Radio Corp. of Long Island City,
N. Y., predicted at a news con
ference that television pictures
with depth would come within
five years after the arrival of color,
but unlike the old familiar stereo
scope, you wouldn’t have to view
the pictures through spelial
glasses or lenses to get the effect
of depth.
The time for the advent of
color has been cut in half by the
development of a single tri-color
picture tube by the Radio Corp
of America, said Mr. Andrea who
is in his 13th year as a radio
and video manufacturer.
He spoke at a showing introduc
ing the company’s new line of
television sets priced from $249.95
for a table model with a viewing
tube 12'/2 inches across to a 19
inch console de luxe combination
with radio and three-speed
phonograph for $795. Although
the company makes a higher
priced line, the prices represented
reductions of up to $100 from pre
vious models.
