Marconi Image Orthicon colour television camera

Marconi Image Orthicon colour television camera

This is the first generation of the Marconi "coffin" colour cameras using three 3 inch Image Orthicon tubes. The design of the camera is a copy, under licence, of the RCA TK41 camera. The CCU control equipment is different from the RCA equipment and more like the Marconi Mk III monochrome camera equipment.

Of note are the 3 camera cables!
