The RHA's were all transistor (no IC's). The model before that was the CYA which was hybrid and used a 17" tube. Lots of these monitors were tossed out simply because TV stations were in a rush to convert to all transistor equipment and get out from the ever increasing price of vacuum tubes. Conrac CYA attached.
Thank you for the picture!
I was (re-)watching an old movie yesterday: Colossus, The Forbin Project (1970). It's about some run-away artificial intelligence that is tied into the nuclear arsenal of the USA and the USSR and decides that humans would be better off under its complete control. Spooky.
The video terminals in the control room definitely looked like Conracs, especially the four knobs on the front panels made them stand out. They very much resemble the CYA model you posted.
