IBC 2016: Custom Consoles MediaPost and EditOne take centre stage

Custom_Consoles_EditOne_deskCustom Consoles will show the latest additions to its broad range of technical control furniture at IBC2016. These include the MediaPost portable monitor mount which can be used both as a standalone display and to supplement larger multi-screen monitor walls. Exhibiting on stand 8.B38, Custom Consoles will be represented by Neil Reed (managing director), Graham Buchanan (business director) and Gary Fuller (sales manager).

MediaPost is a free-standing portable monitor mount matching the styling and rugged build quality of Custom Consoles’ established MediaWall. Monitor panels of up to 65-inch diagonal screen size can be accommodated as well as auxiliary devices such as loudspeakers. Other applications for MediaPost include studio floor monitoring, script display prompts and in-view studio backgrounds.

Each MediaPost is constructed from extruded aluminium profiles, black or silver anodised, forming a rigid 1.8m high column. These are supported by a 700 mm wide x 590 mm front-to-back base fitted with rear wheels to allow easy positioning. The base and a middle-height equipment shelf are finished in a matte black foiled coating. Loudspeaker mounts are available if required.

An optional horizontal beam matches the finish of the vertical columns. MediaPost is fully height-adjustable to ensure sight lines are optimised when using tilting screen mounts. Cables can be fully concealed behind removable covers. Like MediaWall, MediaPost comes with a two-year guarantee against component failure during normal use.

Also on show will be the latest version of the EditOne desk. This has an enhanced surface finish while retaining the distinctive horizontal and vertical profiles which have made EditOne a popular choice for video and audio postproduction suites. The new version follows the existing structural configuration but has powder-coated underside legs and pods. Work surface and shelf finishes are now available with oak-effect foil applied by a thermoform press which follows the precise contours of the base it to which it is applied.

The entire EditOne range of furniture is designed for flat-pack delivery which allows very fast despatch to site. Assembly can be performed quickly and easily by the customer using the supplied Allen key and screwdriver. An on-site assembly service is available.

Examples of Custom Consoles’ established Module-R user-configurable technical furniture and Media Wall monitor display mounting system will be promoted at IBC2016.

“Both these product ranges continue to be in very high demand forming the core of many broadcast control room installations around the world,” comments managing director Neil Reed. “Their ongoing success can be attributed to the experience we have gained in hundreds of projects we have been privileged to partner in since we commenced business 20 years ago.”
