The D was to mark the end of the vast series of sound projectors and at the time I remember feeling rather sad to see this particular range come to an end as it was really popular around the cine circuit for film makers and home projectionists, not least because the D had a new colour scheme, improved design and was pretty sexy to look at. It was the heaviest of the range weighing in at 8. This machine built still further on Eumig pedigree of solid construction and reliability and it did not disappoint the user. It topped the range even offering public address facility, high low lamp switching and the all important manual record level control for perfect recording of sound.

This was the first movie camera in the world with semi-automatic tracking exposure control. In it introduced the movie cameras "Eumig C 3" propelled by a spring mechanism , and the "Eumig C 4," which was the first amateur film camera in the world driven by electric motor.

Overall, about , units of the Cseries were built. Its factory on the Buchengasse in Vienna was destroyed in by bombing, but machinery had been moved the previous year to a branch in Micheldorf. Two years later, its successor, the "Eumigetta 2," debuted, though these cameras were eventually abandoned. It built a new factory complex, designed by Oswald Haerdtl, on a site in Wiener Neudorf.

Then, on the initiative of junior engineer Karl Vockenhuber, and after 6-week trials and a subsequent survey of the workforce, EUMIG introduced the first hour work week in Austria. Finally, the C amera 16 was introduced for mm film. In , in recognition of its accomplishments, the company received the Staatliche Auszeichnung "National Award" and was allowed to use the Bundeswappen , or the federal arms of Austria, in commercial transactions.

In Eumig tried again in the radio hifi industry and introduced the 3-head stereo cassette deck "Metropolitan CCD", with a tuner and amplifier as a "Metropolitan CC" in a console design, with fully electronic sensor control and opto-electronic synchronization control. But later that year, the LVR project was discontinued, as the market opportunities were considered to be too few. It used a microprocessor, the Mostek MK It had a more advanced drive than the Metropolitan, with a front loading design in which the winding speed was electronically governed at Rewind short rewind time , and was able to tape media positions accurately with an electronic counter, with an extremely short acceleration time.

The built-interface could control up to sixteen decks from a computer. Also that year, Eumig launched the waterproof film camera "Nautica" for Super 8, usable up to 40 meters below the surface.
