kinetograph \ki*ne"to*graph\, n. [Gr. ? movable + -graph.]
   (a) A camera for making chronophotographs. [obsolescent]
   (b) A machine for the projection of chronophotographs upon a
       screen for the purpose of producing the effect of an
       animated picture. [obsolescent]
   (c) A combined animated-picture machine and phonograph in
       which sounds appropriate to the scene are automatically
       uttered by the latter instrument. It has been superseded
       by recording techniques allowing the sounds to be
       recorded directly on the motion-picture film.
