Sound motion picture facilities for research in communication
In recent years there has been a growing interest in recording behavioral material by sound motion picture techniques, both for research and for educational purposes. The technical problems of constructing and equipping facilities for this sort of work, and of operating them when they are finished, are considerable. Because of our experience in building such facilities in two quite different settings, we have often been called upon to give advice in planning for this type of recording. It has seemed to us, therefore, that an outline of the requirements and some of the problems of developing such facilities might find use in the behavioral science fields. We shall take up issues of technical consultation, of the design and construction of rooms for the purpose of photographic and audio recording techniques, and finally, playback considerations.
