A Portable Presentation Package for Audio-Visual Instruction. Technical Documentary Report.
Smith, Edgar A.; And Others
The Portable Presentation Package is a prototype of an audiovisual equipment package designed to facilitate technical training in remote areas, situations in which written communications are difficult, or in situations requiring rapid presentation of instructional material. The major criteria employed in developing the package were (1) that the equipment be easily portable by one person, (2) that it utilize items available through established commercial channels, and (3) that components be assembled as modules to allow replacement or substitutions as units without interference with other components. The package contained the essential equipment required in preparing and giving audiovisual presentations to small groups. It was slightly larger than an attache case, weighed 23 pounds, included camera with light meter, projector with remote controls and extra lenses, a projector screen, tape recorder, cords and mirrors, and additional film and magnetic tape. Descriptions, illustrations, and an example for use are presented. (KB)
