Director of Sarnoff Library authors television history book

August 3, 2007

With the help of Greenwood Publishing, David Sarnoff Library director Alexander Magoun has published “Television: The Life Story of a Technology,” a volume in the Greenwood Technographies series that covers the history of television from 19th-century European conceptions of transmitting moving images electrically to the death of TV as a discrete system in the digital age. Magoun also discusses the changing face of television in the displays that people watch worldwide. The book highlights key events and people: the American engineers and entrepreneurs such as Vladimir Zworykin and David Sarnoff who ignited the television industry; the boom of programming choices in tandem with the Baby Boom Generation; the development of cable and satellite TV; the Asians who innovated American inventions in video recording and flat-panel displays; the use of TV in wartime; and the new worlds of digital video and HDTV.

The book is available at www.amazon.com.
