Learn More About The TV Drawing

Television, or TV, tele, or telly for short, describes "the electronic delivery of moving images and sound from a source to a receiver."

Early in the twentieth century, television was conceived as a medium for communication and education. By the middle of the century, it had forever changed popular culture, news, and entertainment.

By the early 1900s, prototypes of the television were successfully demonstrated. Many used radio waves and the images were barely recognizable. In 1909, for example, one model had only 8 by 8 pixels.

The world's first television station was created in 1928. Early television sets were huge boxes with very small screens. Until 1948, most channels only broadcast on the weekends and between the "primetime" hours of 8 and 11 pm.

In 1954, television was broadcast in color rather than in black and white for the first time. More than a decade passed before full-color television became the norm.

Of the advent of television in the United States, the Encyclopedia Britannica says: "One aspect of early television that can never be recaptured is the combined sense of astonishment and glamour... crowds would gather on the sidewalks in front of stores that displayed a working television set...

By the end of television's first decade, it was widely believed to have greater influence on American culture than parents, schools, churches, and government."

Today, viewing screens have become a part of our daily lives. Computer, phone, and television screens all share similar roles. They deliver information, entertain us, and allow us to connect and communicate with others. This ever-evolving medium is likely to continue to change.
