  • New VHF and UHF Varactor Tuners

    The VHF and UHF tuners are separate units, and each is manufactured and tested by itself. In the television instrument they are electrically interconnected and, in effect, comprise a three band, all channel, varactor tuner. In those instruments using the electromechanical channel selection system, the two units are mounted together with brackets and interconnections so as to provide a single V-U unit. In those instruments featuring the digital direct address system, each tuner is mounted on its associated address system module. View full abstract»

    A family of LSI frequency synthesizer circuits and their application to television and Citizen Band Radio are described. With a single crystal as the basic frequency reference, these circuits produce tuning accuracy and long term stability for a large number of frequencies at lower cost than for mechanical or crystal multiplexing methods.

  • Current Usage of Vertical Interval Test Signals in Television Broadcasting

    Vertical interval test signals (VITS) have been used for network transmission testing for about 20 years. What makes the subject of interest at the present time is: the recent adoption of a new series of network transmission test signals; the adoption of the VITS concept by the FCC in connection with the operation of television broadcast stations by remote control, and by the recent development of equipment which provides for the automatic remote monitoring of VITS and of other equipment which will provide for the automatic correction of distortions in the system as indicated by the test signals. The ultimate goal of VITS is higher quality television pictures --a goal which is becoming more and more important in order to fully exploit current technological advances including the trend towards larger picture display devices. This paper will describe the new network transmission test signals, the FCC test signals, how and why they differ, and how the signals are being utilized. The paper will also include a discussion of how the television industry is working together to develop a plan for the efficient use of all of the vertical blanking interval --in order to provide for these test signals as well as for a variety of other types of signals.

  • Improving Television Color Uniformity Through Use of the VIR Signal

    Color television in the United States began to grow rapidly in the early 1960' s. As the transition took place from a primarily monochrome to a primarily color service, it became increasingly evident that the color characteristics observed on home receivers varied substantially from program to program and station to station. At the suggestion of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), a meeting of the Joint Committee for Inter-Society Coordination (JCIC) was called in 1968 to determine the most effective way to deal with the problem.

  • A New Form of Extended Field Lens for Use in Color Television Picture Tube Guns

    Small neck inline beam color picture tubes and self-convergent yokes are rapidly gaining in popularity. The principal incentive for this trend is, of course, the cost savings resulting from self-convergence. Although this combination produces competitive performance in small picture sizes, conventional small neck, bi-potential, inline guns do not produce adequate resolution for large screen sizes. Zenith's new 19V 100°ABLE tube(l) employs a new extended field lens (EFL) gun which overcomes this limitation. This extended field lens utilizes a novel axial potential distribution. Spot size performance for the gun is significantly better than that of contemporary large neck delta gun tubes. View full abstract»
