The beams then were combined by dichroic mirrors and scanned mechanically. Horizontal scanning was provided by a 25-sided mirror, rotating at such a high speed (81,000 rpm) as to require aerostatic bearings. This speed was required to scan at 1125 lines, 30 frames/s, with 25 mirror facets. The deflected beam was passed through relay lenses to another mirror mounted on a galvanometer movement, which introduced the vertical scanning. The scanned beam then passed through relay lenses to a second mirror-polygon of 48 sides, rotating at 30 rpm, in accurate synchronism with the continuous movement of the 70 mm film.
