There are several versions of this projector. The P COM and the XENON are the latest (and best) versions of this projector. All versions also differ in their sound-related features:

  • "M"-Version: Records and plays back both magnetic soundtracks (mono, duo and stereo)
  • "MO"-Version: Records and plays back both magnetic soundtracks (mono, duo and stereo) + plays back optical soundtrack (mono)
  • "O"-Version: Plays back optical soundtrack (mono)
  • There are also some rare projectors that lack the record-feature.

[edit] Comments

  • You can replace the 3-bladed shutter with a 2-bladed one. This will increase the picture's brightness when projecting at 24fps, but will result in a "too flickery" 18fps projection.
