In 1975 Philips and Amperex introduced a 2/3-in Plumbicon tube that was specially designed to fulfil the requirements which then applied to portable ENG cameras. The concept of this tube was largely based on that of the existing 1 1/4-in and 1-in Plumbicon tubes which had already proved their worth in studio cameras throughout the entire world for many years. The technology which formed the basis for the diode tubes introduced a few years later was in fact not very different from that employed in the types already in common use.
