waowww.... What a treasure you found. I'm interested in all kind of cinema techniques, and this cabinet join both of my interests : arcade games and analogic cinema !!

so yes, i think it is 16mm reel with its optical sound track.

If you plan to replace old projection system by a more classic video screen (which I hope won't be your final choice !!) you have several companies who use this kind of stuff :

These are digital scanners that allow to "digitize" 35 or 16mm film reels.

good luck for this project, I'm gonna follow this post very closely

I have to disagree, although I can't be certain, but that looks more like it has magnetic sound than optical  ;D

But that's just MHO

Ok guys... it's time for a nice update!  Here's the story... 8)

To participate to the last Eurocade exhibition ( September 2014), I went to the Sound and Vision (‘Nederlands Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid’) and during a visit of the several departments/offices in this building with Pieter aka Gyruss (employee at this place)... I've discovered what is the purpose of this organization, see  :arrow:

The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision (‘Nederlands Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid’) is a cultural-historical organization of national interest. It collects, preserves and opens the audiovisual heritage for as many users as possible: media professionals, education, science and the general public. In addition, the institute develops and disseminates knowledge in the area of audiovisual archiving, digitization and media history.

...digitization...? ... wait a minute... I have something really special to preserve.... yes ... the wheel from the game of course! So I talked to Pieter about this stuff to preserve and he immediately agreed to help on this! How cool is that!!!  :-*  :)

So let's prepare the stuff for save.

I got with the game two different wheels, unused, still in there boxes. Note that I also have a third wheel, but that one is loaded/stuck inside the cabinet. I won't touch this third wheel for now, so let's take care of these two NOS wheels  :arrow:



...let's pack the stuff...



...and send it to Pieter @ the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision...



...arriving at destination :



...where Pieter followed all the technical steps to preserve this rare footage!  :arrow:









Done! ...and note that the wheels are no more in their cardboard boxes... They are now into something more appropriate :



...and...few weeks l8ter... I've received the precious...



THE package with all the original stuff, but also...an hard drive... that contains ultra high resolution captures of the two wheels!  :-* :-* :-*



I'm preparing the videos... stay tuned!  :)

That's awesome, nice to see it properly preserved. I do feel it's us collectors that have a duty to ensure this stuff is properly archived and documented for the future, so it's great to see things like this happen :)

Awesome work !!!!!

I was surprised that it's all French cars with French license plates.....thought it would be Japanese cars in Japan ;)

Also funny that sometimes there are two people in the red car and sometimes one....

And cool to see how the "drive aiming" worked with the black/white section. Pretty obvious how this worked :)

Now........there are still some Nintendo cabs with movie reels around that need to be saved for the future.......Andreas ??? :D

Fun quiz for old people here....name all the Renault models in this footage.

I'll give it a try.

The red car you chase is a Renault 9.

The first green car from the right is a Renault 12 break (station wagon)

The white and beige/brown cars are Renault 14

There is a white Renault 4 right after the turn around the motor police officer.

And then there's a white care with boot that doesn't look like a Renault but maybe a Peugeot just before the red car enters the village....


Now the interesting stuff.......the model 9 according to Wikipedia was only introduced in ..........1981....so....if that really IS a Renault 9 then that film was shot quite a bit after the game was made :) (and maybe Renault sponsored it ? ;))
