NEW COLOR PRINTER INTRODUCED

A new Full Immersion Wet Continuous Contact Color Additive Panel Printer was recently introduced by Peterson Enterprises Inc., 1840 Pickwick Ave., Glenview, III. 60025.

The printer specifically designed for the reduction or elimination of existing base scratches, abrasions, or cinch marks on negatives also reduces "white spots" that are caused by negative dust or dirt. Both the picture negative and the rawstock are fully immersed in the picturehead tank while traveling in contact over the aperture assembly. The aperture is on the top side at 12 o'clock, the same as in all Peterson Panel Printers, allowing for ease of threading in a similar straight-through threading path.

The soundtrack is printed dry and is therefore printed prior to the picturehead. The soundtrack negative is therefore never subjected to the wetting agent used in the printing of the picture negative.

The wetting solution used is a vapor degreasing grade of Perchlorethylene which is contained in two stainless steel tanks: one Reservoir Tank and a Fill Tank. Float level switches in the Reservoir Tank activate light on the front panel indicating solution level. The Fill Tank is a gravity-feed tank which assists the pump in filling the picturehead tank. Time elapsed in filling the picturehead tank when making ready for printing is one minute and a like time is required for draining. In-line liquid level sensors maintain a constant level of solution in the printing tank at all times.

This printer is of the modular concept and many of the accessories such as Soundhead, Fader, Frame Count Cuing or R.F. Cuing and automatic light valves systems can be added if so desired.

In commenting on the purchase, AGE Inc. President Grant Loucks said, "The name Bell & Howell has long been synonymous with outstanding photographic equipment and we are pleased to be able to continue to offer one of the most popular camera lines ever developed by B&H.

"We feel the B&H 70 and 71-Design cameras are vital tools for the professional cinematographer and in addition to supplying new cameras, we will have available all parts plus the service and repair that was previously provided by Bell & Howell," Loucks added. …
