CBS-Columbia RX-28 television receiver

Made:
1946-48 in United States
maker:
CBS Broadcasting Inc.

CBS-Columbia RX-28 field-sequential colour television receiver prototype, 1946-48. This is the only known example of the RX-28 prototype (sadly, it is missing its outer cabinet and oil-filled screen magnifier). Very few CBS-Columbia field-sequential colour sets have survived. The set uses a 5" monochrome picture tube (not installed, but probably a DuMont type 5JP4 or RCA 5BP4). RCA bakelite knobs.
