TV4 Sweden goes Custom28 August 2009
Custom Consoles has completed the design and construction of a large ,height-adjustable engineering control desk for Swedish independent broadcaster TV4.
The desk is configured in a U-shaped surround formation, allowing a powerful array of control and monitoring equipment to be installed within easy reach of a single supervisor.
“We have long and very positive experience of Custom Consoles furniture,” commented TV4’s Technical Director, Jonas Collsi?_. “Most of our requirements have been met from their standard ranges of desks but this particular installation, for Studio K3, was very unusual and called for a bespoke design. The wing-shaped desk supports six monitor displays which will be used to supervise machine control and Radamec studio camera robotics, as well as Mosart and ENPS playout systems. Custom Consoles has also incorporated equipment pods along the centre and right-hand desk sections to house audio monitoring, intercoms, waveform monitors and auxiliary equipment. The desk’s height adjustability will enable operators to set the desk to suit their preference.”
“This is one of the more complex bespoke height-adjustable desk systems we have supplied to date,” added Gary Fuller, sales manager at Custom Consoles. “It is finished in dark red with a blue Linoleum worksurface. Installation is due to commence at TV4’s Stockholm headquarters during August.”
