CENTURY has more desirable features than any other equipment. You will find no "gadget improvements" on CENTURY equipment-everything is scientifically arrived at-to give you full dimensional reproduction of picture and sound, with trouble-free operation.

HIGH EFFICIENCY MECHANISMS. CENTURY proiectors require almost no maintenance. They contain fewer parts (10 gears where others require up to 23) in simple arrangement so that stress and wear are at a minimum. Fewer gears and shafts mean less trouble, lower maintenance, less vibration, sharper pictures . . . finer proiection.

CLEAN, TROUBLE-FREE OPERATION. CENTURY has reduced lubrication headaches. There are no oil sprays or oil baths to mess up film and proiection room. Oil-less bearings and glass-hard steel gears rule out bindups.

MAXIMUM LIGHT PROJECTION. CENTURY design fully utilizes the

advantage gained from the use of highpower arc lamps and high speed lenses.

WATER-COOLED PROJECTOR APERTURE. An exclusive CENTURY development which is optional equipment on all CENTURY proiectors. It increases screen illumination and reduces film distortion and focusing trouble.

Eu U I E need to disturb the location of existing equipment, there are no

hazardous exposed shafts, gears or chains and there is no maintenance problem. The CENTURY interlock can be quickly engaged or disengaged for 3-dimensional or 2-dimensional presentations.
