Probably CRT projection tubes in that lower tilted flap shining on the screen.

Old crt tv's had very wide scan lines. The projector would have had to projected a very small picture, and the scan lines would be magnified too much.

Possibly a "tv of the future" prototype?

Maybe the screen unit for an early projection TV. The CRT would have been in a separate housing.

I found this.

Caption from 1961: TV viewers of the 1970s will see their programs on sets quite different from today's, if designs now being worked out are developed. At the Home Furnishings Market in Chicago, Illinois, on June 21, 1961, a thin TV screen is a feature of this design model. Another feature is an automatic timing device which would record TV programs during the viewers' absence to be played back later. The 32x22-inch color screen is four inches thick.#

I found this. Not exactly the same, but I think we are on the right track.

A mock up of a future design "if designs now being worked out are developed". Not a real TV.

The first "flat screen" TV was based on the Aiken Tube. It came out in 1958. A thin version of the CRT which used side scanning, but there were licensing and standards issues to be resolved and it saw only limited production run for use in military aircraft radar and test gear such as O' scopes.

It is likely what the mockup was alluding to.
