*Links:

The home page of the foundry Website has a photo of the mobile carillon set up in the Passau town square; this links to a page offering five videos from a concert on that instrument.  (The videos appear to be horizontally compressed.)  The Documentation video opens with a brief glimpse of the Perner automatic carillon in the Old Town Hall of Passau, and continues with narration about the carillon alternating with an interview with Rudolph Perner (in German).  But there is no textual description. 

The WCF page for this carillon has a photo and partial description.
