The QX1020G is a green sensitive Plumbicon television camera tube.
The lead oxide target camera tube was a Philips invention and was used in broadcast television. It lacked the high edge definition of the Image Orthicon tubes but had the advantage of a high signal to noise ratio.
The Plumbicon camera tube has also been extensively used in medical imaging technology. When television changed to solid state cameras the medical imaging use remained.
