(CBS Mechanical Field-Sequential Color)
Courtesy Early Technology Library, Scotland

A medical supply company called "Wilmot-Castle" of Rochester, New York, (later became part of Sybron Corp.) marketed this CBS color system for hospital use, similar to the Zenith set in design concept, but housed in a rugged metal case.  The unit was actually manufactured by Remington Rand, and licensed through CBS.  Received limited commercial production and use.  Includes scans of several pages of the operator's manual.  (Thanks to John Folsom for providing company info).
