Re: Sound head of the 'Moviola'



Are you interested in the Moviola particularly, or optical audio in general? If the latter, then  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Movie_projector#Optical has a good basic intro to how traditional optical-encoded amplitude modulation works, as well as more modern Dolby Digital / SDDS / DTS digital-optical audio encoding. You may find more luck searching using terms such as "sound-on-film".


Sound Recording Practice (ed. John Borwick) (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sound-Recording-Practice-John-Borwick/dp/0198166087/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1293560292&sr=8-1) has a section on the technology used in audio reproduction for film as well, might be worth looking in your library for.

Subject: [AUDITORY] Sound head of the 'Moviola'



I am looking for information about the optical sound head of the movie-editing machine called 'Moviola'. http://www.alangordon.com/sales/used_equipment/editing_equipment/moviola_ud-20-cs.html

Specifically I would like to know about the working principle, how the visual marks are sonified using the optical head.

Thank you,
