Malaysian broadcaster installs Custom Consoles

Custom Consoles has completed the second of two major contracts to supply studio furniture for Malaysia-based broadcaster Astro All Asia Network, a content creation, aggregation and distribution company.

Both orders were placed in partnership with UK-based systems integrator ATG Broadcast. The first was for a total of 30 desks installed in 2006 at Astro’s Cyberjaya Broadcast Centre (CBC). The latest contract is for an additional 30 desks, which have been installed at Astro's All Asia Broadcast Centre (AABC) at Kuala Lumpur. All 60 desks are from Custom Consoles' Module-R range.

The newly installed furniture at Astro’s Kuala Lumpur facility includes three ingest control desks with VTR racks, two editing desks with a 22RU acoustic rack, 10 compliance desks with divider screens, subtitling and ingest supervisor desks. It also features a six-position transmission control desk, transmission supervisor desk, 13-position master control desk, four reactive-suite dual desks, four voiceover desks, a lines desk and a large number of auxiliary fittings (including 55 Ergotron adjustable monitor arms).

Custom Consoles’ Module-R product range is a mix and match control room furniture system combining aesthetically pleasing style with high durability. The desk pods are available as single-bay sections with up to 10RU chassis capacity.
