Museum of the Broadcast Television Camera

Notes:- Index page for the EMI 2001 camera channel

LWT, London Weekend Television placed an order for 22 EMI 2001 cameras, for both studio and OB work, in 1968. ref; PTW.
Andrew Vale reports that the EMI 2001 was used extensively by the studios of LWT and was used on "Upstairs Downstairs" " On the Buses", "Please Sir" etc.

EMI and IVC (International Video Corp.) announced a Joint agreement to market the EMI 2001 camera in the USA. Both 3 and 4 tube versions to be offered. ref; PTV March 1969.
The EMI 2001 was also sold by Thomson-CSF as the TH.T 2001

ACT and the EMI 2001/1. As supplied by EMI the 2001 and the later 2001/1 did not have any form of ACT (anti comet tail) or HOP (highlight overload protection). This is why its performance was poor, in this respect, when compared with the next generation of cameras supplied in the 1970s. None of the first generation of true broadcast cameras in the middle to late 1960’s had ACT, so the EMI 2001 was not unusual.
