Early Television Broadcasting
General Precision Laboratories PA-303 Video Recording Monitor
This unit contains a high resolution flying spot scanner and was used with a 16mm film camera to record television programs in the early 50s. The CRT operates with 25 kv on the anode and has a P11 phosphor. The PA-303 was used with a PA-302 film camera (shown below).
The PA-303 will soon be at the museum, courtesy of a donation from the Museum of Science and Industry in Tampa, Florida.
