I’m glad to read that they decided to treat centre the same as LR. I’m a firm believer of full range LCR, and consider the centre speaker the most important speaker in a surround system.
Amen, I dislike surround mixes with a weak center. A "virtual center" is just not the same-illusion instead of real.

I have never seen a surround sound studio to not have a centre speaker. If a virtual works why not its not used at the studio?

Thanks for sharing!
Here is a photo report from a 2017 visit to a similar facility (Genelec demo location) in London, UK.

The London facility is more of a showroom than the US one, which is more of a single studio.
