    No review of the Consumer Electronics industry is complete without making some observations as to the decrease in the number of failures occurring. This article deals specifically with consumer color television receivers, but approaches, technologies and results are indeed representative of and applicable to other existing and future consumer electronic products.

  • Safety Requirements for Radio and Television Receivers -- 1928 to the Present

    Publication Year: 1984 , Page(s): 38 - 45
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (5513 KB)  

    THE CONSUMER electronics industry has seen significant technological progress during the last 50 years, especially with respect to radio and television receivers. Transitions from single-band, table-top radios in simple wooden cabinets to multi-band, multi-purpose communications receivers in stylish polymeric enclosures; from 4-tube hand-wired AM receivers to automatically-assembled, semiconductor-circuited entertainment centers; and from 5-inch black-and- white television receivers to remotecontrolled giant color screens epitomize this progress.

  • Preserving The History of Television at UCLA The Collection of Television Technology and Design

    Publication Year: 1984 , Page(s): 46 - 61

    The Collection of Television Technology and Design is maintained by the UCLA Film, Television, and Radio Archives to ensure the preservation of historically significant television equipment and related documentation. The goal of the University of California Collection is to illustrate the evolution of both home receivers and broadcasting hardware. The effort was initiated when it was realized that no major institution was actively identifying, locating, acquiring, and exhibiting the major milestones of the development of television technology. A brief investigation uncovered that many significant items had been lost or destroyed, and tragically, a number of collections and exhibitions previously supported by major corporations had been disbanded.

    At the end of 1971 although there were in the United States and Canada over 100 million television receivers in use, the hearing-impaired community had been largely deprived of the benefits of television programming. With the exception of some sports events, the sound portion of the program carries a significant part of the intelligence so that without it the program cannot be enjoyed. While the hearing-impaired can be served to a limited extent by the addition of "open captions" to programs, (sub-titles seen on all receivers), viewers with normal hearing find open captions distracting and therefore it is not a general solution to the problem.

  • The Evolution of Consumer VTRs--Technological Milestones

    The last half decade has seen dramatic growth in video tape recorder (VTR) technology, the VTR industry, and most remarkably in its non-broadcasting and consumer-oriented sector. The video cassette recorder and its related industry have risen, during this short span of years, to play one of the most important roles in the worldwide electronics industry today.** Who but David Sarnoff [1.04], back around 1965, when 'home VTRs' were making their initial appearance on the market, had thought of today? Indeed, their growth has been somewhat logarithmic. Although exact figures are yet hard to truly identify, 1983 sales of consumer VCRs in the U.S. have been reported as reaching 4.1 million units [TV Digest, Jan. 16, 19841, and for another example, total Japanese production of home VCRs during last year was reported in other sources as already being above 18 million units. It has also been predicted that production will reach 22 million units in 1984 as shown in Figure 1. View full abstract»

    The principal economic issue confronting the U. S. consumer electronics industry is how to reverse the continuing decline of the past several decades. This period witnessed the loss to Japan of the radio, hi-fi, and monochrome TV industry, among others. In color television, only three of more than 25 American companies have survived.

    IN THE YEAR 640 B. C., a Greek philosopher named Thales found to his astonishment that when he rubbed a piece of amber, or "elektron" as it was then called, it became capable of attracting straws and other light objects. From this humble beginning man went on to scientific and technological advances which were to change the course of civilization more than twenty centuries later. He discovered electricity, investigated its properties, determined its relationship to magnetism, and penetrated the basic secrets of the atom. With each new step he set about to apply his new-found knowledge so that he might harness this undreamed-of power to increase his comfort, safeguard his health, and improve his prosperity.
