This 5'' Fresnelite is much smaller and lighter than the standard "Polaris," yet maintains the same high quality and optical performance of Strand Century's Bambino line of instruments.

Polaris Bambino accommodates both 120V and 220 or 240V lamps from 500 to 1000 watts. Supplied complete with 12 feet of cable and inline switch. Full line of accessories available. Overall dimension: 9''(W) x 14''(H) x 10''(D). Weight including cable: 8 lbs.

Other Strand Century/laniro Bambino Fresnelites Fresnels include: 6'' (2KW), 10'' (5KW), and 15'' (10KW).

For further information, contact Strand Century, Inc., 20 Bushes Lane, Elmwood Park, New Jersey 07407, (201) 791-7000; or 5432 West 102nd Street, Los Angeles, California 90045, (213) 776-4600.


Even complex multi-image productions may now be moved with relative ease from one location to another with the new Tour Director, introduced by Spindler & Sauppe, Inc., North Hollywood, California. The four-projector Tour Director system is capable of playing back sophisticated Director 24-Z productions, complete with Dolby stereo, yet the entire package weighs only a few pounds and travels neatly under an airline seat.

The system may be used with integrated "live" and "canned" presentations as well as totally automated productions. The high quality cassette deck and ADX decoder can play back ADX digital information from either the Director 24-Z or the new S & S Director 12-Z and a ribbon cable output makes possible the automation of up to 16 projectors.

The built-in dissolve has remote control sequential operation either forward or reverse for a 2 or 4 projector loop, plus tape re-start.

The Tour Director includes full stereo power amps with Dolby noise reduction system and full-time P.A. A specially designed case accommodates 3-way stereo speakers, P.A. mike, remote controller, and cables.

For further information, contact James W. Hulfish, (213) 764-1800, or write Spindler & Sauppe, Inc., 13034 Saticoy St., North Hollywood, CA.
