#WhyArmenia: Hovannes Adamian

Imagine you turn on TV and all you see are images in black and white: this is what people in the early 1900s could see on television. That doesn’t seem really pleasant, right?

Everything changed due to the innovative idea of Hovannes Adamian, a brilliant Armenian inventor and scientist whose invention of tricolor principle revolutionized the history of color television.
The first experimental color television was shown in London in 1928 based on Adamian’s tricolor principle.
