Custom Consoles: Step-up for self-supporting screen system12 September 2014
An enhanced Media Wall multiscreen mounting system has made its first European appearance at IBC2014.
Media Wall allows flat-screen monitor displays of a wide variety of widths to be constructed from standard horizontal and vertical support elements.
This latest version incorporates a series of improvements including narrower front-to-back depth, reduced from 600 to 500mm. It is fully self-supporting and offers the option of adding coupling brackets directly to the studio wall. Media Wall incorporates height-adjustable horizontal beams suspended between 2.3 metre high aluminium columns. Equipment pods with 19-in racking behind removable vented panels can be incorporated at floor-level.
Freely adjustable horizontal and vertical screen spacing replaces the former discrete-mount mounting holes. This allows individual display screens to be positioned so that their edges meet exactly to form a continuoushorizontal ‘monitorscape’, limited only by the boundary of the display itself.
Cable management within Media Wall is now along a PVC tray. All wiring is fully concealed and can enter or leave the structure at any desired point. Integral mains distribution units are available as an option. Custom Consoles’ VESA mounts allow easy front access when mounting small screens to Media Wall.
