NBC press release photo for opening of the Brooklyn color TV studio.

Note it was a time exposure and has some "ghost" people.
Also noteworthy - most color cameras are on pneumatic pedestals, but one is on a simple tripod dolly.

If they turned all those lights on at once the actors would probably burst into flames!

The lighting level for TK-41 cameras was nominally 400 foot-candles (4306 lux). The NAB engineering handbook recommended installing cooling capacity for a heat load of 100 watts per square foot of studio space.

[For comparison, sunlight is somewhere around 6700 foot-candles (varies with angle of incidence).]
