RCA Engineer Loren Jones on Gen. Sarnoff & Dr. Zworykin developing television


was workin first saw sarna and proposed
the television be developed by RCA and said that he had a method to do it all
electronic which was better than the mechanical method which Sarnoff had
heard of even though start off with the president of RCA and most president
don’t spend a lot of tension to technical developments he knew about
television he knew what what its potential would be and he did his best
to get the electronic method proposed by his work and originally proposed by dr.
Rosen in Russia many years before he’s the one who got the thing started on the
electronic basis tell us the story that dr. Sarnoff likes to tell about his
working when he asked doctors work and how much would this cost well he the
minute Sarnoff saw more a medic met him he saw this spark in Morrison’s I that
here is the man I want that I’ve been looking for to to really develop
television something with RCA should have in his future even though no one
knows what it what it is he has Sarnoff he has work and how much
will it cost to develop this system that you’re proposing and Zworykin and is
naive but perfectly honest awaits at $100,000 that was a lot of money and
Sarnoff whether he realize it or not said okay fine you haven’t it was 15
million 15 million 15 years later and 15 million dollars later that RSA made his
first money on television but Sarnoff never regretted I’m sure his original
decision to play along with is now even better
dr. Vladimir Zworykin
