No articles with some of the nouns

He does not say 'installent DES projecteurs et DES caméras' as I would have expected. Is what he says an acceptable grammatical alternative?

 Bonjour Tom,

It is an acceptable usage especially in a poetic context or in literature (when listing two things).

Poetry: Adieu veau, vache, cochon, couvée. (de la Fontaine) 

Literature: Enfants et vieillards font souvent cause commune (Sartre)

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée!
