TV Tubes Get Bigger…And Tuners Cross the Room (Sep, 1950)
TV Tubes Get Bigger…And Tuners Cross the Room
Larger TV screens are featured in most current telesets, with 14- to 19-inch tubes getting the biggest play. General Electric promises a 24-inch set for this fall, and Du Mont is showing the giant 30-incher above. It’s the largest direct-view set to date, has 536 square inch picture area, and is suitable for restaurants, clubs, schools, and other public places.
Big tubes mean greater viewing distances. Some new sets provide for your comfort by allowing you to change programs from your easy chair. The Philco remote-control system, below and at the right, selects channels and adjusts sound and picture. The Zenith unit, at right below, changes stations. Its optional on all new Zenith sets, may be added later if desired.
