RCA Presentation: Television

Radio Corporation of America

(USA 1939, 9 min)

A promotional film introducing television to the American public, probably coordinated with the rollout of scheduled broadcasting at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. The film explains the technical nature of the camera and transmission systems, and shows scenes of television production at the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) studios at Rockefeller Center, using equipment manufactured by NBC’s corporate parent RCA.
