Network Operations Center
The Network Operations Center at Ballantyne Strong stages a command performance for the company’s dramatic business shift to installing and servicing digital movie equipment. The 3500 square foot facility, manned 24/7, monitors and controls cinema equipment around the world. Service technicians track the operation of their installations on huge video screens spanning across the front wall of the Center. Located in the center of the company’s production area, special acoustic construction effectively isolates the Center from the noise of the surrounding activity. A flip of a switch activating a wall of privacy glazing reveals a view of the activity in the Center to observers in the upper level Executive Conference Room, a space that features state-of-the-art audio-visual communications.
