    Recent years have seen continued growth in the application of computer modeling to design and analysis of electron guns for cathode ray tubes. This has been especially true with the advent of self converging deflection systems in color cathode-ray-tube technology, where increasing emphasis has been placed on the interaction of the electron gun and deflection field. Computer modeling allows a rigor... View full abstract»

    In the continuing evolution of high performance electron guns for color TV three newer designs are presently being considered for use in 29-mm neck in-line applications, with a single focus voltage set at 28% of anode. These three are: a high voltage bipotential (or Hi Bi) design, and two hybrid lens designs, a unipotential bipotential (or Uni Bi) and a bipotential unipotential (or Bi Uni). View full abstract»

    Conventional color picture tubes suffer the drawback of "blooming", i. e. reduction of the resolution at higher currents. It is well-known that such problem cannot be solved without considering the relation between the spot size and the spherical aberration of electron lenses. View full abstract»

    Approximately forty years ago, the first commercial video projection system was introduced. Until quite recently all projection systems were designed for institutional use only. In 1972, however, the Sony Corporation unveiled a projection system1) for consumer use at the International Convention and Exposition sponsored by IEEE. Since that time, as the quality of large-screen pictures improved, an... View full abstract»

    Today television receivers have reached a stage where electronic tuners are widely used in the place of mechanical ones. Basically two types of the digital tuning system are existing. One is voltage synthesizing utilizing a digital to analogue converter (D-A converter) and a semiconductor memory device. The other is frequency synthesizing utilizing a 1 GHz prescaler. We have already successfully d... View full abstract»

    A new family of compact TV sets with built-in batteries, which are portable in the true sense of the word and always ready to use even if no external power source is available, was born several years ago. And since then a lot of models, combination of TV with either one or some of such functions as radio, cassette recorder and clock, have been brought into the market. The present paper describes t...

    Among various approaches for realizing a practical ghost canceller, the one based on an adaptive transversal filter has recently been studied most enthusiastically.(1) ~(3) The inherent merit of this approach lies in the fact that it can cancel diffused multiple ghosts, generated by complex transmission path irregularities. This feature can not be attained by a single-delay-line ghost canceller. View full abstract»

    Advances in cost effective consumer I. C. technology have made it attractive to redesign the chroma system consolidating all active circuit functions into a single chip. The design goals for the new system were: 1) It must retrofit into the system. (No new modules other than the chroma module itself can be generated.) 2) Parts count must be minimized. 3) Adjustments must be minimized. 4) The amoun... View full abstract»
