Moving Pictures and Moving Picture Projectors
Moving pictures are not defined by statute or regulation. By regulation, moving picture projectors are film or video projectors or spotlights that use hazardous radiation-producing light sources without protective shielding to transmit light onto a screen. They do not include enclosed projectors equipped with incandescent lamps for projection illumination (Conn. Agencies Reg. , § 29-109-3b(4)).
