of the Art Stereo Optical Recording Electronics
Stereo Optical Recording Electronics are the worldwide industry
standard for recording motion picture optical sound tracks. The
optical sound tracks for every major motion picture in the world
are recorded on film with the Nuoptix electronics.

Nuoptix has taken the
problems historically associated with optical sound tracks and solved
them with an integrated system.
The Nuoptix SORS/D controls
each of the four ribbons of the Nuoptix Stereo Light Valve individually.
The Nuoptix recording package uses a Stereo photocell to monitor
the exact amount of light transmitted by the Stereo Light Valve
so that the SORS/D dual digital read-outs can display the actual
dimensions of the tracks and provide audio monitoring of the recording
The digital monitoring
provides precise feedback for adjusting track spacing and bias line
size accurately and easily, which greatly improves the sound quality.
The ribbon displacement controls allow the system to make monaural
or stereo recordings, at the flip of a switch, without compromising
The Nuoptix SORS/D utilizes
a digital anticipatory noise reduction. This feature, the hallmark
of all Nuoptix systems, eliminated the transient distortion and
the muted sound of older optical recording systems.
Each Nuoptix system includes
an Auxiliary Optical System (AOS) which completes the electronic
package. The AOS features a digital metered Constant Current Recording
Lamp Power Supply and digital Test Signal Generator with true Pink
Nuoptix also offers a
complete conversion of a monaural 1231 type Light Valve recorders
to Stereo. We convert your old monaural valve to a Nuoptix Stereo
valve and realign the optical system. The conversion also includes
stereo photocells, photocell preamplifier, and a two-axis quartz
halogen lamp assembly. With each system, our engineers align and
calibrate the equipment then provide personal training for you and
your engineers at our facility.
