The first fully electronic television system is achieved 1927
Philo Taylor Farnsworth, August 19, 1906 – March 11, 1971 was an American inventor who worked out the principle of the image dissector in the summer of 1921, not long before his 15th birthday.
He demonstrated the invention of the first fully functional all electronic image pickup device (video camera tube), the image dissector, as well as the first fully functional and complete all-electronic television system on September 7th, 1927, at the age of 21.
Farnsworth developed a television system complete with receiver and camera which he produced commercially through the Farnsworth Television and Radio Corporation from 1938 to 1951, in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
He made many crucial contributions to the early development of all electronic television. Farnsworth held 300 patents, mostly in radio and television.
Extra Note: As a farm boy, Farnsworth inspiration for scanning and producing an image from a series of lines came from the back and forth motion used to plough a field.
