These machines will be of interest to television studios, post, effects and
title houses and small photofinishers. They are available for VNF1, ECNII, ECPII
(without redeveloped sound), Black & White, C41 and E6 processes in 8mm,16mm,

35mm ECN2 and 20 ft/min (370 m/h) for 16mm VNF1.
Construction of the structural components and chemical baths is in stainless
steel and titanium (where required by the process). Film transport is by means
of Photomec’s proven demand drive system. Magnetic-drive circulation and agitation
pumps are used with filtration for all baths.
The machine has been designed for easy one-man operation in daylight. The feed

end of film warning, developer circulation warning, film-break warning, and
elevator-position warning alarms are included.
