The Bad

  • The Christie Integrate Media Base (IMB) is designed on the Windows XP micro computer.
    • The system is long out of support
    • The system has to be network isolated to prevent computer viruses
  • The IMB hardware relays on a small battery to keep the configuration information.
    • Our equipment partner has informed the BDT that over 30% of the Christie IMB batteries they support have failed.
    • Once the battery fails the system will loss its configuration and there is no hope of restoring it
    • The battery can not be replace because as soon as it is removed the configuration information is lost.
  • BDT has about two months of operating capital in the bank.
    • Concessions have to be completely restocked.
    • After a year of “Skeleton Operations” the BDT bills are accumulating quickly
