Steve Ostler's NBTV Convention 2005, colour studio
Directly behind this door we see Steve Ostler's colour NBTV camera. This large
Nipkow disc camera works in the 30 line Baird standard. To make things not too
complicated only two colours are sensed, reddisch and blue.
This is the back side of the camera.
Here we see the front side of the camera. Two halogen lamps iluminate the scene
before the taking lens. We see here Jacky Asseman, wife of Denis, who is
televised at this moment. Brightly coloured capture cards are laying ready for
the case no life subjects are available.
This is Steve Ostler's large colour monitor. Behind the Nipkow disc are three
clusters of LED's, red, green and blue. The three steering signals are matrixed
from the two colour signals from the camera. As you can see the monitor and the
camera both use left handed optics.
This Mickey Mouse is commonly used to adjust the colour rendering of the two
colour TV camera.
