Technology: cathode ray tube first ideas of using Cathode rays (Braun's tube) for Television came from the Englishman Campbell Swinton in 1908. The Frenchman Rignoux and the Russian Rosing experimented also with the Braun's tube for the same reason, just like Belin and Holweck who used Cathode rays for their TV receiver and demonstrated it in Malmaison in 1928.

Thank you, Philo Famsworth, for your contribution towards the first TV,

September 1927 - First success in the invention of television occurs by American inventor Philo Taylor Farnsworth. The complete electronic television system would be patented three years later on August

There were two main approaches to television technology. The mechanical television systems were mostly based off of Paul Nipkow’s rotating disks, which dissected an image and transmitted it as a sequence of points and lines. Nipkow was the first to realize that television required the analysis of small portions of images. Although there were several attempts to build the a television with Nipkow’s disks, the first successful tv system combined the disks and the electronic cathode ray tube.
