Although the Bosch KC3 PK9 B1 camera dates from the mid-1960s, it was only acquired by RTP in 1980, when regular color broadcasts began.

In July 1929, Robert Bosch and several partners, including John Baird, founded Fernseh AG in Berlin. With a very modest start, Fernseh only had its great opportunity in 1936, with the recent solidified technology, the Berlin Olympic Games were recorded and broadcast with material from Fernseh AG.

In 1939, all Bosch partners withdrew from the company, changing the name to Fernseh GMBH. World War II interrupted the company's development.

Only in 1952, the Allies gave permission for regular television broadcasts. Fernseh GMBH, based in Darmstadt, has dedicated itself to the development and manufacture of studio and television recording equipment. Later, it changed its name to Bosch / Fernseh.
