This looks like it was uploaded recently. The lamp house is rather large and off center I wonder where the lamp and reflector sit inside, it looks like the xenon lamp if it is inside the lamphouse sits further back then the stock UHP lamp originated.
I see the external power supply in the back. Looks like they removed both the payout and takeup arms to make room for the lamphouse and went with the full play system. The electrical connections look well done, nice conversion.

It looks like the Winnebago of Projectors!! [Smile] I wonder how much it weighs? And all that light for such a little screen? So many questions..so little answers!
Pretty innovative however!

Alan all good questions. I wonder how much light makes it through the gate. The Fumeo does not have a shutter, with that much light you would have to very careful to not pause the film with the lamp ignighted.

Looks superb from what I'm reading but sadly the video classes itself as "unavailable" here at least. [Frown]

Thanks Steven! Even got my Glitter Ball out for this one once I could view it! [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Wink]

Marvelous bit of kit! Weren't that same mains plug used by Doc in Back To The Future? [Big Grin]

Note the careful placement of the fire extinguishers! [Wink]

The panel over the gate assembly says "Fumeo 9129 telecine 2v". What exactly is this model? designed for?

Maurice Ive never seen this model before as well.
I did see something similar pictured on this site but you must scroll down a ways.
I think they have every projector ever made on this site

Interesting site there Alan!

In the October 2007 issue of "International Movie Making" Ignacio Benedeti Corzo said ... "One of the best features of the Fumeo company is that all their range of projectors were built individually, I mean by this that each projector was made to my own special requirements."

This is an interesting comment. Perhaps this may explain why it is difficult to find details of all Fumeo models.

I worked on a Fumeo 8/S8 telecine (see pict.) which was equiped with an electronic projector without a cam but an electromagnet synchronized with the video equipment. The picture was projected directly in an Ikegami digital camera. The picture was really good (depend of the film). I made a test with a Derann print, the result was really outstanding. The lamp was a quartz 100w which can be changed for a 150w for normal projection. The only problem was the 8mm sound : the head gap was for S8 (20 frames) not for 8 (52 frames). It runs for 5 to 30 pictures. This system was far better than a lot of others, including the last ones. As we say in french "La plus belle fille ne peut donner que ce qu'elle a" (The most beautiful girl cannot give that what she has) and it is ridiculous to transfer in HD amateur films with a low definition.
I made visit the Fumeo Città, in Milano. It was a big workshop, not a factory. All the spare parts were orderly in wooden boxes all around. It was most intersting and people were very kind.

Nice picture Patrick, thanks for sharing your story. I remember the name Ikegami does that give away my age:) They had a high end and high priced video processor as well back in the day.
