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.
