microphone and TV


15 November 2001, Japan
50th Anniversary of Private Commercial Broadcasting
design: Akira Tamaki

In the early times of TV news broadcasting, the microphone was prominent – although news-readers are no longer talking to microphone these days, it being hidden or at least discreet.

I like this almost stoic stamp showing early TV equipment, together with the shape of a TV screen in the three primary colours, and the old style ending title of a program.  In my memory this shape of TV screen is familiar, but current TVs are all rectangular with a lot more width than height – cinema proportions, almost.
