The Over The Airia Broadcaster (Part I)
The Over The Airia Broadcaster (Part II)

Thomas Edison's earliest patent filing (a caveat) for motion pictures was in 1888, but 11 years earlier the first publication about television appeared, and there has not been a year since without television research. Yet there does not appear to have been any video research -- not even speculation or fantasy -- prior to 1877. Why? What role did the Washington area play in video development? Did people pay to watch remote baseball games live as early as 1884? Were the first patents for virtual video events like this one issued in 1895? Was there an actual live, watchable video image by 1879? Register to find out!
