AFI SILVER THEATRE AND CULTURAL CENTER Silver Spring, Maryland
The next rack clearly shows why Ethernet switches belong in the back of a rack (as do Ethernet patch bays)!
The patch bays (Cinema audio), Video’s audio monitoring, Rane Mixer (general purpose), Dolby SDU4 (analog Pro-Logic), Dolby DMA8, Dolby DP572 (Dolby-E), Dolby DP564 (AC3/PCM), THX D1138 (monitor and crossover), DA20 and DTS-XD10 (audio and CSS functions) are in the next rack. The A/V matrix switcher is at the bottom (AutoPatch).
