RMS Titanic Radio Room

We all know on April 15 1912 in the early morning hours the Titanic hit an iceberg and sank. This is a picture of the Titanic radio room, it has been colorized but other then that it is a real picture.

Can you identify ANY of the radio equipment ?, not looking for brand names but what its function was would be interesting I think.

If you have some ideas just click on the contact button up top and I will share your ideas here as they come in.

FT4

FT4 is an experimental digital mode designed specifically for radio contesting. Like FT8, it uses fixed-length transmissions, structured messages with formats optimized for minimal QSOs, and strong forward error correction. T/R sequences are 6 seconds long, so FT4 is 2.5 × faster than FT8 and about the same speed as RTTY for radio contesting.
