There's not a lot here to go on--but the printing unit looks to me 
like an IBM 402/403 accounting machine and the tape drives like 727s. 
A bunch of 024/026 keypunches, a 533 read/punch unit and what looks 
to be a 705 console in the far background.  

The blinkenlights display, on the other hand, really looks as if it 
was reused for several TV series...

Cheers,
Chuck
