4 pin XLR cable

Does anybody know about these 4 pin power cables for older cameras? One pin is for 12v, the other for ground, what are the
other two for?

Wow - great page, thank you. I guess I was trying to find a way
to get power from the ac adapter to the camera just to test it. I won't be able to get a hold of a cable for week or so and wanted to test this camera and was trying to figure out a way to temporarily wire it so it can be tested. Thanks again

Not at all, I bought it for a prop because of it's size but thought I would see if it worked for fun. It's a JVC BY-10U.
