Who Invented The Television? Reacted Of People To John Logie Baird's Creation 90 Years Ago

In many countries around the world, the question of who invented the television always arise. Some people know the answer while others don't know. The question also appear in question papers during examinations. Now here is the answer, The mechanical television, also known as “the televisor was
invented by JOHN LOGIE BAIRD., 90 years ago and was first In 1924 Baird managed to transmit a flickering image across a distance of 10 feet and the following year, he had a breakthrough when he achieved TV pictures with light and shade.

Baird was a Scottish engineer and inventor born in 1888 in Helensburgh, Scotland. He was the youngest of four sons of a clergyman. As a boy he loved to experiment with electronics - he even rigged up a telephone exchange to connect his bedroom to his friend's across the street.
From 1914 to 1915, Baird was a student at the University of Glasgow, reading engineering.Baird cut short his studies when he tried to voluntarily sign up for national service in 1915 but was turned down on health grounds.   

In 1926 the historic public display took place on January 26, in a laboratory in Soho in front of members from the Royal Institution and a journalist from the Times.
Although the pictures were small, measuring just 3.5 by 2 inches, the process was revolutionary.
“The image as transmitted was faint and often blurred, but substantiated a claim that through the ‘televisor,’ as Mr Baird has named his apparatus, it is possible to transmit and reproduce instantly the details of movement, and such things as the play of expression on the face,” wrote the reporter from the Times after the demonstration.
Baird returned to the University of Glasgow in 1928, when he gave a lecture, simply titled 'Television', to students in the Engineering Society. He explained how the television worked, the difficulties he overcame and the benefits of a wireless system.
He is also said to have expressed a belief that television would soon be of commercial importance.
Baird developed colour TV and brought out the world's first mass-produced television set in 1929 and from then until 1937 the BBC used Baird’s company for its television broadcasts.
The mechanical TV didn’t last much longer, however - it was outstripped by the electronic television in the 1930s. This didn’t deter Baird, who continued to work in television innovation and eventually gave the first demonstration of a fully electronic colour TV in 1944.

Baird died after suffering a stroke on June 14th 1946 in Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex aged 58.
Today, as seen from the invention of television, we have television in all design and sizes with newest technologies.
