Background: C. Francis Jenkins developed the Phantoscope moving picture projectorin the early 1890's. He was awarded aGold Medal from the Franklin Institute for it asthe "world's first practical movie projector." It was the first machine to allow each still frame to be illuminated before moving on to the next sequence. This allowed the brain enough time to register each image and differed from Thomas Edison's early Kinetoscope in which the endless loop of film caused the images to blur. Jenkins got into a legal battle with an investor, ThomasArmat, who eventually sold the patent to Edison.
Jenkins continued to make improvements to the Phantoscope and eventually branched into making cameras such as the one described in this brochure. These were eventually used for broadcasting to home receivers via radio waves, or inother words, TELEVISION!
