Restoring a Vintage Color Television Set

EARLY COLOR ENGINEERS

Charles E. Small, P.E.

We are fortunate to have one of the designers of early color television as a contributor to this site. Charles Small holds two patients for circuitry developed for very early commercial RCA color television sets. Both are in the convergence section. Charlie has contributed this interesting, insider information concerning his activities lo those many years ago.

Much to my disappointment this never went into production. Unfortunately, the magnetic pellet caused blooming of the red spot size, which decreased the resolution of the red gun at high brightness. When I discovered it, I was obligated to report it and we went to a different design for D.C. convergence.
