Custom Consoles completes Module-R desks for new production suites at NEP Worldwide Netherlands
NEP Worldwide Netherlands has chosen 10 Custom Consoles Module-R technical control desks for a new production facility at its studio headquarters in Hilversum’s Media Park. The installation will be deployed primarily for television coverage of sports events at locations around the globe.
“NEP has proved a very loyal customer over the years and we are very pleased to have been chosen to help equip them for this project,” says Custom Consoles sales manager Gary Fuller. “In addition to the three desks provided for these new suites we have supplied seven editing desks for use by NEP’s post-production team.”
The front control desk in each of the two production control rooms is a 7m-wide inline Module-R configured with a 3U high sloping-front equipment pod along the rear of each of its 13 bays, along with a bespoke section to house a Grass Valley vision mixer. Positioned in parallel behind this is a 7.2m-wide 14-bay desk of similar design.
Three additional 3.6m-wide seven-bay inline desks provide supporting production control facilities.
Two audio suites are equipped with a U-shaped Module-R desk. These desks have been configured to accept Lawo audio production control panels.
Also supplied and installed was a 3.6m-wide inline vision control desk for a video control room. This desk is constructed as seven bays with 3U high equipment pods along each bay and includes two groups of camera control panels.
All 10 Module-R desks have matching graphite Marmoleum worktops, grey side-panels and silver-anodised extruded aluminium legs with black-painted floor skids.
A mix-and-matchable control room furniture system, Custom Consoles’ Module-R series enables aesthetically attractive and long-life broadcast control-room furniture to be configured to meet specific shapes and dimensions from a selection of high-quality pods, base sections, 19in rack housings, worktops, end-panel modules and legs.
