Museum of the Broadcast Television Camera

The EMI 2005 camera was first shown at the International Broadcasting Convention 1970. It uses 3 x 30mm. lead oxide tubes and it has an electrical design closely based on the EMI 2001/C which was an adaptation of the successful EMI 2001 camera. The 2005 incorporates tube bias lighting, with standard or HOP tubes. The components and PCBs are similar in shape and design to the 2001 camera family.

"The camera produces pictures of very good quality and the colorimetry is similar to the EMI 2001, although possibly slightly inferior in the reproduction of facial tones. It is suggested that an improvement in this area could be achieved by optimising the matrix coefficients for a 3 tube camera and possibly by using a red sensitive tube. The camera is capable of very good registration and with the use of the type 2119 auto centering unit should enable constant accurate registration". From a report dated April 1971
