A sectional view of an image orthicon is shown in the below figure. It has three main sections: image section, scanning section and electron. Historical information about the start of the first television camera tubes. The huge 4,5″ EEV Image Orthicon with in front a 2/3″ Vidicon tube. This EEV. This chapter discusses television X-ray image intensifiers that use an image orthicon camera tube of the type used in many television studios. The electrostatic.

The size of the striking ray was tiny compared to the size of the target, allowing horizontal scan lines per image in the NTSC format, or lines in PAL. However, there are serious problems as well, because the electron beam “spreads” and accelerates in a direction parallel to the target when it scans the image’s borders and corners, so that it produces secondary electrons and one gets an image that is well focused in the center but blurry in the borders. Compared to Saticons, Plumbicons have much higher resistance to burn-in, and comet and trailing artifacts from bright lights in the shot.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For instance, a 6. Archived from the original on June 22, The image orthicon has excellent detail rendering qualities. Retrieved from ” https: The device was first described in a patent application he filed in Hungary in March fube a television system he dubbed “Radioskop”. United Kingdom Intellectual Property Office. Also, video tubes had progressed to a high odthicon of quality and were “standard issue” equipment to networks and production entities.

Trinicon is a registered trademark of Sony. Farnsworth applied for a patent for his Television System that included a device for “the conversion and dissecting of light”. Inwhile employed by the Westinghouse Electric Corporation in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Russian-born American engineer Vladimir Zworykin presented a project for a totally electronic television system to the company’s general manager. Department of Commerce, Patent and Trademark Office. Museum of the Broadcast Television Camera.

In a letter to Nature published in OctoberCampbell-Swinton also announced the results of some “not very successful experiments” he had conducted with G. The image iconoscope is essentially identical to the super-Emitron, but the target is constructed of a thin layer of isolating material placed on top of a conductive base, the mosaic of metallic granules is missing.

Deflection fields bend the lines of force with negligible defocusingand the electrons follow the lines of force. Archived from the original on Flemingand Hans Busch gave a complete mathematical interpretation in Since darker images produce less positive charge on the target, the excess electrons deposited by the splash will be read as a dark region by the scanning electron beam.

An image of the scene to be televised is focused by an optical lens system on to the photo-cathode and causes photo-electrons to be emitted.

Image Orthicon Camera Tubes

New TV Camera Tube. This tube is essentially identical to the super-Emitron, but the target is constructed of a thin layer of isolating material placed on top of a conductive base, the mosaic of metallic granules is missing. The electron gun structure produces a beam of electrons that is accelerated towards the target. However, it tends to flare in bright light, causing a dark halo to be seen around the object; this anomaly is referred to as ” blooming ” in imqge broadcast industry when image orthicon tubes were in operation.

Multiplier Section The return beam, comprising electrons which are not required for neutralising the orthicln on the target, travels back along approximately the same path as the outgoing electron beam and is directed into a five-stage electron multiplier where it is amplified to become the output video signal.

It has an efficient photocathode that transforms the scene light into an electron image; the latter is then accelerated towards a target specially prepared for the emission of secondary electrons. European Patent Office, Patent No. The camera pickup tubes described in this article are also CRTs, but they display no image.


The mysterious dark “orthicon halo” around bright objects in an IO-captured image is based on the fact that the IO relies on the emission of photoelectrons, but very bright illumination can produce more of them locally than the device can successfully deal with. They had attempted to generate an electrical signal by imaye an image onto a selenium-coated metal plate that was simultaneously scanned by a cathode ray beam.

In detail, coils in a deflection yoke extend some distance beyond the neck of the tube, and lie close to the flare of the bulb; they have a truly distinctive appearance. Above the base, at the right of the picture, can be seen the integral electron umage.

University of California Press. This adjustment helps to improve the landing characteristics of the beam.

The result is expressed in inches and is usually though not always rounded to a convenient fraction – hence the approximation.

If the three levels were the same, then that part of the scene was green. Those types of extension tubes can get you closer to a subject than close-up lenses, and way closer than you would want to get in a small photo booth hire with friends in London. Variations on this scheme exist, the principal one being to use two filters with color stripes overlaid such that the colors form vertically oriented lozenge shapes overlaying the target. Electrons inside these long focus coils take helical paths as they travel along the length of the tube.

Therefore, secondary electrons are emitted from the surface of the isolating material when the electron image reaches the target, and the resulting positive charges are stored directly onto the surface of the isolated material.
