New TV Projector (Aug, 1950)

New TV Projector shown at a recent British exhibition, allows viewer to regulate size of screen image, as in the photos of girl below. The projector consists of a set of lenses and adjustable mirrors. It uses a two-and-a-half inch tube instead of the usual 12-inch type. The two tubes are set up at lower right for comparison.

    Who is that woman? She sure looks familiar.

    I thought the picture resembled a famous pose of Ingrid Bergman’s, myself.

    I believe you’re right, John. She looks a lot older than she did in ’42.

    John Savard: You’ll have to provide a link to that famous pose because I don’t think it looks like Ingrid Bergman

    Wasn’t there a projection TV tube based on the Newtonian telescope? Schmidt optics?

    The illustration? Not so much.

    Wouldn’t a larger tube work better?

    At YouTube there are several clips of early British Television shows.

    Search APTS.
