This paper describes a single-gun cathode-ray display system (the Apple System) for color television receivers based on the phenomenon of secondary emission. An index signal, derived from a secondary emissive structure built into the screen of the tube, continuously indicates the position of the scanning spot relative to the color phosphor structure. This positional information is combined with the color television signal, and the combined signal modulates the scanning spot in amplitude and phase in such a manner that the spot sequentially illuminates the primary colors in the appropriate amounts and proportions to reproduce the intended scene. This paper describes the general features of the system and the philosophy behind its development, and the derivation of the index signal and its utilization in the color-processing and grid-drive circuits.
