Custom Technical Furniture for Helix Energy Solutions

TBC provided custom technical furniture for Helix Energy Solutions' Canyon Offshore unit, a leading supplier of subsea engineering services, operating Remote Operated Vehicles (ROVs), seabed trenching and geotechnical vehicles, and support vessels.  

Incorporating all the relevant equipment and providing consoles that would be well suited for a moving vessel was a rewarding challenge for us.  Recent feedback reported that the employees are extremely happy with the IntelliTrac Consoles provided.

PBS network moves toward large screen displays in their facilities

Keeping up with the industry trend toward large screen displays, consoles and monitor walls are increasingly being outfit with large screen displays and multiviewers rather than individuals. 

Utilizing TBC's TracWall system, along with our versatile SmartTrac Consoles, these large displays at PBS are mounted on monitor frames and articulating arms.  Each display has the capability of monitoring 14 broadcast feeds at a time.  Similar to a multiviewer, the use of TBC's technical furniture in any broadcast facility provides the best "mousetrap" for displaying your content on these big displays while keeping ergonomics and space constraints in mind.

MTA Satellite Service for North America chooses TBC

TBC recently designed and installed a TracWall and Console system designed specifically for the transmission room at MTA Satellite Service, which broadcasts the Muslim TV channels throughout the United States.  The facility, located in Silver Spring, MD, required a specialized TracWall outfitted with curved monitors, as well as SmartTrac Consoles that incorporated drop wells for the monitors to ensure proper ergonomics and site lines.  File cabinets were provided instead of traditional SmartTrac legs which allows for ample storage space.    

Muslim TV is a subscription-based platform for anyone wishing to discover the Muslim culture, develop their knowledge of Islam and understand the various aspects of the religion.  More at https://www.muslim-tv.net/

Control Room Furniture for NASA White Sands Test Facility Laboratory

Since 2004, TBC has been working to offer state of the art technical furniture to all NASA facilities. Recent renovation to the White Sands Test Facility (WSTF) control rooms allowed for new ControlTrac LT consoles to be placed in their Remote Hypervelocity Test Laboratory (RHTL).  

Specified with a monitor stand for dual large screen monitors and a purtech edge, these specialty consoles are built to exact specification requested for this specialty testing area. The RHTL is an access-controlled area capable of simulating Micrometeoroid and Orbital Debris on spacecraft materials and components. The remote location of the WSTF allows for implementing test programs that project toxic or explosive materials in a controlled environment.

Mitchell Kress, FAFS, Editor, ABC News
I want to take a moment to say thank you to the team for the professional service provided to me as I walked through the process of buying my desk. I could have bought another desk as there are many out there on the market. What drove me to finally decide on this desk, from TBC Consoles, was the relationship. I never felt pushed into buying it the desk. Throughout the process I was educated and informed. I actually paid a visit to the Long Island home of TBC Consoles and I was so impressed by the entire manufacturing site. They took the utmost care with my product through the installation process. I'm sure that I have many more words that I can place here to describe what was and has been an awesome experience. I'll spare you those and just say that I highly recommend TBC Consoles. It will be a purchase that you will thank yourself for years to come.



Jim Marciano, Eng. System Sales, Video Corporation of America
The client is extremely pleased with your follow through from sales to delivery to installation. We greatly appreciate working with a company like TBC Consoles.



Juan Carlos Alcazar, Sales Director, Grupo Covix
TBC Consoles is a great partner to work with. The pre-sales support we got for our project in Mexico was outstanding, it helped us close our deal. We have a very happy end user!



Felix Pena, Director of Mechanical Engineering, CEI
As a system integrator we really appreciate and value TBC's easy to use templates for space planning and console layouts. TBC's modular and reconfigurable console architecture offers our clients a path for changes and growth.



Munir Ahmad, Director Americas, MTA International
The project turned out to be immaculately good. Thank you to all, it was nice working with you on our first project with TBC Consoles.



Louise Hogarth, Founder, Dream Out Loud Productions
Great service, innovative products, good prices - exceeded all my expectations. My rave review of TBC has been heavily influenced by my salesman who was top notch.



Tim Delaney, Station Engineer, Scottsdale City Cable 11
Unlike many of their competitors, TBC's ability to work within a very small and strangely configured floorplan made our choice simple. They promptly responded to our initial calls, made several revisions and suggestions to make the room more efficient, and the quality of the product is fantastic. The consoles arrived in great shape, the directions were easy to understand, and it fit together perfectly. The products fit perfectly in the new room and looks really good. This sale went off just as planned. Happy buyer.



Thomas Kotlarz, Electric Systems Dept, City of Concord
I had a wonderful experience with TBC, from the design process to the finished product everything was better than expected. The install was easy and the products are built solid. Very satisfied, everyone who tours our facility is taken away by our TBC consoles, we couldn't be happier.



Andrea Cummis, Project Manager, AC Video Solutions
Steve Struhs did a great job working with us to figure out the best solution for our new broadcast center. Everything looks amazing and the installers were terrific.



Prasad Khare, Senior Project Manager, Mustafa Sultan Security - Sultanate of Oman
We wish to place on record our honest appreciation, for the excellent support, co-operation and pro-active approach provided on large projects by the entire TBC team. We look forward to continuing our success with partners like TBC



Gary Backman, President, Imagine Integrations
It is always a pleasure working with TBC, your crew was absolutely awesome, your product is the best in the industry. You deliver on time every time, thank you and your staff. We just completed a project with Alpha Video and entire project went seamless from order to installation. I look forward to working with you in the future.



Dale E. Smiley, CPBE, WTHR-TV, WALV-TV SkyTrak
We are very pleased with the Console and I will recommend TBC when we redo our Production Control Room. Our 'PCR' has custom built wood consoles that have been modified several times on the change from full analog to full digital! The HD Production Switcher is 10 years old so we will be redoing in the next few years. I think TBC could make just what we need when that time comes.



Barry Steinburg, Principal, Xilica Audio Design
If you have any first time clients worried about shipping damage just give them my number (I am serious) and I will tell them from a customers perspective and they won't have to worry. The box and protection design is the best I have seen. Thanks everyone. Quality product. Quality staff. Quality shipping systems.



Nick Olson, Technical Director | Brandywine Community Church
Your product is amazing; packaged well, incredibly easy to assemble, and it looks and performs great!



Richard M., Lead Procurement /Subcontract Specialist | Bombardier Transport
I want to thank everyone at TBC that was involved in processing our rush order. This certainly will help us to meet our commitment. You folks really came through for us when we needed you!



Jeff Somerstein, Accord Productions
The console we received is AWESOME! The instructions for install were great and we will certainly be contacting you again in the future. Thanks again to Steve and the TBC team, you guys have a great product.



Joe Adams, Manager of Studio Ops, AOL Studios
I find myself interacting with dozens of vendors on a yearly basis. Of all these vendors, there are maybe two or three that I can say I honestly LOVE doing business with. TBC Consoles is one of these vendors. TBC Consoles is an outstanding vendor. Great products, great customer support, great company.



John Wen, Senior Application Engineer, Nearfield Systems Inc.
TBC's SmartTrac sit-stand desk made our software demo display look more professional and we look forward to working with them in the future.



April Reneé Bailey, Content & Production Coordinator, KAUST Visualization Laboratory
I have to say, that your forethought of affordance that has gone into the design and the superb adjustable tracking and wood craftsmanship is quite impressive. I am extremely pleased and will look for other solutions for our lab spaces from TBC.



Dan Goodell, Video Production/Classroom Technology Technician, Saginaw Valley State University
Just a quick note to thank you and your staff for the great service and great product. I love both of my desks that I ordered from your company. They have met all of my expectations.



Tom Gaede, President, ErgonomicHome.com
TBC's pricing is excellent and very competitive. I have been to the factory in Edgewood, New York, just outside of New York City, and met with the owners, and the employees. It is clear to me they have a very efficient operation with a highly qualified and dedicated staff.



Michelle Mathewson, Owner - Spazio Design Solutions
Install went smooth and the federal government customer is elated! Your team was extremely professional and I was truly impressed with them and the product. We will be using TBC for future projects.



David Crites, Owner - Glyph Corp
It is great to deal with a company that values customer service as much as fine craftsmanship. The design and build quality are top notch. Great products, and exceptional customer service. What more can you hope for?



Ralph Woods, Deputy Director of Operations - National Public Radio
I want to thank you folks for the excellent job that you all did for us–the consoles look GREAT! I am extremely pleased with all aspects of the order–the design, the workmanship on the consoles, as well as the expeditious and professional job that John and Alberto did to install the consoles. I am thoroughly convinced that my choice of TBC Consoles to design, fabricate, and install the operator’s consoles and turrets in NPR’s new Network Operations Center was the absolutely correct one!



Johan Pretorius, General Manager - Oculus Operational Innovations
Oculus Innovations is a specialised designer and turnkey provider of Operational facilities and Control Rooms, providing customers with a range of leading edge, intelligent and innovative control room solution. The robustness and flexibility of the consoles allows us to apply ControlTrac in Oil & Gas, Power and other industrial areas where we require robust industrial solutions and ‘under the counter’ space for Computer CPU boxes or other equipment. Oculus’ integrated operational facility solutions are enhanced by the use of all of TBC’s products and we are proud to be associated with them.



Karen Ranucci, Construction Project Manager and Board Chair - Democracy Now
We are tremendously happy with our TBC consoles. Their great ergonomics make our work much easier. They look fantastic and have transformed our broadcast facility to the highest professional level. And, best of all, since they are made from all green materials they have contributed to our topping the number of points needed for Platinum-level LEED Certification. Thank you all at TBC consoles for helping us fulfill our dream.



Gerard Sam-Zee-Moi, Head of Video Engineering - Blue Sky Studios/Fox Animation
Blue Sky had some very specific operational requirements that called for a customization of TBC's IntelliTrac and SmartTrac console systems. Working with the TBC Design team really made a huge difference and made this aspect of our project painless. Your team provided the perfect solution for our needs!



Mike Bivona, VP Engineering - MTV Networks
The project was a big success and the consoles were a big part of that...the truth is, you guy's did a great job



Glen Matthews, Lead NOC Analyst - Global IT Operations - Citrix Systems, Inc. - Fort Lauderdale, FL
Your people did a absolutely fantastic job with our implementation! Your guys went above and beyond and did an excellent job without any complaints what-so-ever. Many thanks to the team you sent! They are absolately top notch. I look forward to working with you in the future.



Paul Koopmann, Director of Engineering - Versus / NHL HD
TBC's Trac products delivered amazing technology in an incredibly comfortable and flexible console system.



Zack Arnold, President, Fix it in Post
I absolutely love the console, and if I had the money, I'd buy one for every editor I have. Having the option to both stand and sit is invaluable to me as it's eliminated all of my lower back problems. I simply can't edit without this console.



Geoff Poister, P.h.D - Film and Television Dept., Boston University
TBC Consoles' SmartTrac is exquisetly designed to enhance the efficiency of the production workspace...it is more than a console...it is a customizable work environment that, with the addition of other modules, can grow and change as surly as everthing else in the video/TV production world.

TBC supplies consoles to Nine-Network, Australia's new Media Exchange Gateway.  

TBC is recognized for excellence by our Australian clients:   "When the time came to design our new Media Exchange Gateway, we just couldn’t find a locally made product that came close to the IntelliTrac. The product combines superior form with great function, so it made sense to ship two consoles and TracWall units to Sydney and assemble them ourselves. The whole process was effortless from start to finish and the end result has exceeded all expectations. Thanks to Jerry, Steve and the TBC crew!”  - Jen Cooke, Nine Network Australia
