The Stancil/Hoffman sound reproduction unit with its 35mm fullcoat magnetic soundtrack -more information

The sound system was RCA with a rated output of 60 W per channel, coupled to a sound reader built by Stancil-Hoffman. For emergencies, the center projector had a magnetic soundhead reading a soundtrack mixed down to mono. It also read a 1,6 kHz control track for switching the surround channels. To achieve synchronism of all projectors and the soundreader, selsyn interlocking motors by General Electric were used. As the whole equipment package was designed to be mobile, all connections between the apparatus were carried out by means of plugs and rubber covered cables, greatly reducing the time required to assemble the lot.
