Marconi and television
Not only was Marconi involved with radar, but he also took an interest in the growing technology of television. He supported the EMI high definition (for the time) system.The Marconi company became heavily involved in television during 1934. The company worked with EMI Ltd in a venture to develop a high definition television system based using electronic scanning with images displayed on a cathode ray tube.This system was a rival to the mechanical system being developed by John Logie Baird, who had produced the first 30line images nine years earlier using a rotating disc. Baird had undertaken many tests using the system and had even sent images across the Atlantic. However the EMIMarconi system was far more flexible and could be developed to provide a much more effective system and it eventually won over the Baird one.
