  TELEVISION
The electrical signal is delivered from the television camera to the display device via a cascade of processing, storage, and transmission systems, which may include transmission by electromagnetic waves, as in terrestrial (“over-the-air”) and satellite broadcast systems, or by cable and optical fibers, as in cable systems.
This ensures that a desired television signal can be received at most locations in the station's service area most of the time, with an acceptably low level of interference from undesired television signals operating on the same or adjacent channels.
Television, including prerecorded video, interactive television, and multimedia, is used extensively and effectively for education and training in schools, colleges, businesses, and government operations including the military.

 Jenkins, Charles Francis
Charles Francis Jenkins was a leading inventor and promoter of mechanical scanning television and largely responsible for strong and passionate interest in television in the 1920s and early 1930s in the United States.
In December 1928 the Jenkins Television Corporation was founded in New Jersey to sell Jenkins television equipment and operate television stations to promote the sale of receivers to the public and equipment for experimenters and other experimental stations.
The limitations inherent in mechanical television's picture quality kept it from being able to compete with electronic scanning television systems and it was, therefore, deemed a failure and doomed to quick obsolescence in America.

 J.L. BAIRD "Television in 1932"
First of all we mean by television the process of being able to see, through the medium of electrical methods of transmission, the reproduction of images of living, moving, or stationary objects which are at sorne distance from the observer.
Corning to the process itself, the subjects to be televised are positioned in front of a Baird spot-light transmitter - and explored by a rapidly moving spot of light.
A similar state of affairs exists in France, where Television Baird- Nathan is using the wireless station P.T.T. on the outskirts of Paris for the experimental broadcast of television, and we are now constructing a transmitter for them on the same lines as that being used in Broadcasting House.

 U. A. Sanabria
The television images were in silhouette and blurred and it was barely possible to distinguish between the image of a person's hand with outstretched fingers and that of a wrench.
My next contact with Chicago television came in the Spring of 1928, when a quick trip was made to Sanabria's laboratory to borrow a pair of synchronous motors for use in the demonstration of television at the University of Illinois biannual Electrical Engineering Show.
The educational aspect of television was further emphasized in a talk before a group of Broadcast executives at Ohio State University in the spring of 1931.

 Television in 1932
A bank of photo-electric cells is placed in front of the artist, and this "television eye" follows the movement of the spot of light and picks up that amount of light which is reflected from the spot playing on the subject being televised.
The beam of light modulated by the grid cell is projected on to a revolving mirror drum, and this in turn is reflected on to a translucent screen positioned in front of the drum.
A similar state of affairs exists in France, where Television Baird-Nathan is using the wireless station P.T.T. on the outskirts of Paris for the experimental broadcast of television, and we are now constructing a transmitter for them on the same lines as that being used in Broadcasting House.

 JOHN LOGIE BAIRD INVENTOR OF TELEVISION
In his first attempts to invent television, Baird experimented with the Nipkow disk and demonstrated that a semi-mechanical analogue television system was possible with the transmission of a static image of a ventriloquist's dummy in London in February 1924.
The first true television system (with gradations of light and shade) was demonstrated to the Royal Institution and a reporter from The Times on January 26, 1926 in the Soho district of London (at 22 Frith Street).
Baird's television systems were therefore replaced by an electronic television system developed by EMI-Marconi under Isaac Shoenberg, similar to the system described by A.A. Campbell-Swinton, improved by Kalman Tihanyi in 1926, and initially developed by Vladimir Zworykin.

 Modern Mechanix » Build a Fan Motor Television Receiver
Several broadcasting stations are on the air transmitting on both long and short waves, and have so perfected their apparatus that a simple receiver like that illustrated in the accompanying drawings will bring out the pictures with a fair degree of clarity and brilliancy.
The construction of a television receiver is actually not so complicated as the construction of a broadcast receiver, and the expense is probably ]ess.
It will take a little time to learn to control a television receiver, but once you have the “hang of it” you will find plenty of amusement and a chance to do a bit of experimenting to further the cause of television, which is bound to improve with time.
