On the Table

Something substantial here in CanesVision has happened and I needed to share. We are getting actual technical furniture from TBC!

It may not seem like a big deal, but it is a rather big victory for CanesVision. The technical consoles are the "desks" that all of the production equipment positions are located at in the broadcast environment: i.e.--Director, Technical Director, replay, graphics, etc.

Up until yesterday, the debate was going on about using a technical console manufacturer or having someone coach someone through the steps to build a console from scratch. There are many issues to consider when building something like this from the ground up, including rack units and rail configuration, as well as power accessibility and cable management.

A contractor had originally stated that he could produce these consoles for a significant amount less than what we could purchase the TBC consoles for. However, through the course of several discussions with them and TBC contacting them directly, they were able to strike a deal and the furniture for the broadcast positions will be honest-to-goodness technical furniture!
