Campbell-Swinton Proposes Electronic Television


A.A. Campbell-Swinton, an electrical engineer, publishes proposals about an all-electronic television system that uses a cathode ray tube for both receiver and camera. Three years later, in 1911, he describes his cathode ray system in detail in “Scientific American”. The article discusses future uses of television. Entertainment is not among them.
