In 1932 this television set was built by the engineering department of Purdue University and was one of “the first to add synchronizing pulses to their transmissions.” This experimental set had a reception of 60 mechanical transmissions and was created for the use of the University’s station “W9XG.” Being one of the first electronic TV receivers Purdue's engineering department worked to advance the TV. As seen in the picture it is equipped with a circular screen and controllable transmission.
