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".
