I was lucky to find the following equipment made by Carl Zeiss Jena for their 3" Orthikon Fernsehkamera FUK (TV camera)
with 24 x 32mm format, made from 1963 onwards (announced Jan 1963):

- Carl Zeiss Jena VISIONAR 1.9/141mm with factory built in iris for TV camera (only 19 ever made)
- Carl Zeiss Jena Pruefprojektor with built in 1:1 macro lens for the calibration of TV camera lenses

I presume thet the "kurzel" has a meaning (fernseh ?unterricht? kamera)? so rather than bow to the unhealthy American preoccupation with procreation and bodily functions and using that for swear words, (rather than sound expresssions of anger like various demon names as used in Scandinavia), I propose that one should stick with the original nomenclature while avoiding demonic swear words as abbreviations It would by the way be interesting to have more info on how the device was used.

Will do once I find it... Wink

But the principle of reverse lens projection may be taken from this source here: https://www.photonics.com/Article.aspx?AID=64357
It is a very common tool and practise for professional film production equipment testing
