Abstract

The implementation of the black-and-white television broadcasting in the United States in 1939 was followed by color TV in 1953. Then, David Sarnoff, president of the Radio Corporation of America, had the next big dream to replace the furniture used to house cathode-ray tube TVs with picture frame that could be hanged on walls. He knew that the system development and element development needed an understanding of basic science as well as state-of-the-art technology and hired excellent researchers to work in the Princeton Institute of RCA in order to create the necessary new technologies.
