In 1912, Herman A. DeVry invented the world’s first portable 35 mm movie projector and changed the face of cinema at the time. His inventions not only made it possible to set up touring cinema road shows, in-flight (or on-train) entertainment, and drive-in movies theaters but their portability also made them a popular choice for the military, schools, and churches–mainstreaming the use of multimedia as a communication tool. During World War II, the DeVry Corporation earned 5 army flags for excellence in production and quality. It was the only motion picture equipment manufacturer to do so.
As part of the Model 2810 Super XD series, the Model 2811 features a built-in soundhead and 1000 watt Mazda illumination. This popular, semi-portable could accommodate 35 mm Cinemascope film and could be field-converted to the “10” Professional Theater series. Measuring 4.33 feet high, its sturdy construction and Chromium-coated film-bearing surfaces ensure high-quality playback with minimal wear on film. Perfect for maximizing the life of your hard-to-find film reels!
The series is also noted for its relatively quiet playback and silent changeovers.
This projector is ideal for the classic movie lover with a big media room!
