The typical production by EDUTRONIC is a documentary. This often on a technology theme, either at a general interest level or more detailed for a specialist audience. The technology covered is mainly in the area of Digital Electronics, Embedded Systems and Robotics which is the other area of EDUTRONIC interest. The social and historical context is often a feature of these productions as it important, in an educational sense, not to see technology as an end in itself.

Film edit and assembly The image on the left shows the 16mm film editing process. The film is wound through the Murray viewer and footage / frame counter so that images can be matched for content and length with the video edit. This matching means that the soundtrack from the video edit can also be the soundtrack for the film. The image on the right is of the edited print being checked on a silent BOLEX 816 PROJECTOR. 816 Bolex projector viewing film
