Richtige Fernseher haben Röhren!

In Brief: On this site you will find pictures and information about some of the electronic, electrical and electrotechnical Obsolete technology relics that the Frank Sharp Private museum has accumulated over the years .
Premise: There are lots of vintage electrical and electronic items that have not survived well or even completely disappeared and forgotten.

Or are not being collected nowadays in proportion to their significance or prevalence in their heyday, this is bad and the main part of the death land. The heavy, ugly sarcophagus; models with few endearing qualities, devices that have some over-riding disadvantage to ownership such as heavy weight,toxicity or inflated value when dismantled, tend to be under-represented by all but the most comprehensive collections and museums. They get relegated to the bottom of the wants list, derided as 'more trouble than they are worth', or just forgotten entirely. As a result, I started to notice gaps in the current representation of the history of electronic and electrical technology to the interested member of the public.

Following this idea around a bit, convinced me that a collection of the peculiar alone could not hope to survive on its own merits, but a museum that gave equal display space to the popular and the unpopular, would bring things to the attention of the average person that he has previously passed by or been shielded from. It's a matter of culture. From this, the Obsolete Technology Tellye Web Museum concept developed and all my other things too. It's an open platform for all electrical Electronic TV technology to have its few, but NOT last, moments of fame in a working, hand-on environment. We'll never own Colossus or Faraday's first transformer, but I can show things that you can't see at the Science Museum, and let you play with things that the Smithsonian can't allow people to touch, because my remit is different.

There was a society once that was the polar opposite of our disposable, junk society. A whole nation was built on the idea of placing quality before quantity in all things. The goal was not “more and newer,” but “better and higher" .This attitude was reflected not only in the manufacturing of material goods, but also in the realms of art and architecture, as well as in the social fabric of everyday life. The goal was for each new cohort of children to stand on a higher level than the preceding cohort: they were to be healthier, stronger, more intelligent, and more vibrant in every way.

The society that prioritized human, social and material quality is a Winner. Truly, it is the high point of all Western civilization. Consequently, its defeat meant the defeat of civilization itself.

Today, the West is headed for the abyss. For the ultimate fate of our disposable society is for that society itself to be disposed of. And this will happen sooner, rather than later.

OLD, but ORIGINAL, Well made, Funny, Not remotely controlled............. and not Made in CHINA.

Every CRT Television saved let revive knowledge, thoughts, moments of the past life which will never return again.........

Many contemporary "televisions" (more correctly named as displays) would not have this level of staying power, many would ware out or require major services within just five years or less and of course, there is that perennial bug bear of planned obsolescence where components are deliberately designed to fail and, or manufactured with limited edition specificities..... and without considering........picture......sound........quality........
..............The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of todays funny gadgets low price has faded from memory........ . . . . . .....
Don't forget the past, the end of the world is upon us! Pretty soon it will all turn to dust!

Have big FUN ! !

PHILIPS 20CT4426 /08Z SEGANTINI YEAR 1983.
















The PHILIPS  20CT4426 /08Z  SEGANTINI is a 20 Inches Color television with 89 Programs and 99 Channel TRD4 Tuning system.
Ofcourse it has remote for all functions.

Was the model series featuring the PHILIPS CHASSIS KT4.

- TRD (Tuning Remote Digital) RC5 system synthesizer tuning search system which allows perfect automatic search and automatic AFT tuning of each channel for all bands and special channels VHF + S + UHF.
Channel selection is controlled by a frequency synthesizer a sweep of available channels is made by a channel selecting arrangement and this sweep is arranged to be stopped when a signal is received. When the sweeping is stopped a fine tuning arrangement takes control to respond to the frequency of the received signal and to compensate for any drift of that signal, a frequency synthesizer controlled channel selection means which includes a fine tuning arrangement; means for initiating a sweep of available channels by the channel selection means; means for stopping the sweep on reception of a signal and means, operable on cessation of sweeping and responsive to the frequency of the signal, and arranged to control the fine tuning arrangement to compensate for frequency drift of the signal.

The Tuning in the Philips TRD IV:

In the good old days when all that was needed to tune in a colour set was a little patience and short finger nails 
life was nice and easy. Just twiddle until something appeared on the screen. Not so now!
 Philips in 1984 have revolutionised the idea of tuning your shiny new one eyed monster to give any amount of TV channels. The TRD IV remote control system is, as the Americans would say, a whole new ball game. It was first introduced with the K35 chassis and has since been used with various versions of the KT4 and K40 chassis. 
Tuning one of these sets in is probably more awesome than any field fault you care to mention. 
 In actual table display toys it become clear that the result is that one of your field engineers has to make a call. It's true to say that they'd rather spend the afternoon at the dentist. 
The first thing that's necessary in the world of Philips is an understanding of symbols. Philips seem to need these in order to have a series of blips and squiggles that will fit into their neatly hidden control flaps. 
Fig. 1 provides a guide. There now follows a beginner's guide to tuning. 

Method A:
 Let's start at the beginning. Switch the receiver on and, using what Philips call search method A, press the button marked c/p. 
The red LED display will show 01. 
Press the same button again and the display will change to 21, 69 or any number in between. Press the button marked with the symbol for open memory and the display will start to flash. What have we achieved so far? We've chosen programme number one, we've switched over to the channel scale 21-69, I've opened the memory and we now want to lock the BBC -1 channel to the memory's programme one position. 
Press the search tuning button and a vertical yellow bar should appear on the left-hand side of the screen and slowly edge its way across to the right-hand side. 
As it travels, so the tuning moves up the band, from channel 21 to channel 69. In our case the local channels are (UK Based Broadcastings) 40 BBC- 2, 43 ITV, 46 BBC -1 and 50 Channel 4 (Sutton Coldfield). So the first local channel we come to is 40. 
At this point the set will lock to this channel as programme one, the yellow line will disappear and the sound will be heard for the first time (the sound is muted until an aerial supplied signal is received). But we wanted to lock BBC -1 as programme one. Instead we've got BBC -2 as this program number.
No problem! Simply press search tuning again and the display will move up to the next local channel, 43 in our case. Press it a third time and it will move up to the next channel, our BBC -1 channel 46. When you get there, push the store button (the one with the diamond symbol) and the memory will close, with BBC -1 locked as programme number one. The display will cease to flash. To check that this is so, press the c/p button once to see that the programme is number one, displayed as 01, and press again to see 46 displayed.
 With method A the selected programme number appears first and the channel that's locked to it afterwards.

 Method B:
 reverses this  the channel selected must appear first, then the programme number. Method B Method B, the "alternative method, direct channel selection", is no harder to follow.
 Let's assume this time that you're called to tune in the customer's VCR- we are assuming that the input to the set is at u.h.f. Switch on the VCR's test signal, then turn your atten- tion back to the TV set's control panel.
 Press the c/p button for a channel figure between 21 and 69 on the LED display. Now with most VCRs the u.h.f. output is at around channels 36-39. Press the search tuning button and watch as the yellow line moves across to the right-hand side of the screen and the figures in the displaymove up towards 36-39. When the VCR's signal is reached the test signal will appear on the screen, the yellow line will disappear and you can choose whichprogramme number to use. Say 00 as recommended by Philips. 
Press the c/p button once again and the display will change to a flashing number between 00 and 89 (49 on some models). Get the display to 00 by using the buttons marked c/p - and +. 
Then press the store button (diamond symbol). You've now locked the VCR's output as programme 00. If the customer decides to connect his VCR via the SCART socket, simply select 00, set the changeover switch to AV and the VCR's video and audio signals will be taken via the SCART plug/socket. 
No tuning is required. Combining a Philips VCR and CTV has the advantage that you can control both via a single remote control unit.

Most of the later Philips slim -line handsets have the necessary buttons for play, record, fast wind in either direction and of course VCR channel change. One of the sets we handle is the 20CT4426 . This is not just your average 22in. CTV. Apart from the automatic tuning covered above it has teletext, a 48 -button handset, a stereo sound decoder, four loudspeakers, spatial (ex- tended) sound effect, second language reception, a jack socket for private listening with the main speakers on or off and a whole range of audio plugs/sockets at the rear. All in all quite a set - or more a way of life!

This set has even an auto diagnose system for chassis level fault servicing capability.
If a Fault occurs a code will be displayed on the program/channel led display. Such code is an address feature to send servicing properly a chassis zone referring  a possible group of components generating that fault.

A self-diagnosing apparatus and a method for a Television apparatus which are capable of detecting errors of the apparatus, and classifying the errors for thus more effectively correcting the errors. The apparatus includes an operation state detection unit for detecting an operation state of a part of the apparatus, a self-diagnosing unit for checking an erroneous part based on an output signal from the operation state detection unit and checking a using state of a display for displaying an information which is used for correcting the error and externally transmitting the information. The conventional PHILIPS self-diagnosing content display apparatus for a TV includes a microcomputer  for controlling the entire operation of an apparatus and controlling a self-diagnosing content display operation, this is obtained with a preprogrammed microcomputer.The controller employs a perceptable indicator, usually a visual display. This indicator normally provides the TV user with information useful in operating the appliance when it is functioning properly. For example,program and channels, on the other hand, the visual display performs the additional function of providing the results of internally programmed diagnostic test performed in background in a continuous cycle comprising the normal functions tasks. The controller will determine the suspected point of failure and display a unique code in association therewith in the visual display. This code can be interpreted to determine the exact circuit that failed and to eliminate much of the time consumption random trouble shooting of controls entails. The microprocessor checks its major internal and input and output circuits for proper computation through key voltages across the chassis via pheriperals and I2IC Bus. If the program senses a discrepancy in the computation or recordation of data, a code corresponding to the error detected appears in the visual display panel. This code denotes the location of the failure in the control circuitry and or in specific groups or zones of the main chassis. Through the use of the self-diagnostic electronic controller, the system determines itself whether it is trouble free or not, like testing internal data busto determine if the microcomputer is faulty itself. Through the use of the self-diagnostic electronic controller, the system determines itself whether it is trouble free or not. It then becomes unnecessary for a service technican to change out a control board and substitute a replacement board to determine if the original control board is defective, unless the self diagnostic control determines that this should be done.
Such list of codes was available on the chassis  service manual.

PHILIPS INTRODUCED SURFACE MOUNTING TECHNOLOGY TICK FILM ON TRD UNIT: Philips have initiated a major campaign to increase awareness of the advantages of surface mounting component technology in the European's electronics industry. Advantages include: increased component packing density (board sizes reduced by 35-50 per cent, with a packing density of six surface mounted devices per square cm instead of three components in conventional encapsulations); assembly costs reduced by as much as 50 per cent; much better h.f. performance; and much improved reliability (abolition of radial/axial leads eliminates failures caused by breaking or cracking when bending or cropping). In addition to a wide range of active and passive components for surface mounting, Philips are offering the Philips Elcoma range of automatic placement machines - their first ever commercial foray into the production equipment market. At the time in 1984 the cost of components in surface mounting packs is higher than those with conventional leads - prices are expected to equalise when production levels become similar. There are however savings in board material, factory space and so on. When it comes to a complex assembly such as a TV chassis, severe design constraints are imposed by the use of surface mounting due to the limited number of different items the placement equipment can handle. As a result, surface mounting in TV sets is likely to be encountered first in sub -assemblies such as teletext decoders, then possibly in hybrid surface mounting/ component insertion panels. Philips believed that the future lies very much with surface mounting, and express concern that its growing use in Japan and the USA could leave the European electronics industry at a considerable disadvantage unless substantial investment in the new technology started then............Indeed.............

Teletext option was awailable on request with a special computer controlled teletex unit to fit in.



Koninklijke Philips Electronics N.V. (Royal Philips Electronics Inc.), most commonly known as Philips, (Euronext: PHIA, NYSE: PHG) is a multinational Dutch electronics corporation.

Philips is one of the largest electronics companies in the world. In 2009, its sales were €23.18 billion. The company employs 115,924 people in more than 60 countries.

Philips is organized in a number of sectors: Philips Consumer Lifestyles (formerly Philips Consumer Electronics and Philips Domestic Appliances and Personal Care), Philips Lighting and Philips Healthcare (formerly Philips Medical Systems).
The company was founded in 1891 by Gerard Philips, a maternal cousin of Karl Marx, in Eindhoven, Netherlands. Its first products were light bulbs and other electro-technical equipment. Its first factory survives as a museum devoted to light sculpture. In the 1920s, the company started to manufacture other products, such as vacuum tubes (also known worldwide as 'valves'), In 1927 they acquired the British electronic valve manufacturers Mullard and in 1932 the German tube manufacturer Valvo, both of which became subsidiaries. In 1939 they introduced their electric razor, the Philishave (marketed in the USA using the Norelco brand name).
Philips was also instrumental in the revival of the Stirling engine.

As a chip maker, Philips Semiconductors was among the Worldwide Top 20 Semiconductor Sales Leaders.

In December 2005 Philips announced its intention to make the Semiconductor Division into a separate legal entity. This process of "disentanglement" was completed on 1 October 2006.

On 2 August 2006, Philips completed an agreement to sell a controlling 80.1% stake in Philips Semiconductors to a consortium of private equity investors consisting of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. (KKR), Silver Lake Partners and AlpInvest Partners. The sale completed a process, which began December 2005, with its decision to create a separate legal entity for Semiconductors and to pursue all strategic options. Six weeks before, ahead of its online dialogue, through a letter to 8,000 of Philips managers, it was announced that they were speeding up the transformation of Semiconductors into a stand-alone entity with majority ownership by a third party. It was stated then that "this is much more than just a transaction: it is probably the most significant milestone on a long journey of change for Philips and the beginning of a new chapter for everyone – especially those involved with Semiconductors".

In its more than 115 year history, this counts as a big step that is definitely changing the profile of the company. Philips was one of few companies that successfully made the transition from the electrical world of the 19th century into the electronic age, starting its semiconductor activity in 1953 and building it into a global top 10 player in its industry. As such, Semiconductors was at the heart of many innovations in Philips over the past 50 years.

Agreeing to start a process that would ultimately lead to the decision to sell the Semiconductor Division therefore was one of the toughest decisions that the Board of Management ever had to make.

On 21 August 2006, Bain Capital and Apax Partners announced that they had signed definitive commitments to join the expanded consortium headed by KKR that is to acquire the controlling stake in the Semiconductors Division.

On 1 September 2006, it was announced in Berlin that the name of the new semiconductor company founded by Philips is NXP Semiconductors.

Coinciding with the sale of the Semiconductor Division, Philips also announced that they would drop the word 'Electronics' from the company name, thus becoming simply Koninklijke Philips N.V. (Royal Philips N.V.).


PHILIPS FOUNDATION:

The foundations of Philips were laid in 1891 when Anton and Gerard Philips established Philips & Co. in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. The company begun manufacturing carbon-filament lamps and by the turn of the century, had become one of the largest producers in Europe. Stimulated by the industrial revolution in Europe, Philips’ first research laboratory started introducing its first innovations in the x-ray and radio technology. Over the years, the list of inventions has only been growing to include many breakthroughs that have continued to enrich people’s everyday lives.



In the early years of Philips &; Co., the representation of the company name took many forms: one was an emblem formed by the initial letters of Philips ; Co., and another was the word Philips printed on the glass of metal filament lamps.



One of the very first campaigns was launched in 1898 when Anton Philips used a range of postcards showing the Dutch national costumes as marketing tools. Each letter of the word Philips was printed in a row of light bulbs as at the top of every card. In the late 1920s, the Philips name began to take on the form that we recognize today.



The now familiar Philips waves and stars first appeared in 1926 on the packaging of miniwatt radio valves, as well as on the Philigraph, an early sound recording device. The waves symbolized radio waves, while the stars represented the ether of the evening sky through which the radio waves would travel.



In 1930 it was the first time that the four stars flanking the three waves were placed together in a circle. After that, the stars and waves started appearing on radios and gramophones, featuring this circle as part of their design. Gradually the use of the circle emblem was then extended to advertising materials and other products.



At this time Philips’ business activities were expanding rapidly and the company wanted to find a trademark that would uniquely represent Philips, but one that would also avoid legal problems with the owners of other well-known circular emblems. This wish resulted in the combination of the Philips circle and the wordmark within the shield emblem.



In 1938, the Philips shield made its first appearance. Although modified over the years, the basic design has remained constant ever since and, together with the wordmark, gives Philips the distinctive identity that is still embraced today.

The first steps of CRT production by Philips started in the thirties with the Deutsche Philips Electro-Spezial gesellschaft in Germany and the Philips NatLab (Physics laboratory) in Holland. After the introduction of television in Europe, just after WWII there was a growing demand of television sets and oscilloscope equipment. Philips in Holland was ambitious and started experimental television in 1948. Philips wanted to be the biggest on this market. From 1948 there was a small Philips production of television and oscilloscope tubes in the town of Eindhoven which soon developed in mass production. In 1976 a part of the Philips CRT production went to the town of Heerlen and produced its 500.000'th tube in 1986. In 1994 the company in Heerlen changed from Philips into CRT-Heerlen B.V. specialized in the production of small monochrome CRT's for the professional market and reached 1.000.000 produced tubes in 1996. In this stage the company was able to produce very complicated tubes like storage CRT's.
In 2001 the company merged into Professional Display Systems, PDS worked on LCD and Plasma technology but went bankrupt in 2009. The employees managed a start through as Cathode Ray Technology which now in 2012 has to close it's doors due to the lack of sales in a stressed market. Their main production was small CRT's for oscilloscope, radar and large medical use (X-ray displays). New experimental developments were small Electron Microscopy, 3D-TV displays, X-Ray purposes and Cathode Ray Lithography for wafer production. Unfortunately the time gap to develop these new products was too big.


28 of September 2012, Cathode Ray Technology (the Netherlands), the last Cathode Ray Tube factory in Europe closed. Ironically the company never experienced so much publicity as now, all of the media brought the news in Holland about the closure. In fact this means the end of mass production 115 years after Ferdinand Braun his invention. The rapid introduction and acceptation of LCD and Plasma displays was responsible for a drastic decrease in sales. Despite the replacement market for the next couple of years in the industrial, medical and avionics sector.
The numbers are small and the last few CRT producers worldwide are in heavy competition.

Gerard Philips:

Gerard Leonard Frederik Philips (October 9, 1858, in Zaltbommel – January 27, 1942, in The Hague, Netherlands) was a Dutch industrialist, co-founder (with his father Frederik Philips) of the Philips Company as a family business in 1891. Gerard and his younger brother Anton Philips changed the business to a corporation by founding in 1912 the NV Philips' Gloeilampenfabrieken. As the first CEO of the Philips corporation, Gerard laid with Anton the base for the later Philips multinational.



Early life and education

Gerard was the first son of Benjamin Frederik David Philips (1 December 1830 – 12 June 1900) and Maria Heyligers (1836 – 1921). His father was active in the tobacco business and a banker at Zaltbommel in the Netherlands; he was a first cousin of Karl Marx.



Career

Gerard Philips became interested in electronics and engineering. Frederik was the financier for Gerard's purchase of the old factory building in Eindhoven where he established the first factory in 1891. They operated the Philips Company as a family business for more than a decade.



Marriage and family

On March 19, 1896 Philips married Johanna van der Willigen (30 September 1862 – 1942). They had no children.

Gerard was an uncle of Frits Philips, whom he and his brother brought into the business. Later they brought in his brother's grandson, Franz Otten.


Gerard and his brother Anton supported education and social programs in Eindhoven, including the Philips Sport Vereniging (Philips Sports Association), which they founded. From it the professional football (soccer) department developed into the independent Philips Sport Vereniging N.V.



Anton Philips:

Anton Frederik Philips (March 14, 1874, Zaltbommel, Gelderland – October 7, 1951, Eindhoven) co-founded Royal Philips Electronics N.V. in 1912 with his older brother Gerard Philips in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. He served as CEO of the company from 1922 to 1939.



Early life and education

Anton was born to Maria Heyligers (1836 – 1921) and Benjamin Frederik David Philips (December 1, 1830 – June 12, 1900). His father was active in the tobacco business and a banker at Zaltbommel in the Netherlands. (He was a first cousin to Karl Marx.) Anton's brother Gerard was 16 years older.



Career

In May 1891 the father Frederik was the financier and, with his son Gerard Philips, co-founder of the Philips Company as a family business. In 1912 Anton joined the firm, which they named Royal Philips Electronics N.V.

During World War I, Anton Philips managed to increase sales by taking advantage of a boycott of German goods in several countries. He provided the markets with alternative products.

Anton (and his brother Gerard) are remembered as being civic-minded. In Eindhoven they supported education and social programs and facilities, such as the soccer department of the Philips Sports Association as the best-known example.

Anton Philips brought his son Frits Philips and grandson Franz Otten into the company in their times. Anton took the young Franz Otten with him and other family members to escape the Netherlands just before the Nazi Occupation during World War II; they went to the United States. They returned after the war.

His son Frits Philips chose to stay and manage the company during the occupation; he survived several months at the concentration camp of Vught after his workers went on strike. He saved the lives of 382 Jews by claiming them as indispensable to his factory, and thus helped them evade Nazi roundups and deportation to concentration camps.

Philips died in Eindhoven in 1951.



Marriage and family

Philips married Anne Henriëtte Elisabeth Maria de Jongh (Amersfoort, May 30, 1878 – Eindhoven, March 7, 1970). They had the following children:

* Anna Elisabeth Cornelia Philips (June 19, 1899 – ?), married in 1925 to Pieter Franciscus Sylvester Otten (1895 – 1969), and had:
o Diek Otten
o Franz Otten (b. c. 1928 - d. 1967), manager in the Dutch electronics company Philips
* Frederik Jacques Philips (1905-2005)
* Henriëtte Anna Philips (Eindhoven, October 26, 1906 – ?), married firstly to A. Knappert (d. 1932), without issue; married secondly to G. Jonkheer Sandberg (d. September 5, 1935), without issue; and married thirdly in New York City, New York, on September 29, 1938 to Jonkheer Gerrit van Riemsdijk (Aerdenhout, January 10, 1911 – Eindhoven, November 8, 2005). They had the following children:
o ..., Jonkheerin Gerrit van Riemsdijk (b. Waalre, October 2, 1939), married at Waalre on February 17, 1968 to Johannes Jasper Tuijt (b. Atjeh, Koeta Radja, March 10, 1930), son of Jacobus Tuijt and wife Hedwig Jager, without issue

A comment...........of a 1996 reality ..................
Philips, which seems to be a perennial walking wounded case. The company had appeared to be on the mend after a worldwide cost- cutting programme which was started five years ago when Jan Timmer took over as chairman.
 But, following a sharp profits fall, with the company's first quarterly loss since 1992, a further shake up is being undertaken.
The difficulty is that the company operates in a mature market, in which prices are falling at an annual rate of six per cent. Manufacturers are competing by cutting costs to gain a larger share of static demand. It's not a situation in which any firm that does its own manufacturing can achieve much. Philips' latest plan involves an overall loss of 6,000 jobs in its consumer electronics business, with far greater reliance placed on a group of external suppliers which are referred to as "a cluster of dedicated subcontractors".

This is an approach that was pioneered many years ago by major Japanese manufacturers. Rather than make everything yourself, you rely on subcontractors who, in return, rely on you for their main source of work. It is hardly a cosy arrangement: the whole point seems to be that the major fain can exert pressure on its subcontractors, thereby - in theory - achieving optimum efficiency and cost-effectiveness. What happens when lower and lower prices are demanded for subcontracted work is not made clear.

The whole edifice could collapse. However that might be, this is the course on which Philips has now embarked. The company is also to carry out distribution, sales and marketing on a regional rather than a national basis, and has said that it will not support Grundig's losses after this year.

But Philips' chief financial officer Dudley Eustace has said that it has "no intention of abandoning the television and audio business". One has to assume that the subcontracting will also be done on an international basis, as major Japanese firms have had to do. There is a sense of déjà vu about this, though one wishes Philips well - it is still one of the major contributors to research and development in our industry.

Toshiba, which has also just appointed a new top man, Taizo Nishimoro, provides an interesting contrast. Mr Nishimoro thinks that the western emphasis on sales and marketing rather than engineering is the way to go. So the whole industry seems to be moving full circle. Taizo Nishimoro has become the first non engineering president of Toshiba. Where the company cannot compete effectively on its own, he intends to seek international alliances or go for closures. He put it as follows. "The technology and the businesses we are engaged in are getting more complex.
 In these circumstances, if we try to do everything ourselves we are making a mistake." Here's how Minoru Makihara, who became head of Mitsubishi Corporation four years ago, sees it. "Technologies are now moving so fast that it is impossible for the top manager to know all the details. 
Companies are now looking for generalists who can understand broad changes, delegate and provide leadership." Corporate change indeed amongst our oriental colleagues. Major firms the world over are facing similar problems and having to adopt similar policies.
In a mature market such as consumer electronics, you have to rely on marketing to squeeze the last little bit of advantage from such developments as Dolby sound and other added value features. The consumer electronics industry has been hoping that the digital video disc would come to its aid and get sales and profits moving ahead.
The DVD was due to be released in Sept 1996 , but we are unlikely to hear much more about it yet awhile. There's no problem with the technology: the difficulty is with licensing and software. There is obviously no point in launching it without adequate software support. But the movie companies, which control most of the required supply of software, are concerned that a recordable version of the disc, due in a couple of years' time, would be a gift to pirates worldwide. Concessions have been made by the electronics industry, in particular that different disc formats should be used in different parts of the world. But a curious problem has arisen.
 The other main use of the DVD is as a ROM in computer systems. For this application flexible copying facilities are a major requirement. But the movie companies are unwilling to agree to this. At present the situation is deadlocked and the great hope of an autumn launch, all important for sales, has had to be postponed. Next year maybe? It's a great pity, since the DVD has much to offer.
There's a lot of sad news on the retail side as well. Colorvision has been placed in administrative receivership in 1996 , with a threat to 800 jobs at its 76 stores, while the Rumbelows shops that were taken over by computer retailer Escom have suffered a similar fate. The receivers have closed down the UK chain with the loss of 850 jobs at some 150 stores. Nothing seems to be going right just now.
