Custom Consoles Furniture Chosen For Cosmos Television In Romania

Custom Consoles, a leading European manufacturer of broadcast studio furniture, has completed a substantial contract for Romanian broadcaster Cosmos TV.
The order consists of a two production control desks, two audio desks plus a master control desk and an ingest desk. All six designs are based on Custom Consoles' Module-R series.
The furniture was ordered by Winchester-based systems integration specialist Broadcast Networks as part of a major expansion of technical facilities at Cosmos Television's premises in Bucharest. All six desks have removable vented front-access panels and rear-access doors. Each is finished in maple with hard-wearing blue Marmoleum work surfaces. Vertical support is provided by silver-finished extruded aluminium legs with integral cable ducts. Equipment pods, where fitted, have slanted front surfaces for optimal angle of view.
Largest of the six designs are two seven-bay production control desks with four front-to-back vertical supports. The work-surface of each desk is pre-cut to accommodate the control panel of a Sony MVS8000G multiformat production switcher.
Three 19-inch rack pods are located at the rear of the desktop, each with 5 U capacity. Three additional 3 U pods plus a 1 U pod are located to the rear of the central worktop area.
The master control desk incorporates five equipment pods to the rear of the worksurface and recesses for four control panels pre-cut in the desktop itself. Four of the pods are capable of holding up to 3 U of equipment. The fifth pod, located at top right, has 6 U capacity.
Similar in size and design to the MCR desk, the ingest desk has four control panel cutaways, two 6 U equipment pods and three centrally-positioned 3 U pods.
The two audio control desks are four-bay structures with a 5 U equipment storage pod at the right and left ends of the worksurface and space for a centrally-located recessed audio mixing control system.
Tom Haye, Chief Engineer at Broadcast Networks, said: "We have sourced technical furniture from Custom Consoles for several major contracts. Their desks and storage furniture are very well made, including careful attention to such details as equipment access, ventilation, cable ducting and structural durability. The Module-R series is a particularly useful range of designs as it enables essentially bespoke furniture to be commissioned from a standard series of interlocking components. It gives us the twin advantages of fast delivery and excellent value for money."
