Sound Slide Projectors (with Audio Cassettes). EPIE Report: Number 88e.
Educational Products Information Exchange Inst., Stony Brook, NY.
Over the last few years, a variety of fully integrated sound-slide projectors has been introduced to the market, and most of these are suited to educational and training use. Models included in EPIE's testing program met the basic criteria of (1) using standard 35mm slides and compact cassette tape; (2) having automatic synchronization between slides and tape; (3) being capable of having the program changed easily and rapidly; and (4) being a fully integrated design not incorporating any complete proprietary equipment. EPIE considers the 5 models tested to be representative of a total of l6 models. The first section of the report explains the detailed aspects in testing sound-slide projectors for optical performance, electrical and heating characteristics, sound reproduction, and cue tones and synchronization. The second part explains the testing methods use, and the final section presents individual reports of the laboratory test findings including a paragraph on equipment safety. (Author/MLF)
