Custom Consoles Completes Module-R Lite Control Desks

News Image
Custom Consoles has announced the completion of two dual-operator Module-R Lite technical control desks for a major Swiss television broadcaster.

The desks have been integrated into a control room at the network's Geneva studios.

"We have completed many successful projects for this client over the years," says sales manager Gary Fuller. "We normally install Module-R and Module-R Lite furniture on customers' premises but coronavirus regulations this year motivated the network's technical team to assemble the desks themselves. All went well. The desks are configured for use in very space-efficient bridge configuration."

Largest of the two new additions is a 4 metre wide x 2.5 metre front-to-back L-shaped desk with nine bays including a 13U equipment storage pod forming the left-hand support pillar. A 6U desktop equipment pod is positioned above this bay, set at a 45 degree horizontal angle. An audio production mixer is set into the worktop. Six 24 inch video monitor display panels are mounted along the desk rear, each supported by an Ergotron operator-adjustable support arm. Nearfield active loudspeakers are centrally positioned on the longer of the two desk wings.

The second desk is 3 metres wide x 1 metre front-to-back with five bays plus a 13U equipment cabinet forming the right-hand pillar, in turn supporting a 6U desktop equipment pod. This desk is fitted with three Ergotron-mounted 24 inch video monitor displays and two centrally positioned loudspeakers. Both desks are equipped with knee-level storage bays for computers and related equipment.

Widely used throughout the broadcast industry, Custom Consoles Module-R offers a high level of choice in terms of desk size, configuration and facilities plus the freedom to expand or reconfigure desks at any time during their working life. Auxiliary pods of various sizes for broadcast industry standard 19 inch rack-mounting equipment can be specified for Module-R desks during the initial order or added as required. Individual elements such as desktops can be replaced easily. The inherent modularity of Module-R desks makes relocation relatively easy if or when a control suite is relocated.

Module-R design options include single, double or triple width base units, 15, 30, 45 or 90 degree angled corner units or curved desk sections at any specified radius. Control panels of practically any size and depth can be embedded into the desktop during installation or later. Equipment such as computers can be accommodated inside the desks and are easily accessible via removable front and rear cover panels. Power and signal cables can be fully integrated within every Module-R desk via transverse ducts across each frame and vertical ducts through the supporting legs.

Brush-strip-protected slots running the entire width of each desktop allow easy connection of cables to and from IT devices such as computer keyboards and tracking tools. Predrilled monitor mounts are included as standard along the rear of every Module-R frame. Customers can add, remove or relocate monitors to match changes in operating procedure during the desk's lifetime.
