This reminds me of industrial computing. While a complete guess, this may be an industrial computer inside the camera, with the control circuits outside in the control box. 

So, the question is... Is that 1980s news camera a computer inside? One thing is for sure, IBM personal computers are not the only design that Intel microprocessors found their way into.
