The Journey of the Television So Far

Right from Philo Farnsworthy, RCA and John Logie Baird days, the Television has gained prominence.

We owe it to John Logie Baird.

As the technology kept evolving every few decades, Radio started losing steam. With the number of television programs on the rise, TVs have found a place to stay in the living room.

When Color blossomed

The initial TV series which began with a Black and White design bloomed to the Color series. Thanks to John Logie Baird.

Dissatisfied with the initial technology, John Logie Baird commenced working on the colour technology. Network broadcasters were also not pushing the advance, because color required approximately three times the bandwidth of black and white.

The journey of television has ever been expanding. From the early experiments with visual transmissions, two types of television systems came into existence: mechanical television and electronic television. Mechanical television developed out of Nipkow’s disk system and was pioneered by John Logie Baird.

At the same time, Philo Farnsworth realized that an electronic beam could scan a picture in horizontal lines, reproducing the image almost instantaneously. In 1927, Philo Farnsworth transmitted the first electronic television picture by rotating a single straight line scratched onto a square piece of painted glass by 90 degrees.

The Era of High-Definition Television began when the developments were in full swing to create crystal-clear pictures in a wide-screen format through the HDTV.

High-definition television or HDTV was an attempt to provide the viewer with an almost three-dimensional experience. With a higher resolution than standard television systems, HDTV used five times as many pixels per frame for better clarity.

Digital Broadcasting

The digital era began in 90s when 139 cable programming service channels were available nationwide. The most sweeping change in color television involved digital broadcasts. Rather than employing analog waveforms with distinct signals, digital broadcasting employs multiplex signals to deliver more information in the same data stream.

Smart TV

Smart TV is up for grabs. With the 24*7 streaming and latest on the technology, consumers are opting for smart TVs.

With Netflix, TIVO, Roku and Chromecast currently ruling the consumer market- more people are also looking forward to exciting media streamers and players being a part of their living room accompaniments.
