Hi,

I found on the internet a 16mm projector that says: Royal projector a/b 16mm from 1950's

It looks like a silent projector and I wonder if a/b means that it's made to visualise prints? Does anyone knows what it would be? Many thanks!!!

A search turned up an auction in swedish, for what looks to be a small 16mm unit. comparable to the Calvin Movie Mite.

I am not sure what you mean as far as to "visualise prints" All projectors show the visuals on the print on some sort of screen so you can see them. if you are associating with "a and B rolls" those are generaly just made of the negative and so you would not be projecting them directly.

"A/B" maight refer to the projector's ability to quickly change between two reels. That would mean the projector has two lenses, lamp housings, and movements... so maybe I'm wrong. Just a guess.
