Charge-Coupled Device (CCD) Cricket 'Stump' camera, produced by Fearnley Cricket Sales Ltd, 1993.

Wooden cricket stumps and bails with two miniature CCD cameras built into central stump, which is sectioned to show cameras and electronics. Each stump is decorated with plastic sticker 'Texaco - Duncan Fearnley, Worcs, England'.

Two build-in miniature cameras, one with a wide angle shot and the other offering a narrower viewpoint, allowed viewers to experience the batsman’s view of the match. The International Cricket Council (ICC) allows for stump cameras, on the proviso that only the central stump can have cameras inside it, so that the wicket as a whole remains the correct width.

By 1988 the development of the CCD (Charge-coupled device) sensor chip had begun to revolutionise camera design. Although at first very expensive they rapidly become the standard. Cameras with CCD chips were very robust, small and had low power consumption.
