    The future excellence of our educational system will depend largely upon the extent to which the capabilities of modern technology are exploited. TV in particular promises to play an important role by solving many problems in elementary, secondary, and higher education. MPATI, a large scale educational experiment involving a TV transmitter in an aircraft, is beginning operations this spring. View full abstract»

  • TV is feasible for Regular Graduate Courses

    During the first semester of 1960-61 at the University of Wisconsin an experiment in education by TV has been conducted by the University in co-operation with Wisconsin industries. The occasion for this particular experiment was that travel between Milwaukee and Madison by the E.E. staff for the E.E. Department's part-time graduate program in Milwaukee has grown to be so burdensome that the Department has been reevaluating the program in terms of effort expended and results obtained. This reevaluation led to general dissatisfaction with the educational validity of graduate courses run once a week for a period of 2-1/ 2 hours in the evening. A first attempt to improve the program involved beginning the session at 4:30 P.M. (instead of 7:20 P.M. which had been the starting time). This change brought some improvement, but feeling remained general that performance was still inadequate. View full abstract»

    The current trend in cathode-ray tube designs for use in modern TV receivers seem to fall into two categories: (1) More rectangular or ``squared off'' faceplates in order to provide more viewing area for a given aspect ratio. (2) Increased deflection angles so that the overall length of the CRT may be reduced for a given deflection angle. This is necessary for the popular ``slimline'' type of cabinetry.

    A Foster-Seeley discriminator is used to detect the FM or PM information in a stereo signal. It is desired to design the detector for optimum sensitivity and linearity without excessive sacrifice of gain in the last I-F stage. View full abstract»

    Since the quality of E. H. Land's two-color pictures has been subject to discussion, two groups of students were asked to judge the quality of Land's pictures. The preparation of the slides and the experimental setup is described. The results show the inferiority of E. H. Land's system in its actual form to ordinary tricolor projection. From the results it appears that the mechanism of color transformation works well with most people tested, but that the lack of information contained in the slide photographed through the blue filter is considered serious. An interesting detail is that a minority of people can detect very little or no difference between the two forms of projection. View full abstract»
