If you want to 
communicate your 
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. 

distinguished performance 

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 
single unit. 

Dimensions— 15 7 /8xl2 3 /4Xll 1 / / 2 inches. 

Weight— 2 8 V 2 pounds for the projector; 35 V 2 pounds for the 
complete unit. 

Case Finish— Serviceable, scuff-resistant, crinkle-surface 
vinyl fabric. 

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. 

Sound and Silent Speeds— Constant speed motor for sound 
(24 fps) and silent (16 fps) projection.

Readily accessible on front of projector. 

Lamp— 750-watt (code DDB).1000- or 1200-watt lamp optional. 

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
