Museum of the Broadcast Television Camera

The control system of the PCP90.


This camera and it's radio based digital control systems was a significant development in the history of television cameras. It led on to the Philips/Norelco PC-100 Triax camera from which the very successful Philips LDK5 camera is descended from. The principles of the data control systems and sending the complete coded picture, on various subcarriers, in these cameras led to similar control systems on most of the worlds Triax cabled cameras.
