Fernseh at the Berlin Olympics

For the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin, the Deutsche Reichspost set up 28 viewing room around the city equipped with Fernseh projectors to screen the daily transmissions.

The projector received and displayed images in a 375-line interlaced format, producing a picture of approximately 48ins x 42ins.
        The projector was also demonstrated at the Berlin Radio Show (Funkausstellung) later in August 1936.
