UTC Z-2961 input transformer

Any good use for these? These were given to me by a good friend, but I cannot find any data on this model.
It came out of a RCA Video reel to reel machine that was parted out at a local TV station. The machine was from the sixties and all solid state.
Thank you in advance for any information you may have.

Another from RCA video machine

Here is another, but much larger. I measured the DCR on all legs, very low resistance here.
Unsure what this one was used for in the video machine, any ideas?...
Thank you

And Last one Unknown transformer

Here is the las one. Unknown, from the same RCA video machine.
I hope that I can find a use for these, (Did I say they were FREE!!:D)
Just hoping someone may have an idea or two.
I'm almost sure the smaller UTC's in the first post can be arranged for input, but I have never had the money to do transformer input yet.
This may be a first...
Once again thank you for any input you may have (good or bad).
