Custom Consoles EditOne Desks For 'Mars 1001'

News Image
Custom Consoles EditOne desks have been selected for the mission control room set in Mirage3D's virtual reality 360 degrees and fulldome film 'Mars 1001'.

Scheduled for release in June 2018, 'Mars 1001' centres on space reporter Miles O'Brien guiding viewers through a 1,000 day mission to fly a crew to Mars and return them safely to Earth. The production will be available in fulldome, flat screen and VR formats.

EditOne was developed for use in video editing suites and broadcast graphics areas. It uses sculpted MDF support panels rather than metal legs, and the curved theme is carried through to the desktop and a raised monitor shelf, both of which are optimised for a centrally seated operator. The EditOne desk incorporates three equipment pods with a collective nine units of rack space. These form the base of a monitor shelf. Full cable management is provided. Power distribution is optional. An auxiliary equipment pedestal with an additional nine units of rack space and an integral worktop is also available.

"We researched the available desks online and at IBC," said Robin Sip, Mirage3D Founder and CEO, who has produced the new film. "EditOne has exactly the modern high-tech look we were seeking plus the practical advantage that it ships as an easily assembled flatpack. We purchased four desks and expanded this to 30 using our green-screen skills. We changed the actors and extras and props for every recording. You won't see the joins."

"We have supplied desks to a very large number of production studios, post houses, broadcasters and playout service providers over the years but this is the first time they have intentionally appeared on camera," added Gary Fuller, Sales Manager, Custom Consoles. "The effects achieved by Mirage3D are extremely impressive and demonstrate how far traditional television can be developed as virtual reality becomes increasingly popular."
