It is a small, lightweight 0 single package camera requiring only the application of a nominal 12 volt battery to generate fully encoded color signals. Shown around the cameraman's waist is a battery belt which is considered the normal source of power for the portable, man-carried, application. Since September, the product design has been completed and the camera is now in its first production cycle.
