Philips LDK514 PIU for use with the LDK5 & LDK14

This is the PIU or portable interface unit to adapt an LDK14 camera to connect to the LDK5 base station. It used many of the modules from the LDK5 camera, some with modifications.

The main connectors are Triax in from the LDK5 base station and a 19 pin out to the LDK14. The others are microphone circuits, talkback, video output, data connections.

This particular LDK514 is ex BBC Outside Broadcasts and has had a hard life. Some units were toughened up by moving the main connections to the top with a clamping arrangement for the cables.
