Introduced in April 1954, the RCA CT-100 was the second all-electronic consumer color television set in the USA, preceded by the Westinghouse H840CK15 by a few weeks. The color picture tube measured 15 inches diagonally. The viewable picture was just 11½ inches wide. The sets were made at RCA's plant in Bloomington, Indiana. The sets cost $1000, half the price of a new low-end automobile. By the end of 1954, RCA released an improved color TV with a 21-inch picture tube.
