1934 RCA experimental Iconoscope Television Camera

This poor picture shows the cable side of the camera with two cables, both cables are of the same construction as in the other picture. The center unit is described as a "concentric" cable rather than the later term, coaxial cable. The thinness of the center conductor indicates that it had a high characteristic impedance. One cable carried the video signal from the camera and the other carried the horizontal scanning waveform to the camera. The other signals and voltages were distributed amongst the single wires.
