This is the first generation of these automated racks designed and built by Film-Tech. They are 3 feet deep because there is equipment both front and rear loaded in them. Future versions of the racks to be available this summer will be greatly simplified, fully pre-programmed and designed for an effortless installation! (Hey, we had to build a system once to prove it could be done, then we streamline it.)
