Does is matter which way the Mac Pro is mounted into the rackmount kit?
That is entirely based on your configuration. For instance, if you have it in a rack with several other i/o interfaces installed that generate heat, then the air in the back of the rack is usually hot and thus you should place the Mac Pro so that it is drawing in cool air from the front. That way the heat from the the Mac Pro is pushed towards the rear of the rack.
Is this approved by AVID?
Yes. The Mac Pro Rackmount Kit is an easy way to place your Avid Approved ExpressBox 3T into a rack along with your Apple Mac Pro. Avid's Website.
Can the Mac Pro Rackmount Kit be installed in a mobile rack or roadcase?
Yes, however we recommend that you ensure all hardware is properly secured and protected for transportation.
How many rack spaces does it require?
The rackmount kit requires 4U of space. With the Magma ExpressBox 3T sitting up-right, 5U is required. However, there is enough room to put the EB3T on its side and use only 4U rack spaces.
