This model was based on the concept of “a desk-top projector”, or a TV-style projector enabling daylight viewing.

The black “daylight screen”, which took five years to develop, was the key feature of this system. Specially treated to improve diffusion, contrast and anti-reflection, the screen delivered brighter images than contemporary TVs.

Users could switch between Regular 8 and Super 8/Single 8 using a lever.
