EMI 1936 Emitron Television Camera

EMI 1936 Emitron Television Camera Side view.

There is a good description of the "Marconi-EMI television equipment at the Alexandra Palace" in the journal of the Television Society, June 1936 page 169. this states that there were 6 Emitron cameras available, presumably 2 in each studio and 2 as part of the telecine machines. In 1937 and 1938 when the OB units, MCR1 & MCR2, were made the number would have increased to 12, 6 plus 3 in each OB unit.
