Early CCD Camera History

I'm looking for information on the very early development of the CCD TV camera.


The first camera that had a performance good enough to be offered as a broadcast camera was the RCA CCD-1 introduced in 1983. This is fairly well documented and it is it's predecessors that I need information for.

The history of CCD Charge coupled devices goes back to 1969 and there is a history synopsis on Wikipedia.

I wish to document the developmental TV cameras. I have made a start on this, see https://www.tvcameramuseum.org/earlyccd/ccdthumb.html with cameras by Bell Labs, Fairchild, RCA and others.

Information, dates, pictures. specifications, documentation etc are what is needed.

I have added quite a lot of new pictures and information see https://www.tvcameramuseum.org/earlyccd/ccdthumb.html There are still a few gaps to fill as the information becomes available.

I need more information/pictures about the work at Bell Labs. I have a number of papers describing the progress in CCD operation and fabrication, but little in the way of part numbers or pictures of cameras that incorporated devices.

Also need a picture of any camera that used the GEC Hirst Research Centre, Wembley, CCD sensor type MA357.
