue in Victoria.

"This is a very large and prestigious contract," says Gearhouse Broadcast Managing Director Kevin Moorhouse. "The furniture aspect alone includes 26 Custom Consoles Module-R desks in a wide variety of configurations and two EditOne desks for the edit suites. Module-R provided a highly efficient basis for us to specify a furniture system which we could confidently assemble on site. It is robust, popular with operators, and attractively styled.

"Equally important, Module-R provides easy access to equipment and cabling during installation as well as for any required technical maintenance. The EditOne series is flat-packable which makes it very compact to deliver. Assembly and equipment integration are quite straightforward."

"The Australian Open project for Gearhouse Broadcast embraces a wide range of desk sizes and configurations," said Custom Consoles Sales Manager Gary Fuller. "The Module-R desks include a single-operator EVS varispeed-replay control station, a dual-operator robotics control desk, senior technical director position, three-operator camera control desk, a two-operator quality control desk, three-operator Rod Laver Arena production control, a shared two-operator production control desk for Hisense, Margaret Court and Courts 2/3, a shared two-operator control desk for Courts 6 and 8, plus a three-operator world feed production control room desk.

"All 26 Module-R desks have hard-wearing grey Marmoleum work-surfaces and oak veneer. They incorporate desktop level 1U-wide rack-mounting equipment pods with up to 17U bays. Each of the production control desks is fitted with an integral video production mixer. The desks are variants of our normal Module-R range. They have the same high strength and rigidity as the standard Module-R series but are designed for easy transport and on-site assembly."

The Custom Consoles Module-R product range allows units to be configured to meet specific shapes and dimensions from a selection of pods, base sections, 19 inch rack housings, worktops, end-panel modules and legs. Coordinated desk pods are available as single-bay sections with up 10U chassis capacity.

Custom Consoles EditOne desks use sculpted MDF support panels rather than metal legs. Its curved theme is carried through to the desktop and a raised monitor shelf. Integral equipment pods are provided. An auxiliary equipment pedestal with an additional 11U of rack space and an integral worktop is available. Designed for flat-pack delivery, the desk can be assembled in less than an hour using the supplied Allen key and screwdriver.
