Abstract:

On 28 May at the Moscow Television Center there was a demonstration of reception of color TV. It was transmitted from Paris via the Soviet satellite Molniya-1. This was the result of an agreement concluded between France and the USSR in March 1965 for cooperation in the joint development of a system for transmission of color television. A test run of the satellite system was made in November 1965 with transmission of a program from Moscow to Paris. On 28 May the TV images were transmitted along a cable to a large antenna situated outside Paris and then to the Soviet satellite, which carries a powerful 40-W transmitter. The transmission was received over a wide area. It was received near Moscow and transmitted by land line to the Moscow Television Center. The color image was shown in an auditorium, automatically magnetically recorded and fed to a television transmitter. Soon it will be feasible to have regular black-and-white and color TV transmission between the USSR and France via the Molniya satellite. The sound accompaniment for the program was fed along a land cable. For regular transmissions it will be necessary to arrange simultaneous transmission of sound and picture via the satellite as is now done for black and white transmission. Author
