Shot of the front side of the Matrix rack. The rear of the rack is loaded with the automation computers and also is where the various connections for the building automation reside. This rack also serves as the central library for the DCI content and preshow. Do note this system is designed to have ANY movie ready to play on ANY screen with a mere 8 minute warning. All the manager has to do on his end is to enter his desired show schedule into his ticketing system like normal, and the projection system follows it! (The Film-Tech NOC monitors the entire building and handles building the playlists and loading KDMs each week so the manager can concentrate on running the theater.)
