Custom Consoles to deliver master control desk for Channel 4 Television

Channel 4 Television has chosen Custom Consoles to supply a broadcast master control room desk for its headquarters in London's Westminster.

Spanning nearly five meters, the desk is configured for single or dual person operation. The desk is built in 19-inch sections with full rear access and alternate-section front access.

It is composed of a broad central unit housing a touch-screen control system for the network's routing and device control. The left-hand wing is a general monitoring position for incoming line supervision and satellite receiver alignment. Right of center, an additional monitoring position is linked at 90 degrees. This is designed to allow easy expansion if needed.

Custom Consoles also supplied a matching floor-to-ceiling rack with wood and glass soundproofing to house PCs and a broad horizontal work surface.

Channel 4's MCR operates 24 hours each day, monitoring all incoming and outgoing broadcast signals for Channel 4 itself, E4 and Film 4.
