Photoelectronic devices are similar to photographic cameras in the sense that a device consists of a means for collecting and focusing electromagnetic radiation, and converting the electromagnetic radiation by means of a sensing surface into a form that can be stored and/or observed. The television camera and the image-intensifier system merely replace the photographic film in the film plane with the sensing surface of the television tube and of the image-intensifying tube.
