This camera was used at KWCH 12 Eyewitness News, a CBS affiliate, in
Wicthata Kansas. See camera and the stations history HERE.
And... when it was new looked like this!
We need the lens, connector and control box!

Note this is not our camera though seems the electronics
are all in a missing box. How many cameras were in the '2000
series' I wonder?
The latter digitizes the signals from the three Cohu
series 2000 monochrome video cameras, used to measure the length
of the baguette. A fourth camera is ...

Kin Tel Division of Cohu Electronics
Inc. showed its 2000 series self -
contained miniaturized portable TV
camera which is solid- state, and contains
plug -in units. It sells for $3,000
without lens. The camera control (No.
2,000 -100) furnishes power and control
signals and is directly coupled to the
camera itself creating a single -unit, self -
contained camera. Both the camera and
the control unit are 3 inches in diameter.
Also shown by Kin Tel was the
3100 series high resolution self -contained
camera, containing modular circuitry
for all camera and control functions.
Optional video bandwidths (10
mc to 20 mc) and a selection of scanning
patterns (525 lines to 945 lines)
permit a choice of resolution combinations
for any use. 5
