Early Color Television

CBS System at the CNAM Museum in Paris

In 1948, the Centre National d'Etudes des Telecommunications (CNET) purchased a color TV system from CBS for preliminary research into color TV. The equipment probably arrived in Paris in 1950, and was used for several years before it was put in the warehouse of the CNAM museum in Paris. The system also had a Gray Research 1101 monitor.
