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 ! !

TYPE: Limited liabilities

THE COMPANY CODE: 1478 02225
ACTIVITY: Manufacturing of electronic devices
TV tube factory located in Panevezys, Lithuania, approximately 130 km north of the capital, Vilnius. Description of Company and Purpose of Project Ekranas is the second largest private company in Lithuania. The Company makes color TV tubes and is the only remaining TV tube factory of all of Former Soviet Union which remains in operation UNTIL 2006 !

  • 2006-04-12 From wire reports
The TV tube manufacturer Ekranas, one of Lithuania's premier companies, filed for
 bankruptcy on April 7 2006, citing unfavorable trends on the global electronics market. The TV tube manufacturer said it was depleted of working capital and no longer able to pay suppliers and back loans, nor meet other obligations.
Ekranas said in a statement to the Vilnius Stock Exchange that CEO Eimutis Zvybas had asked the Panevezys Regional Court to open bankruptcy proceedings.

The news comes as a mild shock after the company had welcomed an upturn in demand for TV tubes and announced that its financial picture looked more optimistic. But the company said it could not operate due to a shortage of working capital. It also said that a glass melting furnace failure had aggravated the situation.
Ekranas, which is located in Panevezys, posted a loss of 110.3 million litas (32 million euros) for 2005, compared to a net profit of 1.3 million litas in 2004. Sales dropped by 27.3 percent to 339.6 million litas last year.
The company said it would ask the VSE to move its shares from the blue chip Official List to the Current List. The bourse asked the financially troubled producer to consider removing its shares from the blue chip list in early March.

Meanwhile, Vilniaus Vingis, a component electronics manufacturer, said it had halted the supply of deflection yokes to Ekranas.
"Ekranas has not bought anything today, and we do not know what will be tomorrow. Everything is absolutely unclear 's nobody tells us anything," said CEO Vaclovas Sleinota.
Vilniaus Vingis reduced the output of deflection yokes, which were still purchased by a Samsung plant in Hungary and a Thomson plant in Poland.

Sleinota was unwilling to comment on the company's future plans. "The decisions will be made and announced by the new board," he said.
The new board, which is likely to include Nerijus Dagilis, chairman of investment company Hermis Capital, will be elected on May 13.

Vilniaus Vingis posted losses of 5.6 million litas in 2005 as sales slumped 33.8 percent to 81.2 million litas. The company blamed the poor performance results on rising copper prices, severance payments to employees and a general downturn in the market.
As of September last year, Ekranas' major shareholders included Profilo Sanayi Ve Ticaret (14.9 percent stake), Farimex (13.28), Redoak Investment (12.77) and E.P.I. Electronet Production and Investments (8.09).

IN GERMAN AB Ekranas war ein litauisches Unternehmen, das Bildröhren herstellte. Es wurde 1994 privatisiert und am 18. April als Aktiengesellschaft registriert.

Das Unternehmen war an der Börse Vilnius notiert. Am 20. April 2006 eröffnete das Bezirksgericht Panevėžys ein Insolvenzverfahren für AB „Ekranas“ und ernannte als Insolvenzverwalter Laisvutis Virgilijus Survila. Am 25. Mai 2006 änderte der Litauische Appellationshof die Entscheidung von 20. April 2006 und ernannte als Insolvenzverwalter von BAB „Ekranas“ das Unternehmen UAB „Baklis“ (Gintaras Gelčys).
