Friday babelfishing

I have started to study the sparse documents we have related to the Soyuz consoles over the past few days, in order to build all that we need to implement the realistic panels (for now we only have some test ones). One of the interesting instruments is the Combined Electronic Indicator, which was used for video and data (dunno yet if it could be use to display video and data at the same time ...). I found a schematics in one if the ASTP document which indicate the controls (knobs) associated with the CRT screen, but the document isn't of great quality and ... I can't read Russian!

Any tips will be very welcome ... in the meantime I'll head for Babelfish ...

My Russian speaking workmates have had a look. The left bottom control is brightness, the right bottom is contrast. The top control caused more difficulty. It is something video. The something is an abbreviation. Their best guess is that it is an abbreviation for commerce, but "commerce video" makes no sense in either Russian or English. Is it actually a control or is a socket where you can plug something in? Anyway, this is the best they could come up with, hope it helps.
