Looking for the font used in the first Cambridge Audio logo and on some of their products faceplates.

Hello everyone,

I am looking for the name of the typeface used by Cambridge Audio on their oldest logo and on some of their products.


It can be seen on their P40 Amplifier and CD One CD player for instance (images below). It can also be seen on their Wikipedia page in a scan of a brochure. I also linked an image found on a vector assets website (seems to be traced from a scan)

I couldn't gather much information about it, although the company's first product featuring this font came out in 1969, and the company was founded one year before.
I'm mainly interested in the name of the typeface (and it's style or category if it has one, I don't know much about type). If you also know other similar looking typefaces that you enjoy, feel free to recommend!

Hello again

I just stumbled on a very similar typeface (or the same) by accident when looking at Tangerine Dream album covers.
This time it was tagged on the "fonts in use" website, and identified as "Camellia"

I'm pretty happy with this conclusion, but if anyone wants to approve this identification, I'd be more than happy

Happy to confirm. Also known as CamelD in the Bitstream version

Scratch that. It's only when looking at the files in the Mac OS finder. Once I put them into my font manager it becomes CamelliaD, sorry for any confusion.
