FRAME COUNT CUING SYSTEM

A new Frame Count Cuing System which is adaptable to most printers was recently introduced by Peterson Enterprises, Inc. It provides cue signals for the activation of automatic scene-to-scene light changes, fades and dissolves at the exact chosen frame line, therefore, eliminating the need for all notches or metallic patches on the film negative.

The system includes Bi-directional Counting and Tape Reading for use on panel printers; it accoommodates Super 8, 16mm or 35mm films, designed for both "Milestone and Batch" mode operation; Built-in Digital Display, FCC/ Program Tape discriminator; and Integrated Circuitry throughout. Two different models are available, one for counting "Frames Only" and one for counting both "Feet and Frames".

For further information contact Peterson Enterprises, Inc., 1840 Pickwick Avenue, Glenview, Illinois 60025.

Frezzi Viewfinders are not in production at the plant in Hawthorne, New Jersey U.S.A.
