John Logie Baird. Coloured portrait of John Logie Baird (1888-1946), British electrical engineer and television (TV) pioneer. Baird was educated in Glasgow, Scotland, and devoted himself to experimentation. He developed a crude TV apparatus able to transmit a picture and receive it over a range of a few feet. By 1929 he was involved with early TV transmissions. He was using a mechanical scanning system with 240 lines by 1936, but his system was displaced by the Marconi-EMI electronic scanning system with 405 lines. Baird also pioneered colour, stereoscopic and big screen TV, as well as ultra-short wave transmission.
