Custom Consoles MediaWall Completed At London Studios
MediaWall Will Be Video Background To Network's News Programmes

Altered Images has completed a Custom Consoles MediaWall for the London production centre of the Al Sharqiya satellite channel. The MediaWall is being deployed as a video background to the network's news programmes.

Custom Consoles' MediaWall allows monitor displays of practically any width to be constructed from standard horizontal and vertical support elements. MediaWall 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 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.

"We operate six broadcast studios with a variety of video wall types," explained Al Sharqiya Group CTO Ahmed Bin-Afif. "This time it was a special requirement to create a curved video-wall with large screens. The Custom Consoles wall design if even more effective that we expected and is being used for a variety of shows, fed by a versatile server-based graphics system."

"The challenge was to create a very wide curving display which the studio cameras would see as a convincingly real element of the studio presentation," added Russell Butcher, Altered Images' Broadcast & Media Solutions Director. "MediaWall offers a modular approach to multiscreen displays that we know from experience are configurable to practically any scale as well as being highly robust. The requirement in this instance was for a 6.7 metre wide backdrop in a concave configuration giving wide-angle production options. We designed the display based on three MediaWall support frames, each two metres wide. These support a total of 18 55-inch NEC X series monitors which are ideal for this application, including features such as an ultra-narrow edge bezel and high-contrast imaging. The display is augmented in this application by LED light-boxes with adjustable brightness and colour temperature."
