The Romanian Television Society or simply the Romanian Television (TVR) is the public television institution in Romania, which broadcasts its programs on four main channels: TVR 1, TVR 2, TVR 3 and TVR International.
In 1928 the engineer George Cristescu developed a mechanical television system, also managing to broadcast images at a distance. On October 30, 1937, the engineer Cristian Musceleanu presented to the Romanian public a Nipkow disc television station, at the Politehnica in Bucharest. In November of the same year he makes a demonstration at the Romanian Athenaeum, with the help of a camera with a resolution of 45 lines, on the wavelength of 80 meters. The receiver had a 7 cm screen diagonal and the transmitter had a power of 200 watts.
