Abstract

The principle of this TV camera is to divide an image into vertical separate lines. Each image line is then passed through a prism to spread the light according to its spectral content. The prepared image is then placed on the photosensitive target of a TV camera tube. Sweeps, power and video preamplifier are much the same as the conventional black and white television camera. The decommutator then samples the video at the proper times to direct the video signals into amplifiers representing colors.
