The CCD camera in introduced, developed at UCL and designed to support the RCA and British GEC devices and any others likely to become available. It is functionally self-contained and, having a very simple parallel interface, it may be implanted within any host computer system with no modification and little difficulty. This article describes the system as implemented for common use on the SAAO Elizabeth 1-m telescope. Results of both the laboratory tests and the data obtained during the commissioning runs are also presented.
