Default Re: Museums

The virtual Museum of the Broadcast Television Camera

The objective of this site is to record and document the history, technology and development of broadcast television cameras. The images and data within are drawn from the cameras and photographs in my collection and the collections of other supporters of the museum. It is hoped that this site will become a valuable reference source.

The museum is a long way from finished and I will be adding new cameras and information as and when I can, I intend to work on European and American television cameras first. There are many pages that are incomplete with gaps and omissions.

Like most museums, were their collections are mostly "in storage", my collection which supports the museum is entirely "in storage" and the museum is a virtual one that exists in cyber space. However this does have advantages:-

It means that I am, or will be, able to display everything.

Admission is Free! The Museum is open 24/7

The collection is preserved in good condition for the future

The camera pictured is an EMI 201 broadcast vidicon camera c. 1960

Another shameless plug! Regards Brian
