THE KODAK PAGEANT SOUND PROJECTOR, MODEL AV- 126 -TR/PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS
■ yi;Sy ? '
W y\y >
If you want to
ideas with all the
clarity, directness and
memorability that movies
make possible, use
a projector that always
works, that never distracts.
Such a projector is the Kodak Pageant Sound Projector, Model AV-126-TR.
It’s easy to see the extra care Kodak has taken
to consider the needs of the people who actually
use projectors. Take setup, for example . . .
The Pageant Projector is put together so that
you have no parts to attach, or find or lose or wonder
about. Everything’s there, in one self-contained
package— even the power cord. And because it’s
about twice as long as most other cords, you
won’t get caught short without an extension. Setup
with a Pageant Projector is merely a matter of
unfolding the reel arms and plugging in the cord.
Politely, this projector shows you how the film goes.
Just follow the red line when you thread it, and you’ll
never have to ad lib your way into a movie again.
You won’t ever be able to forget how easily this
projector starts and stops. One button for sound.
Push it. Instantly you’re ready for full-bodied sound.
There’s one big master control lever. Throw it all the
way forward. . . . the show is on! Lights. Action.
Sound. Want to analyze a special section of your
film? Just shift the lever back and forth.
You won’t damage your film or your projector.
There are no warnings, no special do’s and don’ts,
no special operating advice, no projectionist
secrets to share. Nothing for you to remember
except its carefree performance. And that,
you’ll find, is hard to forget.
The sound system in the Kodak Pageant Sound Projector
is completely transistorized. There are no tubes to burn out.
None to interrupt your showings. None to take time
warming up while your audience waits. None to hiss and
crackle as they age. The Pageant Projector has the same
kind of relied-upon circuitry used in space satellites.
And the sound you hear is the purest that can be recorded
on 16mm film. At low volumes, at peak volumes,
this projector speaks clearly and with authority
the instant you push a button.
Need a public address system? Well, this projector’s sound
system functions as one for “live” voice announcements,
narration, or recorded material. Do you show movies in
king-sized auditoriums? You can if you have Kodak’s
auxiliary twin speakers.
The picture your audience sees is rock-steady. It’s brilliant,
yet has no eye-fatiguing “hot spots.” Image brightness is
uniform from corner to corner and from corner to center.
And thanks to an efficient shutter design, the picture is
fully visible in hard-to-darken rooms.
Everything considered, this is the projector that really
does its job , . . flawlessly, while staying quietly
in the background.
Like the sea, there’s a certain agelessness about the
components in the Pageant Projector’s sound
system. Ageless transistors. Ageless solar cell.
Even the sound exciter lamp should last the life of
the projector. This is the sound system you should
never have to fix. And because mechanical parts
which are subject to wear cost so little to replace,
maintenance costs are negligible.
Many of the schools who use Pageant Projectors
in their daily film programs have told us that the
savings on maintenance alone have enabled them to
expand their audiovisual program material or
purchase additional pieces of equipment without
increasing their original AV budget.
Another important point: This projector actually
protects your film. Its gears, sprockets and idler
wheels never jerk the film, even on start-up.
No stationary part ever touches the area of the
film that contains the picture or sound track,
so your films will last longer.
You see, value — total value— was one of Kodak’s
primary goals in designing the Pageant Projector.
The others, of course, were to provide operational
simplicity and fail-safe performance.
Single-case Outfit— Projector and speaker are combined in a
Dimensions— 15 7 /8xl2 3 /4Xll 1 / / 2 inches.
Weight— 2 8 V 2 pounds for the projector; 35 V 2 pounds for the
Case Finish— Serviceable, scuff-resistant, crinkle-surface
Power Requirements— 105-125 volts; 60 cycles.
Film Capacity— 2,000 feet, 16mm.
Operating Controls— Single, 5-position switch operates mo-
tor and lamp circuits for forward and reverse projection.
Push-button on sound control panel turns on sound. Volume
and Tone Controls compensate for a wide range of acoustic
Threading— Simple, straightforward, from supply reel
through mechanical and sound system to take-up reel. Loop-
former speeds threading, lets you restore “lost” loops with-
out stopping projector.
Reel Arms— Permanently attached and hinged to facilitate
Film Protection— Sprocket clamps have Tenite rollers. No
stationary parts contact picture or sound-track areas.
Film Movement— Nonskip-type, ball bearing, pivoted, tan-
dem-tooth movement. Special tungsten carbide pulldown
tooth assures long life.
Film Take-up— Self-compensating, pivoted spindle arm . . .
adjusts automatically for all size reels and loads.
Framing— Effected by moving pulldown point. Recentering
of image not required.
Rewind-Motor driven. Smooth, safe. No transferring belts
or reels. Rewind lever gives 100% protection against thread-
ing in the rewind position.
Gate-Easy-out, with finger-tip pull. “Floating pressure” de-
sign provides optimum handling of films.

Illumination— Efficient, straight-line optical system provides
brilliant illumination. Condensers and projection lens are
Super-40 Shutter— Automatic-shifting three- and two-blade
shutter provides optimum projection at sound and silent
speeds. 40% extra illumination at sound speed.

vides full ventilation for both forward and reverse projec-
tion with the standard 750-watt and higher wattage lamps.
Lubrication— Mechanism is “lubricated for life” by oil-im-
pregnated bearings, sealed ball bearings and oil-retaining
Quiet Operation— Nylon gears and a minimum of moving
parts assure quiet, trouble-free operation. Permanent lubri-
cation keeps operation quiet.
