Richtige Fernseher haben Röhren!

In Brief: On this site you will find pictures and information about some of the electronic, electrical and electrotechnical 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 ! !

SHARP 70GS-61S YEAR 2002.

ENGINEER FRANK SHARP is gone ........... CRAZY ???????????????

NO because I'm crazy by original development ! ! ! ! :) :) :)

WHY post such thing of crappy plastic tellye at Obsolete Technology Tellye ! ???????????

Answer: Very simple because the SHARP 70GS-61S was technologically spoken the most high integrated digital circuitry developed for a CRT TUBE Television so it's pretty unique for this class of type.

 Pictures are awesome powerful, bright and crisp , colors are superb, it's digital but doesn't matter much.
These sets weren't expensive but they were discretely unreliable and very difficult to technologically understand and therefore to repair.

The SHARP 70GS-61S chassis GA-10 It's based on the VCT38XX DIGIT3000 from ITT/MICRONAS technology which was allowing to develop a complete digital television with one chip solution toghether with a one chip for digital audio processing.

Contemporary television processors are complicated and multi-functional. They control the television tuner, video processor, audio processor, deflection parameters, power supply, and video input select.
In a typical television system, television controllers are used. Television controllers receive input from the user and control other units in the television processor. Typically, the television controller is formed on an integrated circuit (IC). Additionally, a video processor is formed on another integrated chip. The video processor converts a video signal to pixel data, which is sent to the display such as a CRT display.
There are disadvantages of having the video processor and the television controller on two different integrated chips. Long wire communication on television chassis with high frequency and sharp signals can cause a lot of electromagnetic interference (EMI) and picture distortions, such as jitter. For this reason, it is desired to have an improved television processor architecture that prevent these problems.
Integrated circuits for use in television are known from, for example, Bolton M: "Empfänger-IC Für Digitales Fernsehen" Blektronik Industrie, vol. 25, no. 8, August 1994 (1994-08), pages 60, 62-63, Hing-Yip Tong: "A single chip micro-computer for A/V Monitor and TV receiver" IEEE Transactions on Consumer Electronics, IEEE Inc. New York, US, vol. 36, no. 4, 1 November 1990 (1990-11-01), pages 825-831, Gass W: "Architecture Trends of MPEG Decoders for Set-Top Box" Proceedings of the Spie, Spic, Bellingham, VA, US, vol. 3021, 12 February 1997 (1997-02-12), pages 162-169, Droitcourt J-L: "Integra architecture-anatomy of the interactive television set-top box, how it works, and what it means to the consumer" Broadcasting Convention, International (Conf. Publ. No. 428) Amsterdam, Netherlands 12-16 Sept. 1996, London, UK, IEE, UK, 12 September 1996 (1996-09-12), pages 272-276.

According to an aspect of the present invention there is provided an integrated circuit including a digital video processor for decoding a video signal and producing a pixel output, a digital television controller for receiving user input and controlling the television channel selection and one or both of an internal interface including registers for exchanging data between the digital video processor and the digital TV controller and a single dot clock generator arranged to receive reference information from the video processor and to produce a dot clock for both the video processor and the television controller.
According to another aspect of the present invention there is provided a method of processing video data comprising providing an integrated circuit including a digital video processor, a digital television controller, decoding a video signal and producing a pixel output in the digital video processor and receiving user input and controlling television channel selection in the digital television controller. The method further comprising one or both of further providing an internal interface including registers and exchanging data between the digital video processor and the digital television controller by storing the data in the registers and further providing a dot clock generator and producing a single dot clock in the dot clock generator from reference information supplied by the video processor, the dot clock being supplied to both the video processor and the television controller.
By putting the television controller and the video processor together on one integrated circuit chip, the length of the communication links between these two elements is reduced. This can remove some of the problems of the prior art. Additionally, by using a single dot clock generator for both the video processor and the television controller, the picture quality can be improved. Prior systems had a dot clock generator with its own phase locked loop (PLL) circuit on both the video processor IC and the television controller IC. It is impractical to send the clock signal between integrated circuits so each IC would reconstruct a dot clock from the horizontal and vertical sync. Since the television controller and the video processor can be synchronized by a single dot clock in the present system, this facilitates features such as picture-in-picture (PIP) and on-screen display (OSD).

Sharp Corporation ( Shāpu Kabushiki-gaisha) is a Japanese multinational corporation that designs and manufactures electronic products. Headquartered in Abeno-ku, Osaka, Japan, Sharp employs more than 55,580 people worldwide as of June 2011. The company was founded in September 1912. It takes its name from one of its founder's first inventions, the Ever-Sharp mechanical pencil, which was invented by Tokuji Hayakawa (早川 徳次) in 1915. Since then it has developed into one of the leading electronics companies in the world. It gained greater public awareness in the United Kingdom when it sponsored Manchester United F.C. from 1982 to 2000, which was a period of great success for the club.
Sharp took a controlling stake in Pioneer Corporation in 2007. On 25 June 2009, they agreed to form a joint venture with Pioneer on their optical business to be called "Pioneer Digital Design and Manufacturing Corporation".


In 1912, Tokuji Hayakawa (早川 徳次) founded a metal workshop in Tokyo. The first of his many inventions was a snap buckle named 'Tokubijo'. Another of his major inventions was the Ever-Sharp mechanical pencil in 1915, from which the Sharp Corporation took its name.
 After the pencil business was destroyed by the 1923 Great Kantō earthquake, the company relocated to Osaka and began designing the first generation of Japanese radio sets. These went on sale in 1925. In 1953 Sharp started producing television sets.
In 1964 Sharp developed the world's first transistor calculator, which was priced at Yen 535,000 (US$1,400). It took Sharp several years to develop the product as they had no experience in making computing devices at the time. Two years later, in 1966 Sharp introduced its first IC calculator using 145 Mitsubishi-made bipolar ICs, priced at Yen 350,000 (about US$1000). Its first LSI calculator was introduced in 1969. This was the first pocketable calculator priced at less than Yen 100,000 (less than US$300), and turned out to be a bestseller.
Other notable achievements include the first LCD calculator in 1973. LCD technology continues to be a key part of Sharp's product range, in both the component and consumer-appliance sides of the business. Sharp shared a close working relationship with Nintendo during the 1980s, and was granted licensing rights for the manufacture and development of the C1 NES TV (1983, later released in North America as the Sharp Nintendo Television), the Twin Famicom (1986), the Sharp Famicom Titler (1989), and the SF-1 SNES TV (1990). All of these units are considered collectors items on the secondary market.
Sharp's Mobile Communications Division created the world's first commercial camera phone, the J-SH04, in Japan in 1997. In 2008 Sharp collaborated with Emblaze Mobile on the Monolith, " ambitious project to design the ultimate holistic mobile device".

Shaping the future with innovations – this has been Sharp's motto ever since it was founded in 1912. Like almost no other company, Sharp has made major contributions to technological development.

Sharp's roots date back to the year 1912. On 15 th September 1912, Mr Tokuji Hayakawa establishes a small metalworking shop in Tokyo . At that time already, innovations are a major key to success. Sharp's founder is granted his first patent at the age of 18 – for the "Tokubijo", a belt buckle. The business starts with 3 employees and a capital of a mere 50 yen.


Through innovative products and a solid business strategy, the small business expands continuously. In 1915 Mr Hayakawa invents the world's first mechanical retractable pencil – the “Ever Sharp Pencil”. The company's name is derived from this invention and the "Ever Sharp Pencil" stands for Sharp as a symbol of innovative power and pioneering spirit.

Sharp introduces "Quattron Technology" on their LE820 Series. As first in the industry, Sharp’s leading-edge liquid crystal technology has produced the revolutionary Quattron panel. It employs a four-colour filter that adds yellow (Y) to the three primary colours of red, green and blue (RGB), expanding the colour gamut and faithfully rendering nearly all colours that can be discerned with the unaided human eye, especially golden yellow. Combined with Sharp’s X-Gen panel that applies UV2A technology, the displays deliver an unprecedented high-quality picture as well as reduce energy consumption with an LED backlight.

Strange how situations change. It seems not so long ago that Japan and its industries, particularly electronics, could do no wrong. They taught us how to make cars and TV sets properly. They invested heavily and came up with a seem- ingly endless stream of desirable, innova- tive products. Both outsiders and insiders could see no end to this success story. We were told, by more than one leading Japanese electronics industrialist, that the 21st century would be the Japanese one, when Japan became predominant industri- ally and culturally. For the last couple of years the situation has been somewhat different. Japan is still the world's second largest economy, but the previous confidence has gone. The econo- my has stalled, and doesn't look like getting going again for some time. Profitability has become appalling, and the talk now is all of restructuring and job losses. Sony has announced that some 17,000 jobs will be lost worldwide, ten per cent of its workforce, while fifteen of its seventy factories are to be closed. Mighty Hitachi, whose activities span a much wider field and whose turnover is equivalent to over two per cent of Japan's gross domestic product, has launched a detailed review of its businesses. 6,500 of its 66,000 parent company employees are to be made redun- dant by March next year. On a consolidat- ed basis Hitachi is Japan's largest employ- er, with 330,000 staff. Businesses are to be dropped or reorganised. The story from Mitsubishi Electric is similar: there is to be a "sweeping restructuring of its portfolio of businesses". In the UK, the latest manifes- tation of this is the closure of Mitsubishi's VCR plant at Livingston. 14,500 jobs will go (8,400 in Japan) at Mitsubishi Electric, nearly ten per cent of the workforce. Other manufacturers who have announced poor results and restructuring recently include NEC, Matsushita, Sharp and Toshiba. It's all a long way since the time when, it seemed, all the Japanese had to do was to get the product right and produce more and more of it. Some of this was foreseeable. Markets reach saturation point; new products are not always a runaway success; if investment in new plant is excessive you end up with too much capacity; and so on. Then there is the fact that Japan is not isolated from econom- ic problems elsewhere: no economy that is heavily dependent on exports can be. But there are also more specific Japanese prob- lems. The banking system is beset by non- performing loans that Japanese bankers are reluctant to write off. The bubble economy of a few years ago, when asset values rose to unrealistic levels, collapsed. This is part of the cause of the banking system difficul- ties. Then there is the practice of cross - ownership, with firms owning substantial stakes in each other. This can work nicely when everything is doing well: when reces- sion looms, it aggravates the problems. Japan's unemployment rate hit a new high of 4.8 per cent (3.39m) in March, part- ly because of the corporate sector restructur- ing. Japanese industrialists hope to improve their profitability in the second half of the year, and will be helped by improved condi- tions in SE Asia. But it will be hard going, particularly to improve domestic market conditions. The Japanese have always had a high propensity to save. This increases when the economic climate is poor, with unemployment a threat. Right now Japanese consumers are saving rather than buying. No one seems to know how to alter their behaviour. There is also a demographic problem: the Japanese population is ageing. Japanese interest rates are negligible. So borrowing is not a problem. But conversely all those savings are bringing in little income. In the Western world interest rate changes often have a considerable impact on the economy. This economic tool is not available when interest rates are negligible. The Japanese have been advised to get their banking system sorted out, but that's not the sort of thing that can be done overnight. Right now the best opportunity for Japan seems to be to export its way out of its dif- ficulties, something that shouldn't be too difficult once worldwide expansion has resumed. But the high value of the yen is a drawback. From the economic viewpoint it's an extremely interesting situation, one in which the laws of economics have little to offer. This could be because such laws are, basically, descriptive rather than prescrip- tive. In the real world you can't always ini- tiate economic activity through monetary or fiscal means. Some commentators have gone so far as to suggest that the Japanese government should spend, spend, spend and print money to kick-start the economy. This is a dangerous course that can go badly wrong. It has already been tried by the Japanese government to a limited extent, with similarly limited success. The one thing that we do know is that economies are not stable. Change is ever present in one form or another. The prob- lem lies in trying to control it. This is all rather humbling, and certainly something of a comeuppance for the rather arrogant Japanese industrialists who had talked about the century of Japanese economic hegemony.
