Names you should know when you talk about Television

 

Constantin Perskyi

 

Ever wondered who coined the term “television?” Well, now you know. Constantin Perskyi was a Russian scientist who came up with the name in 1900 at the 1st International Congress of Electricity.

 

John Logie Baird

 

The first man ever to demonstrate practical image amplification using the Nipkow disk was John Logie Baird. He was a Scottish engineer with a particular fascination with the subject.

 

Kenjiro Takayanagi

 

Kenjiro Takayanagi was the first man ever to demonstrate an electric television. He did that in Japan during 1926. His name has gone down in history because many scientists did not believe it could be done at the time. Sadly, his work was hindered by the start of the second world war. However, the UK and US had gained access to the technology by that time.

 

Those three names should be considered the most important in the history of TV. All of those people have informative Wikipedia pages, and so you can perform more research at your leisure. Alternatively, you can find out more from the infographic.
