History of Technology:
The Television 1983 1992 1985 1998 2007 2010 2008 2013 By: Sean Lee 8-6 Most Common T.V. Models in 1983 25 inch Woodgrain T.V. 25 inch Console T.V. Description:
Weight : 116lbs
Frame Playback Rate : 24 & 30 Frame
Dimensions : 21.5inch x 35inch x 32inch Description:
Weight : 85lbs
Frame Playback Rate : 24 & 30 Frame
Dimensions: 21.5inch x 31.5inch x 20 inch AKA Present Day Cultural and Historical Background -colour screen T.V.'s were now accessible to the general public and to low income families due to the lower prices
-T.V.'s were a regular part of North American lives
-8/10 American households owned a television
-the average American household watched approximately 30 hours of television in 1983
-there were 50 different media corporations that controlled their own private media broadcasting, from news to documentaries
-after the introduction of the T.V. to the general public in 1950's and the colour T.V. in the late 1960's during the 1980's, television was part of daily lives for many North Americans This T.V. was manufactured and was sold the the general public and the world during the late 1970's. This T.V. was more preferable during this time than the other T.V. that was most commonly used at this time because of both this lighter weight and the smaller size. This T.V. had the capabilities for a VHF and RF sound. Manufactured and created during the beginning of 1980, this T.V. was a relatively new television that hit the markets in the United States. Most people did not prefer this television due to it's bulky size and shape, although the larger size meant more room for improvements, so this T.V. so this television had a greater capacity to have better quality sound than the other one.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Television Invention of the remote control Although wireless and wired remote controls did exist before then, but they were called Lazy Bones or the "Zenith Space Command", it wasn't actually before 1985 that an actual remote control that had the ability to control the basics of the T.V. (sound, channel, volume,etc) The remote control that actually gave the full potential and control over the television was created by a Canadian Company by the name of Viewstar Inc. Their new remote control was revolutionizing to the television industry due to its capabilities to have control over the television such as sound, volume, channel switching. The new remote was sold for a hefty price of $190 CAD, but due to its larger amount of functions, it surpassed the cheaper and more popular remote at that time, which was Starcom of Jerrold (which was a division of Texas Instruments, most well-known for manufacturing all the calculators in Ms. Habash's Room). And by 1989, 4 years after the main production, over 1 million products had been sold at a rate that surpassed almost all the sales rate for any remote control marketed so far. Although Viewstar Inc. was the founder of this newly developed technology, due to the lack of larger production and manufacturing and other larger television companies copying the technology, Viewstar Inc. went broke by the early 1990's and dissolved the company and not much record of the company remains today. Advancement of the Computer Characteristics of the Advancement of the Computer -MUCH smaller
-progressively thinner
-screen quality increases as the advancement progresses
-Data capabilities are greatly increased as the computer progressively advances
-becomes more accessible
-more interactive (no mouse, mouse, touchscreen) Advancement of the Television Built in 1946 by the United States Navy, the first computer was the size of a large house and had to cool down every hour. Comparing the development of the T.V. to the computer Similarities between the development of the computer and the advancement of the T.V. -progressively thinner
-screen and visual quality greatly increased
-performance greatly increased
-more interactive (touch screen for computers, smart T.V.'s for T.V.s) The "New" Hybrid T.V is released May 6th 2012, the South Korean electronics titan, Samsung, released a so-called revolutionizing technology called the Smart T.V. The Smart T.V. had the capabilities of a high quality television and an integrated computer processing system. The Smart T.V. has enhanced processing capabilities and has a menu option for showing a menu strikingly similar to the menu option for Windows 8 processor. Several days later, Vizio released a strikingly similar one and couple days later, LG and Panasonic had released another version. With access to wireless internet and wired internet, the Smart T.V. has extreme similar use and form as an IPod or Smartphones. The Smart T.V.'s origins came from an idea back in 1973 when there was an idea to merge a T.V. and a computer to form a pinnacle of electronic and technological advancement. However, the idea was short-lived and the project was abandoned in the early 1980's due to lack of proper funding and lack of technological development to merge the computer and the T.V. An effort was made in 1994-1995 for a T.V. to download and upload data from the internet and the T.V. was linked to data processing systems by means of a digital or analog connection with the internet. Apart from being linked to a single data network, one key point is its ability to automatically download necessary software to run the processors to possibly meet the consumer's needs and process it. Computer + T.V. part 2 Historical Background The world leading electronics companies had a dream; to unite the world's 2 most best-selling electronics into one product, either a computer-T.V. (computer, but as a T.V.) or a T.V.-computer (T.V., but as a computer, the difference between these two seem to defy logic). So the technology titans restarted the old dreams and rekindled lost hopes from the 1980's to the 1990's to make the new dream product, however many problems stood in the way, first of all, the technology at that time was not sufficient enough to make a fusion between the two electronics therefore the compromise was to create a whole new electronic to connect the T.V. to the internet to download and upload data. This had not been nearly what the electronic companies had wanted. But it had to suffice for now. 1983 was also the year Star Wars VI was released; a great pinnacle to our time. Advancement in Visual Quality Fujitsu creates the world's first LCD television Before the invention and marketing the first LCD television, all televisions simply showed pixels without any adjustments or anything; it all ran on pixels. Then a Japanese technology company, Fujitsu designed a higher amount of pixels on a television by making the size of the pixels even smaller and adjusting the projection of the lighting and image by projecting it from a multi-layered filtering panels before the projection reaches the pixels, thus making the image more refined and more detailed. In 1992, Fujitsu released the world's first 56inch LCD projected television for the public. The new T.V. had revolutionary quality and control and although these new T.V.'s were heavy and more bulky, the new T.V.'s sold quite well and gave Japanese products a world-wide reputation for being precise and high quality merchandise. T.V. Diets Begin to Rise in Fame Flatter Screens is the New Fashion Wires are soooooo Yesterday 1997 Return of the Visual Quality 2: Extra Large The Visual Qualities Strike Back 3:
Big and Bigger Just like Fujitsu had done 16 years ago, Panasonic had created an enormous television for mainly advertisement. Although this had caught the public's attention, the economic recession of 2008 had made the T.V. advertisement futile. Like the former, this titanic T.V. had sunk with not much money gained whatsoever Due to the rising number of television companies, there happened to be heavy amounts of competition from companies such as Samsung, the rising technology titan, Sony, the largest electronics company at that time, Panasonic, world's most famous battery producer, LG, a company that's so happy even the name rings of happiness, Sharp, a once great electronic titan back then, Toshiba, Sanyo and Mitsubishi, this trio was formerly three of the largest electronics companies in the world and of course, Phillips, the sole European electronics company. Now with all these companies competing to make the world's best T.V., something had to be done, one of these companies had to stand out, so Sony, had decided the create a flat screen T.V. Or at least a flatter screen. This new decision by Sony was thought to be a failure, however, these new flat screen T.V.'s began to sell very fast. Now having the flat screen was the "new thing." Having a flat screen T.V. meant smaller space usage for the television, meaning more room for improvements. But now, having a flat screen T.V. is much more appealing than having a thick, heavy and bulky T.V. Wanting to return to the public eye with their "amazing and revolutionizing" LCD projection T.V., Fujitsu created a 107cm (enormous in the standards back then) with 854x480 pixels. This enormous (by the standards back then) T.V. was caught in the public eye, however, this titanic was a bust and it sunk because not much more sales were made even with the display and advertisement marketing. 3-D T.V. Hit the Markets A Dark Day when People with glasses want to watch 3-D movies... Armed with black glasses that have shaded tint plastic as lenses, 3-D T.V.'s began to flood the markets when Phillips, the sole European television production company and Sony and Toshiba (but mainly Sony had manufactured the 3-D T.V.s), Japanese technology companies both created and simultaneously released a 3-D television in 2010. Although 3-D film and technology has been around since 1953, the 3-D films has been legendary for the awful quality and terrible, but with the recent upgrade with projection from the different T.V.'s (such as LCD, LED, plasma, etc) the 3-D film was a possible reality. Most people with glasses would disagree with this point, however, the idea of 3-D glasses was completely unheard of before. It was a completely new idea created by Sony and copied by all the other companies. After 1 week of off the charts sales for the 3-D television from Sony, Toshiba and Phillips, Samsung completed the same T.V. but with larger screens, but due to high profit margins back then, they had the ability to lower the costs more than the other competitors, so the sales for Samsung skyrocketed. Several days later, LG, Sharp and Vizio released their each own T.V. However, Samsung still stole many of the sales and markets. Computer + T.V. part 1 Revived Dreams What is a T.V.? This question may seem stupid, but a survey shows that 78.23% of North Americans do not understand how a T.V. exactly works. Here is a T.V. in a nutshell. Imagine a canvas, now the T.V. screen in the canvas, but how does the image display and videos work exactly? The T.V. screen is made up of millions of dots known as pixels. Each one of these pixels are assigned a colour when data is sent through a semi conductor (which is basically a electric relay (which basically sending electrical signals through to each of the pixels)). And with millions of these pixels displaying one colour, an image is made. Videos work the same way, but it is one image changing to a next, but due to light's faster-than-Usain-Bolt's speed, it manages to give an illusion that one object is moving on a single platform, however it is really a multiple of images moving at an lightning fast speed. Most well-sold Television Model Samsung UN55ES8000 Description: T.V. Type: LED - LCD Smart T.V.
Screen Size: 55inch
Display Format: 1080p
Refresh Rate: 240 Hz Dimensions: 48.4 in x 1.2 in x 28.4 in
Weight: 36 lbs With one of the highest reviews of as a television, the Samsung UN55ES8000 is one of the highest sold television models ever produced. Although it is impossible to calculate what the actual highest sold television model is due to the ever-rising amount of sales. The Samsung UN55ES8000 is a model that has the thickness of 1.2 inches making it one of the thinnest T.V.'s in comparison to their dimension ratio. Cultural Impacts on Society Today -with more and more newer and more advanced television sets and models coming out every month and with different models that fit wallets of all sizes, the television has became an archetype for wealth
-with the average person watching up to 22 hours of television per week
-6 multi-billion dollar multi media companies now have a monopoly over the news networks and advertisement networks in the United States
-10/11 North Americans have a television set Characteristics of the Advancement of the television -progressively thinner
-display quality highly improved
-performance rates (fps frames per second) greatly improved
-more interactive (invention of the smart T.V.)
-progressively larger surface area of display screens Therefore, over the last 30 years, in comparison to the T.V. , the computer has developed with many similar characteristics, such as more interactive purposes that enhance the possible usages for each electronic. Also in comparison with the development of the computer, I believe that the T.V. will be developed in a similar way due to their close and similar advancements in their own technology. With the ground-breaking advances in television technological advancements, the question we can ask ourselves is how will the television change in design, dimensions, format, layout, interaction, the forms it can change are endless, and still retain its main purpose as a television? These are some possible designs influenced from popular culture, mainly from science fiction movies. This is a possible design for the future television that is from the science fiction movie, Prometheus (2012). This shows a 3D holographic display screen that has highly detailed details that show an structure of a building. Although the main design of the T.V. has changed, it still retained the form to display an image or a video on a flat screen surface, although this display has a 3D image. Like the display screen from the movie, Prometheus, this 3D display T.V. is similar in display and model as the one from Prometheus, however it is shown that this T.V. from Avatar (2009) has the capabilities to show a holographic image moving at high speeds, therefore the possible future T.V. has retained its ability to show fast moving objects. This possible T.V. model, from the science fiction film, Total Recall (2012) has a sphere like 3D projection that are displayed from cameras and each display screen showing a different video play. Although the model has changed quite drastically, it has been mainly used for security purposely only for its ability to have "eyes everyone" Thank you for watching :)
