There is something humorous about a rotary video phone.
CREATING A NEW WORLD WITH ELECTRONICS
How soon will you be able to see over the phone?
It may be sooner than you think. For the remarkable new Hughes tonotronâ€”now used for high-fidelity transmission of maps and other navigational pictures to ships and aircraftâ€”will make possible “face-to-face” telephone calls to and from your office or home.
The tonotron is only one example of Hughes Products leadership in research and development of electron tubes and related advances in electronics, such as transistors and diodes. It is with products like these that science will bring about the dynamic electronics eraâ€”in which you will have on-the-wall television, electronic control of factory production, and countless other marvels.
As one of the country’s largest electronics research and manufacturing firms, Hughes Products backs its semiconductors, cathode ray tubes, and industrial systems and controls with a long record of technical accomplishments. These include the “thinking” falcon air-to-air missile, and the self-directing Hughes Automatic Armament Control which is standard equipment on all Air Force interceptors.
Undoubtedly there is a time- and money-saving application of Hughes electronic products to your own business. A Hughes Products sales engineer will welcome the opportunity to work with your staff. Please write: Hughes Products, Los Angeles 45, California.
