These cameras increased video resolution while lowering patient x-ray dosage at the same time. The Seventies start with great success of the product line and Nical increasingly invests in research and development. Working with a leading Italian company in baggage control a new Film Safe system made its debut. The mid-seventies brings NICAL to expands its activities in the industrial sector with the design and manufacture of the products for broadcast television. TV studio color cameras and monitors, video mixers and telecine were furnished to all the major national and private TV networks.
