Pye started production of television cameras soon after the end of WW2. They chose to use the Photicon tube, a member of the Iconoscope family of tubes that had received considerable development during the war and were further developed by Pye and Cathodeon to the variant known as the PES Photicon (Pesticon). The Mk3 camera was the first Pye to use an Image Orthicon tube and this continued through to the Mk7 camera. The Mk 8 was offered with either a Vidicon or Plumbicon tube, and the short lived colour telecine camera which marked the end of the Pye camera developmental line had 4 Plumbicons.
Later Pye TVT Pye model numbers start with "84" this was sometimes omitted.
