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 ! !

GERMAN TV MAKER LOEWE FILES FOR INSOLVENCY PROTECTION.

German TV set manufacturer Loewe is seeking protection from its creditors as it is aiming to restructure its business. The top-of-the-range brand has been struggling for months and is looking for a strategic investor.






Loewe's executive board had decided to file for creditor protection as it was attempting to implement a restructuring program and a new corporate strategy more quickly, the German luxury TV maker announced Tuesday.

The company had filed for the protective proceedings with the local court in Coburg, allowing it to restru
cture its business under its own administration on the basis of a sustainable and forward-looking concept, Loewe said in a statement.The proceedings were scheduled to last for three months in which the company would be protected from enforcement by creditors while remaining capable of trading, it added.

T
he German luxury TV set maker saw sales plummet 35 percent to 43.5 million euros ($56.9 million) in the first quarter of 2013, squeezed by more competitive Asian rivals Samsung and Panasonic. The loss came in spite of massive restructuring in the past few years in which one out of five workers had lost their jobs.

Confidence in the high-end brand has been shaken further as the company announced earlier this year that half of its basic capital had been used up and that it would seek a capital increase.

The executive board was seeking strategic partners for the company and hoped to present first results at a shareholders meeting on July 31, Loewe also said.

Loewe shares, which are listed in the German smaller cap stock market, plummeted 27 percent on Tuesday.


IN GERMAN:

TV Loewe: Loewe kämpft gegen die Insolvenz.
Gut gegangen ist bei Loewe, einem der drei letzten verbliebenen TV-Gerätehersteller Deutschlands schon lange nichts mehr. Aber genau das braucht der Konzern jetzt.

Eine Überraschung war es nicht, nicht nach der Talfahrt der letzten Jahre und Hiobsbotschaften in Serie. Seit Ende Mai ist die Hälfte des Grundkapitals beim fränkischen Traditionsunternehmen Loewe von Dauerverlusten aufgefressen, ließ Konzernchef Matthias Harsch mitteilen. Rechtlich sind die Kronacher deshalb nun zur Einberufung einer Hauptversammlung verpflichtet. Sie findet am 31. Juli in Berlin statt. Wenn alles gut geht, wird dort ein Rettungsplan präsentiert. Aber gut gegangen ist bei Loewe, einem der drei letzten verbliebenen TV-Gerätehersteller Deutschlands neben Metz und Technisat, schon lange nich
ts mehr.

Per Kapitalschnitt soll das Grundkapital drastisch auf ein Viertel und damit 3,3 Millionen Euro eingedampft werden. Geplant ist eine anschließende Kapitalerhöhung in einer Dimension, die Investoren zwei Drittel aller Firmenanteile zuteilen würde. Denn Loewe braucht dringend frisches Geld. Es gebe Interessenten, heißt es dort, einen strategischen Investor aus Asien und einen aus der Finanzbranche, mit denen Gespräche geführt werden.

Another STEP FORWARD for EUROPE to be transformed quickly in somewhat similar to Afrika !

SHAME !

21/03/2014: Münchener Investor übernimmt Loewe:

KronachNach langem Bangen hat der traditionsreiche Fernsehgerätehersteller Loewe einen Investor gefunden und hofft nun auf eine bessere Zukunft. Das Münchner Finanzunternehmen Stargate Capital übernimmt das oberfränkische Traditionsunternehmen, hieß es in einer am Freitagabend veröffentlichten Mitteilung. „Wir sind sehr froh, dass es nach den Turbulenzen der letzten Wochen gelungen ist, einen starken Partner für Loewe zu finden“, erklärte Vorstandschef Matthias Harsch. „Loewe kann nun endlich neu durchstarten.“

Ein notarieller Kaufvertrag über den gesamten Geschäftsbetrieb sei bereits von beiden Seiten unterzeichnet worden, hieß es. Der neue Eigentümer führe den Geschäftsbetrieb am Standort Kronach einschließlich der Produktion fort. Zudem übernimmt Stargate Capital auch die internationalen Tochtergesellschaften. Von den aktuell rund 525 Mitarbeitern dürfen jedoch nur 430 bleiben. Von der Börse will sich Loewe verabschieden.

Durch die Übernahme von Stargate Capital blieben mehr Arbeitsplätze erhalten, als es bei den Erwerberkonzepten aller anderen Kaufinteressenten vorgesehen war, betonte Loewe-Finanzvorstand Rolf Rickmeyer. Die 95 Mitarbeiter, die nach dem Einstieg des Investors nicht übernommen werden sollen, stammen vor allem aus der Produktion und sollen bis Ende September weiterbeschäftigt werden. Von Oktober an sollen sie dann in eine Transfergesellschaft wechseln können. „Dass nicht alle Arbeitsplätze gerettet werden können, bedauere ich umso mehr, als es nicht zuletzt das Verdienst der Mitarbeiter ist, dass Loewe diese schwere Zeit überstehen konnte“, sagte Rickmeyer.

Seit einem Jahr war Loewe inständig auf der Suche nach einem Retter. Im Frühjahr 2013 schockte der Hersteller von Premium-TVs mit der Nachricht, dass die Hälfte des Grundkapitals bald aufgezehrt sei. Im Herbst folgte der Antrag auf Insolvenz in Eigenverwaltung. Mitte Januar dieses Jahres schien es so, als sei mit dem Investor Panthera bereits ein Retter gefunden. Doch vor einem Monat trat die private Investorengruppe völlig überraschend vom Kaufvertrag zurück.

Nach dieser erneuten Hiobsbotschaft für die bei Loewe verbliebenen Mitarbeiter trat Stargate Capital auf den Plan. Das Finanzunternehmen aus München ist auf Investments in mittelständische Unternehmen spezialisiert. „Mit Stargate Capital haben wir vor allem einen Investor gefunden, der eine langfristige Strategie verfolgt mit dem Ziel, Loewe wieder zu alter Stärke zurückzuführen“, erklärte Vorstandschef Harsch.

Über den genauen Kaufpreis schwiegen beide Seiten. Er liege „im oberen einstelligen Millionenbereich“, hieß es lediglich. In den kommenden Jahren seien Investitionen im mittleren zweistelligen Millionenbereich geplant.
