INTERCINE model 41SR Horizontal Editing Machine

This machine has a four-plate combination, a screen and a speaker (which is missing from this specific exhibit). The film is loaded from the left to the right. The upper plate is for the image, the lower one for the sound. The horizontal editing systems (Steenbeck, Intercine, Prevost, KEM) gradually replaced the upright-moviola since they were more comfortable when working many hours; they caused less damage to the film thanks to their especially complex “curl” feed, while they could also be used for checking cuts. They were first designed for the more delicate 16mm, and gradually, due to their convenience, they consolidated their position as the modern standard for contemporary editing, until the arrival of the famous non-linear system offered on various computers. Even today, however, there are cinema people who prefer the rhythm and the hands-on creative editing process that these ‘environments’ offer. At the same time, they provided exceptional quality and precision for editing sound, although, for those brought up in the American system, the same doesn’t apply for the image: see corresponding description of the UPRIGHT- MOVIOLA. This model is from the ΄70s.
