Prototype development for the cameras of the medium-sized telescope
(MST), which will be built in large quantities, will be undertaken.
Given the large total number of channels required for the cameras of the
MSTs (~100 000), special emphasis will be placed on the development of a
cost effective, robust and reliable solution, which will be implemented
and demonstrated within this WP. The prototype development includes the
integration of all components of a camera, up to the level of data
transmission to a central data acquisition system. A full-size camera
prototype will be built, tested and verified, and implementation plans
and a detailed cost evaluation will be produced.
