SINGAPORE -- Oct 9, 2012 -- Ideal Systems Singapore, the newest division of Ideal Systems, a world leader in broadcast facility design, announced completion of its first cutting-edge broadcast interior for a major Singapore broadcaster.
Ideal uses advanced design software as part of a multi-step design approach consisting of building virtual 3D models of complex broadcast control rooms and rendering them into almost lifelike 3D views of the finished rooms. The result is that broadcasters can not only visualize the look of their new facilities but also confirm the layout and spatial array of racks of equipment and multiple displays in their broadcast and studio control rooms. Ideal's design team takes into account all operator technical requirements as well as the function of the equipment to be used in each room, before custom designing and manufacturing all broadcast furniture and consoles.
"The utilitarian interiors of past master control rooms looked more like the control rooms of nuclear power stations," said Fintan McKiernan, CEO of Ideal Systems Singapore. "Operations areas are now being brought into the 21st century by incorporating highly functional, ergonomic, and aesthetic interiors that enhance the transition of broadcast equipment to centralized software-based systems, allowing control room operators to do more from one or two PCs than ever before."
Ideal Systems' new ergonomic control rooms provide a much more comfortable workspace for control room operational staff, with greater attention being paid in the design process to operator line of vision and reach. Because the operator's range of motion is built into the design process before the rooms are built, the facilities are operationally ready without the need for retrofitting and remodeling.
McKiernan also observes, "With more and more channels in Asia going to 24-hour coverage and with live feeds arriving continually, there is a consistent increase in round-the-clock shift workers in broadcast facilities. Those operators require a considerably higher level of comfort in their work environment, which is essential for both their health and operational performance."
