Marconi television camera scanning yoke

Marconi television camera scanning yoke

This is a 3 inch Image Orthicon scanning yoke, possibly from a MkIII camera but is similar in size to the type that would have been used in the Marconi I.O. colour cameras.

 

The yokes for the colour cameras were all made from RCA drawings with mu metal screens their full length. The required accuracy and matching between the 3 yokes was much higher than the normal for monochrome cameras.
