From what I remember when I did platter projection, it looks like this one may been fed by a 'cake stand'. The angles of the rollers suggests the turns a kind of platter-feed might need to get in/out of the machine without trouble.

The only other thing I could possibly imagine would be some sort of endless-loop application for continuous screening at, say, a museum, but I will go with a platter as my first choice.
Anyone else?

Claus.

You're right, this is an endless loop projector on the NT chassis. It was one made by Eiki rather than a modification by one of several other companies.

There were several projectors like this from the 1940's on which were usually rear screen units for either store display, salesman use or as you cited in a museum.

I think the endless loop unit was also available as an accessory to run on a normal projector so you could also go back to reel to reel projection. The footage length of the loop was something around 600 feet or less.

John,

Thanks for clarifying; I know some of the endless loops were used by abstract artists in museum shows including live visuals, so that makes perfect sense.

Claus.
