The image orthicon (10) was developed during World War II to solve some of the problems of its predecessors in the camera-tube family. These included. Image orthicon definition, a camera tube, more sensitive than the orthicon, in which an electron image generated by a photocathode is focused on one side of a. 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.

University of California Press. This adjustment helps to improve the landing characteristics of the beam. Views Read Edit View history.

Archived from the original on October 31, Although the video camera tube is now technologically obsolete, the size of solid state sensors is still expressed as the equivalent size of a camera tube. This technology was a precursor acmera modern microbolometer technology.

The image side of target plate has coating of cesium that emit secondary electron. Its surface consists of cadmium selenide trioxide CdSeO 3.

Video camera tube

It has three main sections: Its first image was transmitted in late summer of[55] and a patent was issued in This configurations allows the use of a straight camera tube, because the scene to be transmitted, the charge storage plate, and the electron gun can be aligned one after the other.

Radio and Communication Engineering, volume 97, issue The secondary emission at the target produces a pattern of positive charges corresponding point by point with the light distribution of the original scene and the thinness of the target allows this charge pattern to be reproduced immediately on its reverse side, i. The side of this film facing cathode is coated with a very thin layer of photoconductive material amorphous selenium. An electron beam periodically sweeps across the plate, effectively scanning the stored image and discharging each capacitor in turn such that the electrical output from each capacitor is proportional to the average intensity of the light striking it between each discharge event.


Light biasing was a method whereby the photosensitive target was illuminated from a light source just enough that no appreciable output was obtained, but such that a slight increase in light level from the scene was enough to provide discernible output.

For this purpose a new term was coined and it is known as the optical format. Saticon is a registered trademark of Hitachi fromalso produced by Thomson and Sony. One might say that this ortihcon of deflection starts to create S-bends in the lines of force, but doesn’t become anywhere near to that extreme.

Assuming that they start from a point, the electrons will focus to a point again at a distance determined by the strength of the field. In a magnetically focused camera tube there are electrostatically focused vidiconsthe vertical deflection coils are above and below the tube, instead of being on both sides of it.

These filters provide highly precise primary colour images which are converted into video signals by image-orthicon or vidicon camera tubes.

A field-sequential system developed by Peter Goldmark for CBS was demonstrated to the press on September 4,[] and was first shown to the general public on January 12, White portions of the object will project more light on the film and make it more conductive. The later Vidicon tube and its descendants see below do not exhibit this effect, and so could not be used for broadcast purposes until special “detail correction” circuitry could be developed.

Draw and explain image orthicon camera tube in detail with advantages and disadvantages.

September 5,p. Block i,age of image orthicon and associated control units. 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.

The ratio of signal current to illumination os gamma and it varies from unity at low light to 0. Each individual electron from the electron image produces several secondary electrons after reaching the target, so that an amplification effect is produced. An image dissector is a camera tube that creates an “electron image” of a scene from photocathode emissions electrons which pass through a scanning aperture to an anodewhich serves as an electron detector.


Image orthicon

Archived from the original on June 22, In addition to improving the landing characteristics of the beam at the target, the presence of the field correcting mesh reduces the intensity of the white edging typical of pictures produced by earlier versions of the image orthicon. In effect, the electrons travel along the lines of force, although helically, in detail.

This comment has been removed by a blog administrator. A diachroic mirror passes one wavelength and rejects other wavelengths colours of light. Resolution of the order of lines can be achieved under practical conditions. 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.

An electron multiplier is located within the pick-up tube for amplifying the electron density variation in the returning beam. New TV Camera Tube. Although the optical format size bears no relationship to any physical parameter of the sensor, its use means that a lens that would have been used with say a four thirds inch camera tube will give roughly the same angle of view when used with a solid-state sensor with an optical format of four thirds of an inch.

The target is nearly at ground potential with a small positive charge, thus when the electrons reach the target at low speed they are absorbed without ejecting more electrons.

Once it exits the electron gun, its inertia hube the beam move away from the dynode towards the back side of the target.

The fluctuating voltage coupled out to a video amplifier can be used to reproduce the scene being imaged.
