Neon Crater Lamp for Mechanical Television Set
Lampe-cratère au néon pour téléviseur mécanique
Neon-Kraterlampe für mechanisches Fernsehgerät
A crater lamp is a high intensity neon lamp with a very small spot size; its brightness is proportional to the signal current sent through the lamp. It provides, therefore, a bright point source of light which is modulated behind the spinning Nipkow disc of a mechanical television to assemble the picture. This allows a somewhat larger and brighter picture than is possible with flat plate tubes like the
DeForest 601 Vis-Ion Kino Lamp.
