This machine stands out alone from all the other famous makers of 16mm projectors like Bell & Howell, Eiki/Elfs, Elmos, and Siemens. The main reason for this is a number of factors that you will not find on any other projector. This projector was mainly used for highly professional specialised studio usage. Thou it also could be used for home use easily.

Some of the advantages of this projector are:-

High quality sound one of the best sounding projectors ever produced very high frequency detailed sound compared to any other portable projector. With additional switching for magnetic or optical sound playback.

The 3 claw mechanism is ideal for running films that are warped with either worn or torn sprocket holes. As well as keeping the film lodged in the film gate for smooth running.

End of film power cut-off

The projector stops automatically the moment the end of the film has passed the film gate. Useful when watching a film unattended .

Film Break Switch

The projector will stop automatically if the film should break during a showing (due to a bad splice). This arrangement will prevent any further damage to the film.

Fast speed rewind by just sliding a lever forward just above the threading pilot light. One of the fastest rewinding projectors around.

Lens gate completely opens for easy cleaning of the gate after showing a film. Or when a film needs to be manually unthreaded.

This projector can run films at 18 frames per second for silent home movies or 24 frames per second for commercial available film. This function is also handy when transferring film to HD or DVD.
