This chapter examines the early evolution of television, and surveys how television was applied to the light microscope in the three decades up to the mid 1970s, a period of exploration and early development for video microscopy. Following this is a brief glance at the striking improvements in light microscopy that became possible with the introduction of modern video and related technology. The introductory survey concludes with a few general remarks on the chapters that follow, whose overall plan of organization was outlined in the Preface.
