Custom Consoles Announces EditOne Low-Cost Range of Edit-Suite Furniture

New Custom Consoles EditOne flat-pack self-assembly desk with full cable management and optional power distribution

Custom Consoles has chosen IBC 2013 in September as the launch venue for EditOne, the first in an entirely new range of low-cost flat-pack technical furniture.

"The development brief for EditOne was to create highly robust and elegant workstation and storage furniture for use in video editing suites and broadcast graphics areas," comments Custom Consoles managing director Neil Reed. "Our aim has been to achieve styling that would impress our clients and their customers while at the same time giving maximum possible value for money. The EditOne desk goes beyond traditional rectangular styling by using using sculpted MDF support panels rather than metal legs. The curved theme is carried through to the desktop and a raised monitor shelf, both of which are optimised for a centrally seated operator."

The EditOne desk incorporates three equipment pods with a collective nine units of rack space. These form the base of a monitor shelf. Full cable management is provided. Power distribution is optional. An auxiliary equipment pedestal with an additional nine units of rack space and an integral worktop is also being introduced.


Front and rear corners are the desk and auxiliary pedestal are curved, eliminating any possibility of collision with sharp protrusions and contributing to the ultra-modern appearance. The worktop and monitor base also have hard-wearing and operator-friendly curved edges at front, sides and rear. Finish is in oak with contrasting black powder-coated MDF.

All furniture in the EditOne range can be shipped in compact flat-pack form for onsite assembly by customers or systems integrators, saving space, cost and delivery time.

Custom Consoles will be represented at IBC2013 by Neil Reed (Managing Director), Graham Buchanan (Commercial Director) and Gary Fuller (Sales Manager).
