Custom Consoles has announced the completion of a project for Azerbaijan Parliamentary Television at the National Assembly in Baku. Commissioned by specialist broadcast systems integrator ProMix, based in the same city, the new installation includes three rectangular Module-R technical control desks and a 3.8 metre wide MediaWall monitor display mount.
"All three desks as well as the MediaWall were pre-assembled at our UK factory and then delivered to ProMix, who then installed the desks in the parliamentary TV studio control suites and integrated the technical equipment," said Gary Fuller, sales manager, Custom Consoles.
Largest of the three desks is a 4.7 metre wide five seat unit incorporating an Allen & Heath audio mixer, Telemetrics robotic camera controller, Ross Carbonite Black video production switcher, Cinegy playout, ingest, CGs and auxiliary engineering facilities. Located in the master control hall, this is equipped with two sloping-front equipment pods, 3 U and 4 U capacity respectively, plus an additional 4 U pod at the producer's seat to hold programme-related documentation. Six computer monitors are mounted on Ergotron adjustable arms behind the main work surface. The desk front is parallel with the MediaWall display. Second of the three Module-R designs is a 4 metre wide four-seat control desk for use by two producers and two engineers. Both engineer positions have a worktop-embedded Telemetrics robotic camera controller, and each producer has immediate access to a Ross Carbonite Solo switcher and an audio mixer.The third desk is 3.6 metres wide and configured for use by three media management staff assigned to video editing and archiving.

It is supplied with full cable management and internal 19 inch racking, accessible via removable front and rear cover panels. All rear surfaces and pods are completely interchangeable.
