Porduction company CS Media has added Module-R desks from Custom Consoles to its newly upgraded Master Control Room.
The front MCR desk commissioned by CS Media is a 4 metre wide eight-bay inline unit with a 4U high sloping-front equipment pod occupying the rear of the middle two bays. It can be used simultaneously by up to three operators, and accommodates two 21:9 aspect ratio curved monitor screens plus two additional 4K monitors. All monitor displays are mounted on user-adjustable supports.
The rear control desk is a dual operator design with a 16:9 monitor at each position. It comprises four inline bays with a 3U high sloping-front rear-of-desktop equipment pod above each bay.
“Custom Consoles desks have a very good reputation for robust build, excellent ergonomics and attention to below-the-surface detail such as cable management,” said Colin Monk, technical director at CS Media.
“The Module-R series in particular is attractively styled to blend in with practically any production environment. Our production facilities are state-of-the-art IT–based so we were able to save space in the MCR by opting for the 95 cm front-to-back Module-R Lite rather than the 120 cm depth standard version. Both desks are surfaced in black Marmoleum with grey side panels and silver anodised legs. They blend in very well with the overall MCR styling we were keen to achieve.”
“CS Media recently chose Module-R desks for a successful third-party systems integration project so we were pleased that they made a similar choice for their own headquarters,” added Custom Consoles sales manager Gary Fuller. “Module-R continues to be in strong demand from broadcasters and independent production houses here in Britain and overseas.”
