Even Mood Music Today's traveling man can carry along a kit the size of a dispatch case and set up equipment in a strange office and wdw his prospect with sight and sound — even mood music. The satcsman does more than just operate a machine. For one I thing, he must be there in per! son to get the signature on the order blank. But the equipment does help get the sales pitch across. And some think it does more than mere sales talk can. The devices take many forms. There arc closed circuit TV for big projects, industrial movies, tape recorders, sound effect records, magnetic recording tape, slide projectors, color prints and iransparencics, animated films. One New York-based corporation is said to have fit) different audiovisual devices it can turn to for special tasks. Commercial and industrial purchases of audiovisual equipment are estimated at 200 million dollars last year. They are expected to go higher this year, according to exhibitors at the industrial film and audiovisual exhibition now in full swing here. Schools and colleges bought 27 million dollars worth last year. Purchases by government agencies, religious, social welfare, civic, medical and health groups brought the total to an estimated 250 million. Fast-Growing One of the fastest growing selling aids is closed circuit TV. It . also has been making great strides in the nation's schools. Some big corporations arc reported to he spending $100,000 or mote a year on various audiovisual equipment. When they go in lor industrial movies the cost can run to many times that, j These nonthealrical movies are reported to be one of the fastest glowing segments of the industry. Communication itself Is twofold Management finds it increasingly necessary to keep in touch 'with, and instruct, its sales forces, its workers, its junior executives, its stockholders Also it finds a new need to present its case to the communities in which it has plants or sales outlets.
