New and shorter big screen 16-inch kinescope developed by RCA scientists. Pl/em: s/r/k 7%e hewns/* 6be, 6bu/keep #eit/ce sir Some rooms accommodate grand pianos, the smaller spinet is right for others. Until re cently, much the same rule held true for television receivers, and your choice of screen sizes was largely governed by your room space. Now the space problem has been whipped by RCA scientists, who have shortened the length of 16-inch television "picture tubes" more than 20%! All the complex inner works-such as the sensitive electron gun that "paints" pic tures on the screen-have been redesigned to operate at shorter focus, wider angle. Also a new type of faceplate glass, Filterglass, has been developed for RCA's 16 inch picture tubes; it reduces re flections, increases contrast, and improves picture quality.
