Who was the inventor of color television?

People wrongly suggest that Germans or Americans invented Color Television, since they gave the first color advertised broadcast, but it was indeed the work of John Logie Baird. He was a Scottish engineer and inventor of the world's first working television system in Hastings, England in 1923. He gave a public demonstration of the "Televisor" in 1925.

In 1928, he showed off the color Televisor, using red green and blue light to generate a full color picture. This was the first example of color television although it never went into production. The BBC had committed to broadcasting television and had settled on the monochrome Televisor system for their launch in 1929. There was no market for color at the time and the technology of the era made color television a cumbersome system.

In 1939, he showed color television using a cathode ray tube in front of which revolved a disc fitted with color filters, a method taken up by CBS and RCA in the United States. In recent times, the revolving disc has made a comeback in the shape of DLP projectors that also use rotating color filters.

On 16 August 1944 he gave the world's first demonstration of a fully electronic color television display. He used color encoding systems that have formed the basis for much of the color television industry ever since.

Commercial color television made it's first appearance in the US in 1953, a commercial failure withdrawn after a few months and again in 1955. The second attempt was successful and remained in use ever since. 1967 was the date that the UK finally introduced color broadcasts.

In 1941 He patented and demonstrated a system of three dimensional television at a definition of 600 lines. A full 70 years later, we see 3D television becoming commonly available.

What quote describes how you live your life?

"Seasons will pass you by". It puts things into perspective for me when nothing else does. If times are tough I'm reminded that it's a season in my life and it will pass me by. If things are going well, I'm reminded that it's not permamnent and to enjoy it while I can. The phrase also reminds me that my time here will pass, and that the world will keep spinning without giving me a second thought. It sounds bleak, but it really helps put my place in the world into perspective.

Answers with David Mazouz?

How did you snag the role of Bruce Wayne in FOX's upcoming TV series Gotham, premiering September 22nd?

Actually, it was a pretty long audition process. I went on an audition and I met with Bruno Heller, the brilliant creator of the show, and the casting director. I had a little audition, and they wanted me to come back for it later and test for it immediately. So I did...and then I tested for it again, and then I tested for it again, and then I think one more time after that--so I did quite a few tests. One of them they actually cut my hair for and I had a whole big, huge mound of hair cut on the floor when they had my hair cut for one of the tests. I think that was the last test. After the last test, I felt really good about it, and the amount of kids they were looking at was getting smaller and smaller. After the last test, I was getting fidgety because a week and a half later we still didn't know anything. Two weeks later I found out that I had booked it!

I was actually in a public place when I found out I booked it. My mom found out the day before, but I had gotten in trouble at school that day and it was my sister's birthday, so she didn't want to tell me that day. She told me the day after and I was in a public place when I found out; my agent told me and I was in shock. I didn't want to scream because there were people around me when I ended up getting it.

Is media spoiling your young generation or not?

"Media" is a term that covers a vast array of information storage and delivery. It includes newspapers, magazines, books, radio, television, computer based storage and retrieval.

Do newspapers spoil our young generation? Probably not. And on line news services are also not considered to be harmful to young people. No doubt, content is available that delivers poor moral messages to people, young and old. Content on social media sites is often of such a poor quality that it is barely understandable and of no value at all.

It is far too general to arrive at an answer to the question. Some media are very good for children and teenagers, others are just the opposite. However, to blame a medium for harming a generation is simplistic and probably incorrect. Look to content carried by the medium to judge it, not the medium itself.

What is the video '3 Guys 1 Hammer'?

"3 Guys 1 Hammer" Also known as the Dnepropetrovsk Killers/Maniacs. This is a real brutal SNUFF (murder) video that has been circulating the Internet about 3 Ukrainian/Russian teenagers who beat a man to death with a hammer, stabbed him, tortured him and pulled out his eyes with a screwdriver. YouTube has pulled it off their site - as have many others websites. It is the most graphic, violent and evil thing to see. You are watching a man being killed and actually die on video. Don't watch it; there are some things that don't ever need to be seen. It cannot be erased from your memory. The names of the Dnepropetrovsk killers are:

Igor Suprunyuck, Viktor Sayenko and Alexander Hanzha.

The 3 defendants (sociopaths), who proudly made this evil video and others of themselves murdering people, were found guilty on February 11, 2009, of murdering the man in the named video - as well as 20 others - attacking 29 people in all "for their fun" in the span of less than a month between 25th June - 16th July 2007. The victims ranged from a 14-year-old boy to women to elderly cancer patients.

Suprunyuck and Sayenko were sentenced to life imprisonment; Hanzha received nine years in prison for these indiscriminate killings. Click on the Related Link below to read more about these horrendous crimes.

Answers with Maria Menounos?

Do you plan on writing another book in the EveryGirl's series?

I'll be writing till the day I die, particularly nonfiction help books in the EveryGirl series. It's probably the reporter in me but I have a deep passion for gathering and sharing information, especially with fellow women. I feel like many people's lives can be positively enhanced if they come in contact with the proper information. Growing up, my parents and I lacked information on a host of subjects that made life far more difficult than it needed to be. I want to help people, especially women, avoid that.

So July 6th is a bittersweet day as the fourth and final season of "Every Witch Way" premieres. Does this season have an extra special meaning to you? What are your feelings going into the last season?

This season was so much fun to film and It's different from any other season the fans have seen. Forget everything you thought you knew! This season is bittersweet because it is wrapping up but it's been such an amazing experience for me, not only as an actress professionally, but as a person, too. I have had so much fun these past few months of filming, especially in the Everglades! I know the fans are gonna love it!

Answers with Jonny Pasvolsky?

Your villainous role as Emil Strago sets you directly up against Mortdecai--Johnny Depp--in the pursuit of the most famous painting in the world. What was it like to work with Johnny Depp? Was it every bit as awesome as you imagined?

I could answer that in just a "Yes" -- in one word -- but it really was everything. It was actually beyond what I expected. You never know what people are like and how open they will be and he was so open with me as an actor and as a person. He was welcoming of me and excited, he was great. It's a gift, it's a dream come true...to use all the cliches in the book, it's everything I had hoped it to be. I had looked up to him for a very long time in terms of his work, so it's safe to say he didn't disappoint. He gave it everything.

How do you set wii up to LED tv?

The Wii operates in standard definition so the cables that are supplied with it should work. Most modern televisions have RCA (or phono) connectors for audio and composite video. The standard Wii connector should connect to one of these sets of connectors.

In Europe, televisions may have a scart connector instead of phono sockets. In this case, a scart adaptor may be needed to make the final connection.

Does it cost more money to turn off a tv when left a room and then back turn it back on in a few minutes or does it cost less money to just leave it on when left a room for a bit?

There are two factors to consider:

1. How much money will be saved by the savings in electricity when the TV is off?

2. Is the life of the TV reduced by turning it on and off frequently, so you will have to pay to repair or replace the TV sooner?

It will usually cost less to turn the TV off if you will be gone more than a short time.

Answers with Costa Ronin?

FX's "The Americans" has been described as a Cold War thriller that's dark but intriguing. What kind of historical knowledge do you need to understand "The Americans"?

None. It appeals equally to those who lived through those turbulent times and those who were not even born yet. "The Americans" takes us back 30 years to the peak of the Cold War when the two superpowers had the fate of the world in their hands. The reason the show has become what it is today is not because of its premise, but because of the characters that take the audience on this amazing journey. This show is about people like you and me, people with hopes and dreams, people who love, who hurt, who want to grow old and see their grandchildren...but these people have a job to do. They do it because they believe that what they do makes the world a better place on both sides of the iron curtain.
