After I had settled back into a daily routine my business life was filled with drawing and designing a new type of film processor for a developing process for news gathering Kodak had introduced. Some time was also spent on keeping the drawing and design office functioning at top performance.
By now I had gained enough experience so it was not a too difficult task. It is also gratifying to see when something you design on the drawing board comes together on the workshop floor.
RVNP Processor for Townsville TV
The business of supplying processors to local TV Stations and Photofinishing Laboratories would sooner or later come to an end and it was decided to spread our wings and try to enter the international motion picture market.
The most suitable event was the Photokina exhibition which was the largest in the world for the motion picture and photo industries, held every two years in Cologne- Germany. The original plan was to fly over in 1978 and show “my baby” (see above) but then it was wisely decided that we should enter the international scene with a bang. We built a larger processor (very large for that time) to impress the film industry and potential customers in 1980. This decision would change my life forever.
