Systems are non-rewinding Film Transports capable of up to 4-1/2 hours
(on 52-inch diameter platters) of continuous 35mm film presentation. Since there is no rewinding and
the film is handled with minimum tension, always running at its normal
projection speed, film wear is virtually non-existent. Three-Deck
Platters are most common in the industry. The third deck allows
double-feature presentations when required, or acts as a
"spare" platter for advance make-up of the next presentation.
Film preparation is done using a separate Make-Up Table and can be
completed even while the system is in normal operation. A single Make-Up
table can be used with multiple Platters in a common projection booth.
42-inch (2 hrs 50 mins capacity), Five-Deck (for Single or Two Cinema
operation) and 35/70mm versions of the Platter are also
All systems feature interchangeable plug-in Payout Assemblies (two each
with three-deck systems). Two sizes of center rings are provided for
increased versatility during make-up and normal operation. Strong's
Platter Systems are well known for quality and reliable service with the
best possible film handling characteristics.
