The AUTOVOX JOLLY-2 is a 12 inches B/W portable tellye with VHF and UHF channels.
- First AUTOVOX B/W portable television based completely on semiconductors.
The VHF AND UHF tuning is performed via large disk like knob in the like as in pocket radios, with tuning skala round disk designed and tuning circuits has a 2 potentiometers tuning system which use voltage controlled capacitances such as varactor diodes as the frequency determining elements, advantages are achieved in automatic frequency control circuitry for a television receiver which includes frequency discriminator means and gating means.
AUTOVOX SpA HISTORY
Giordano Bruno Verdesi founded in Rome in 1933 the Industry Italian Radio engineering, IRI, for the production of professional apparates, but this had its single development in 1945 with the war reconstruction post.
Previewing a strong development of the motorization, with Carlo Daroda, it comes up the Autovox SpA, with the specialization car radio production.
In 1953 the company is upgraded and constructed on the way Pays wages to Rome, the new plant for the production of television sets, antennas, car radio, transistor radio receivers, beyond a production of radiosondes and professional apparatuses for the aeronautical meteorology.
With the planning of the first car radio in the world, the leggendaria Bikini, in 1942 it begins a long season of successes like with the car radio Piper, the blue line with the first tuning electronic, the Kanguro the first car extractable stereo, mythical the Shuttle and Challenger the first car radio with the frequency synthesis, represents for Autovox, the flag stones in the development of new technologies, beyond to a complete range of television set (in black and white) of great reliability and from the pretty aesthetic.
Successively it realizes first in Europe, a color television set with fully transistorized chassis. (CLICK HERE TO SEE).
