Abstract:

The progress of tv broadcasting and tv technology in the Soviet Union are briefly reviewed. Soviet claims for early inventions related to tv techniques are laid. The central tv black-and-white broadcast program is transmitted from Moscow to 114 cities and there rediffused over most of the SSSR territory. There were 3 and 120 tv program centers and 450000 and 20 million tv sets in 1954 and 1966, respectively. The color tv French CEKAM system is being introduced 1967. A single-beam color-lined-screen picture tube is being developed, as are a stereo-color tv system and a color facsimile transmission system the latter was tested on a Moscow-Leningrad telephone channel. An underground tv-camera equipment 192-mm diameter, 2000-mm long was constructed for observing geological strata, artificial reservoirs, etc. through boreholes. Soviet cosmic vehicles Vostok-3, Vostok-4, Voskhod-2 were equipped with Soviet-made tv systems. A simple optico-mechanical tv-system of the Luna-9 station transmitted 6000 lines in 100 minutes with a definition of 500 elements per line 1966. The Molniya-1 Soviet communication satellite tested for tv transmission from Moscow to Vladivostok in 1965 made two revolutions per day and had a useful transmission time about 8 hours per day.
