Broadcast cameras often enjoy a second life with educational bodies.

The Angenieux zoom lens with servos is by EPO (Evershed Power Optics). The box on the camera top contained the power supply and servo amplifiers. (it should be fixed to the side of the pan & tilt head but the bracket for is is usually missing.

The next generation of servo zooms had the amplifiers in the lens housing and the power was supplied by the camera.
