In a career that spanned 3 years at Dumont Labs,
3 years at North American Phillips and 29 years at CBS Engineering,
I had exposure to all the areas suggested by Harold Deppe.
I would vote Analog to Digital as the most important advance in Television Electronics.
I retired from CBS in 1995 just as the Analog to Digital revolution was beginning but
I definitely think the Digital Technology has had the most significant impact.
I would also like to welcome Paul Heimbach aboard.
As I recall, Paul shared an office with me at Black Rock during his tenure at CBS
before he left to go to HBO..
