Custom Consoles chosen for Mediahouse/IMG HD control rooms
UK: Gearhouse Broadcast’s Systems Integration division has chosen Module-R bespoke furniture from Custom Consoles for the two new HD control galleries at the Mediahouse division of IMG Worldwide. The new installation is equipped to deliver round-the-clock coverage of major-league football to UK broadcasters and doubles the number of HD-capable studios at Mediahouse.
“Custom Consoles’ Module-R product series gives us the flexibility to design and deliver a matching system of high-quality desks, monitor walls and storage bays without the severe cost overhead normally incurred when installing bespoke furniture,” comments Kevin Moorhouse, Chief Operating Officer at Gearhouse Broadcast. “The new installation at Mediahouse consists of four-operator and five-operator master control desks plus an 18-screen Media Wall; a three-operator desk including lighting control and 12-screen Media Wall; plus a single-operator sound control desk with twin desktop rack bays. Equipment housed in the desks includes a 3D-capable Sony MVS-8000 vision switcher, Yamaha DM2000 audio mixer, Miranda routers, Vutrix monitor splitters and Axon glue.”
A mix-and-matchable control room furniture system, Custom Consoles’ Module-R product range allows aesthetically pleasing and long-life control-room desks to be produced from a selection of high-quality pods, base sections, 19 inch rack housings, worktops, end-panel modules and legs. Co-ordinated desk pods are available as single-bay sections with up 10 rack-unit chassis capacity. Module-R cabinets are constructed from high-quality veneered MDF. Other features include continuous brush-strip cable access to front worktops, ventilated front-access panels and hardwood worktop edging.
