There are different sorts of kinescope cameras. Do you have an
Auricon with TVT (144-degree) shutter or a Palmer or something else?

The nice thing about LCDs is that they don't refresh like CRTs, so
generally can be filmed without need for special shutter angles.
However, sometimes there are problems with the flicker of the
backlight tubes, but that is less common.

What this means is that your kinescope camera isn't really needed for
this. Shoot a test with it or a regular camera.

Good luck!
