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 ! !

TOP TELLY TECH FAILS TO DRIVE NEW SETS SALES !! !

Vendors promoting the wrong features,


The technologies telly makers are promoting in a bid to persuade punters to replace existing TVs are failing to excite consumers.

LED backlight technology, internet connectivity and 3D are all being pitched up by vendors in the hope consumers will splash out on new sets.

3D is being pushed in particular, but according to research carried out by market watcher DisplaySearch, it's not what buyers want.

DisplaySearch asked consumers to rate the importance of 17 factors - size, thinness, just having something new, and so on -that might affect their decision to upgrade their existing TV set. In the UK, 3D, LED and internet connectivity all fell way below the average.

LED was the strongest driver, followed by internet access and, a very long way from the average, 3D.

"Even Japanese consumers, long considered to be early adopters, cited 3D as a relatively unimportant factor when deciding to buy a new TV," DisplaySearch's Global TV Replacement study says.

Factors such as lower power consumption, and thinner, lighter sets do appeal to punters, but while LED backlighting is an important factor in delivering these qualities, punters don't see it as such, DisplaySearch said.

The growth in global TV shipments slowed significantly in Q1, DisplaySearch said, falling to just a single percentage point up on Q1 2010.

Shipments fell sequentially too, which you'd expect from a quarter that follows the Christmas period, but the plunge was sharper than is usually the case, because Q4 2010 supply so outstripped demand, the researcher reckons.

During Q1, shipments of LCD and plasma tellies rose by single figures - not enough to cover a 32 per cent decline in CRT shipments.

CRTs, incidentally, still account for 13.2 per cent of world TV shipments, or did in Q1. Plasma only took 6.6 per cent. Apart from a few OLED screens and reverse-projection jobs, all the rest were LCDs.

3D sets accounted for just four per cent of Q1 telly shipments.

German TV Purchases Not Motivated by Cutting-Edge Features:

DisplaySearch Report Indicates 3D and Internet-TV Do Not Play a Major Role for German Consumers When Upgrading Their TVs:

Results of the recently published DisplaySearch Global TV Replacement Study suggest that German consumers barely show an interest in new technologies like 3D or Internet-TV, despite record-setting sales of new flat screen displays. Although the increase of TV sales set a new record last year with 24.4% growth, new technologies did not seem to be a driver for TV replacements. Less than 1% of interviewees in the study listed 3D as a reason for their TV upgrade and barely 1% said Internet-TV played a major role. Not surprisingly, these percentages were higher in East Asia: 6% of Indonesian buyers said 3D was one of their main reasons for a TV upgrade, and for 5% of urban Chinese buyers, Internet was an important factor.

“While it is valuable to know how often people are upgrading or adding new TVs to the home, it’s also important to understand why,” noted Paul Gray, Director of European TV Research at DisplaySearch. “Some of the findings from this study show that advanced features are not strong drivers of new TV purchases compared to fundamentals like trading up in size or getting a flat panel TV.”


I'M HAPPY...........CRT FOREVER !!!!!!!!!!!!
