This devices uses a 24 faceted glas-prism instead of a shutter. This "NF"-technology allowed a flicker-free transfer to video without changing the film's original speed.

"Blaupunkt" distributed this device in Germany hence some of these devices also feature a "Blaupunkt"-label. (The device on eBay Canada in 03/2008 did have a "Hope"-logo instead of the "Blaupunkt"-logo. Hence it looks like "Hope" was (one of) the Canadian distributor(s).)
