600-C Telecine Followers are the third generation of a line of
magnetic film recorder/reproducers that has become the world standard
for film-to-tape transfer and film sound recording.
Among the advanced features of Series 600-C Recorders and
Reproducers are DC, servo controlled supply and take-up drive systems
which permit operation at up to 10 times normal sync speed. In
addition, integral fly-wheel transports allow high acceleration in
both forward and reverse modes. And reel capacities are available for
up to 5,000 feet.
Control units of the Model 600-C Series have been completely
redesigned. The newest generation high speed CMOS integrated circuits
and longer life electro mechanical switches have been incorporated
into these machines for even greater reliability than before.
All 600-C Series Followers are compatible with earlier 600 Series
machines, and will operate in synchronization with these models. Older
machines can also be retrofitted to bring their performance up to the
level of 600-C Recorders and Reproducers.
Magna-Tech know-how and technology for over 35 years brings to you
the latest innovation by way of engineered efficiency of operations.
Built into all Magna-Tech 600-C Telecine Followers is the kind of
quality that studios have come to rely on through the years.
Sophisticated, thoughtful design provides all of the features
necessary to do the job easily and quickly. At the same time, these
new models contain 30% fewer mechanical parts that are subject to wear
than previous models. All 600-C components and parts must meet rigid
engineering specifications and are tested after manufacture for long
life and reliability. PC boards and other electronic components are
burned-in before final assembly as well. Finally, completed 600-C
Followers are run through their paces before shipment to the customer.
Magna-Tech Series 600-C Telecine Followers are backed by a
worldwide network of sales and service offices. Factory trained
technicians stand ready to assist in the installation, operational
training and in servicing of MTE machines. Throughout the long life of
the equipment, Magna-Tech service is available to keep customers'
equipment functioning at peak efficiency.
Film Drive System
Stepping motor sprocket drive. High-speed CMOS IC logic and control.
Flywheel accelerators for rapid film stability. Film retracted from
heads in all modes except sync speed forward for longer wear. 1OX
speed local or interlock. Sprocket de-clutch for start mark alignment.
Machine can be cued on and off running interlock buss with no
interruption to buss. 16mm, 35mm speeds push-button selected with
automatic equalization and flywheel accelerator speed compensation.
Interlock buss selection from six sources. One frame per second
advance/retard of film in local or interlock while in sync speed.
Local inching forward and reverse for accurate start mark alignment.
Reel Spindle Drive and Controls
DC Servo controlled film take-up tension. Dedicated wind and rewind
push buttons for rewinding film outside the sprocket. Automatic machine
shutdown If film breaks.
Through sprocket 3000 feet 4 minutes. Outside
sprocket 3000 feet. 2 minutes
