RCA’s New Multiscreen TV Lets You Switch to Where the Action Is (Jun, 1970)
This reminds me of the TV sets that the President or James Bond had in movies. It really should be concealed behind some sort of rotating wet bar and make a melodic beeping noise when you press the button to reveal it.
RCA’s New Multiscreen TV Lets You Switch to Where the Action Is
With four black-and-white monitors and a 25-inch color screen, this television set of the future doesn’t miss a trickâ€”or a channel

The strange television set you are looking at will probably have a lot to do with the kind of set you’ll be able to buy in the future, even though it is not for sale.
I first saw it in a top-secret room of an RCA plant in Indianapolis, Ind. There it sat, a 6 and a half foot long box of smoky Plexiglas wrapped around five TV screens and some mighty fancy electronics. It was being readied for a smash unveiling before a meeting of distributors, but not as an item they could ever offer to the public. Then why was it built?

You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet
When television really starts rolling, modern electronic miracles will enable it to play a major role in every phase of your life in addition to providing your home entertainment.
By Henry M. Lewis, Jr.
LUCILLE Ball, Arthur Godfrey and Uncle Miltie may have been hogging the TV spotlight but a new type of program is just around the corner.
The same brains that were responsible for television’s becoming your master in your own home now are working night and day to make it your servant everywhere else. Even now it has begun to work for you in your office, farm, factory, classroom, bank, super-market, department store, neighborhood theater and a whole host of other places too numerous to mention. Why, it’ll even work for you in a traffic jam!
Let’s take a look at tomorrow. You’re going shopping and your route takes you through a vehicular tunnel under a broad river. There has been a smashup before you reach the tunnel, but traffic doesn’t choke up either entrance. A squad car, wrecker and ambulance are on the scene. How? Because a dispatcher at police headquarters saw the accident on a television set.
