Museum of the Broadcast Television Camera


The BC-210 is a two tube camera and is the studio version of the BC-100. It uses the same two tube layout with one Plumbicon for the luminance and a second one with a red-blue rotating filter wheel in front of it. A 262 line delay line was used to reconstruct the the red & blue fields and this was then matrixed with the luminance signal to produce the RGB signal.

The camera measured 20.5 x 13.5 x 8.5 inches and used a special thin camera cable that had a maximum length of 2000ft. The BC-210 cost $50,000 in 1967.
