For those who bookmark the forum directly and only occasionally check the main page, Film-Tech is now offering equipment manuals for downloading in Adobe pdf format. Currently there are 100 items for download exceeding over 100 MEGS. We will be adding more as time permits and as readers send in obscure manuals.

Once the file is downloaded, you can click the save command to keep it on your hard drive and/or print it out for field reference. Hopefully these manuals will assist many people who have lost their copies or never had them to start with.

I would like to especially thank Ken Layton for the Adobe program used to convert these manuals into pdf format. Thank you Ken!

These manuals are fantastic! The quality is much better than I thought it would be. Not everyone will get excited by manuals, but I sure think it's cool! Thanks!

Great! A much-needed resource. I hope you don't mind if I refer others to the site for information such as this. (I just had a query from a projectionist in New Zealand looking for "lacing" information for various projectors).

Spreading the knowledge is what it's all about! Feel free to refer whomever is in need of such instructions. The exchange of information such as is found on the forum and in the manual downloads will ultimately assist everyone in providing superior presentations.

I will try to supply the following in the future:

Christie CA-21 Automation
Strong barcode (UA and WB) automation
Dolby Digital EX SA-10
DTS-ES Extended Surround

Maybe some others that I can't think of right now. Provided, of course, that Brad sends these manuals back, but I am sure he will.

Is anyone interested in some really ancient manuals? If so, I'll send the following off to Brad: Super Simplex (operation and parts), Brenkert BX-40 and BX-80, Enarc carbon-arc lamphouse, Simplex X-L (circa 1960), Century SA (circa 1960), Century R3 and R4 soundheads, RCA Photophone sound system (1940), and probably some other stuff. More recently, I also have a CP-50 manual (complete) and CP-500 manual. Brad--let me know if you want to add any of these. Also have Simplex X-L magsound manual, complete with schematics (circa 1960).

The easiest way to convert manuals to pdf is through photocopies (single sided). This greatly speeds up the process, as I can put the stack into the scanner and let it do it's thing. If anyone can provide photocopies, that would be perfect.

Alternatively, Ken has been sending them pre-scanned as PaperPort files, which I can decode and convert.

E-mail me directly if anyone has manuals to contribute. Thanks.
