TV Remote Control 1956

Recommended Posts

Wayne, this angle is better. You’re right, this might be the tv I was thinking of! 1969. It was huge!

The plastic pedestal shape was distinctive. I understand several pedestal models derived from the expensive 1969 RCA 2000 model. Itself probably derived from the 

2001 A Space Odyssey aesthetic of 1968. Would fit right in on the Discovery One.

Don't know whether I mentioned this before, but at AT&T in Cincinnati one of my job duties was the television operating center, where the networks converged for distribution to three local TV stations. The company installed a small-screen RCA color monitor when color came out, and I became an early viewer of the new technology, occasionally showing it off to visitors during open house. Color barely improved the soap operas, but did make the commercials slightly less annoying!
