Historical Periods in Television Technology
Early TVs: click for more information about these images

The first element in the FCC History Project was focused on the technological history of television. During the summer of 2003, the FCC recognized some of television's key inventions and inventors. Through a small exhibit and display in its Washington, D.C. headquarters, the FCC hoped to inform and, possibly, inspire with a few reminders of the great achievements that make television as we know it today possible. Information and links on this web page are designed to provide a fuller understanding of television's technology.
