Equipment for hire


Equipment produced by "RCA".

Defunct giant US electronics manufacturer. Liked to think that it invented everything tv & radio.

Click to see large picture RCA MI 26205B
Period:   from the beginning of 1950's to the beginning of 1970's
Type:   Pan & Tilt Heads
Quantity:   1 specimens available

Unique in the UK, a complete RCA friction pan & tilt head with tripod (type TD 11A) and dolly (type TD 15A). This friction head type was used extensively in American monochrome tv stations and also on 'remotes' with the tripod and dolly combination which folded for easy transportation. 'Low cost' tv studios also used the tripod and dolly as an alternative to a pedestal. Manufactured by Houston-Fearless, the RCA pan head & dolly was used for over twenty five years (and may indeed still be running around somewhere). Larger picture shows the Dolly/Skid folded.

1850A Iconoscope camera tube. This tube is from the late 1940's but the design is late 1930's. The difference in the period of manufacture is denoted by the internal white flashing. The tube is not gassed and the getter is still good.

Click to see large picture RCA 3 Inch Image Orthicon
Period:   from the end of 1940's to the beginning of 1970's
Type:   Imaging Tubes
Quantity:   10 specimens available

The 3 inch Image Orthicon tube was produced first in the USA by RCA initially for WW2 military use and then in 1945 for broadcast use. Termed a 'low velocity' photo emmisive tube, the 3 inch IO revolutionised tv camera design and tv production because of its high sensitivity. This enabled outside broadcasting to be undertaken in very poor light and also implimented the use of camera lens turrets and electronic viewfinders. One 'trick' of the 3 inch IO was that it could photograph the human face by the light of a single small candle. The black 'halo' reproduced around the candle flame was another matter.

Click to see large picture RCA TK11A
Period:   from the beginning of 1950's to the end of 1960's
Type:   Broadcast TV cameras
Quantity:   1 specimens available

The RCA TK11A was a 3"inch b/w image orthicon camera used mainly in the USA and Asia. Some European use. A few were used in the UK during the 1950s by the independent television company Associated-Rediffusion at their Wembley and Kingsway studios. The camera generally used Kodak Ektar lenses. This camera is non functioning but implants possible. We believe that this is the only example of this camera type in Europe.
