BROADCAST NEWS of April 1961

Dealer Orders for 1961 Color Receivers Have Increased Nationwide 300% Over a Year Ago.

Contributing heavily to color TV dealers' spurting sales successes are the excellent field reports boldly underscoring advances made in color TV receiver performance and reliability.

This quality is not by accident. In 1960 RCA spent more than $2-million on special quality controls for the new home instrument line alone, a very large part of which is now in color TV quality control facilities.

At RCA's plant at Bloomington, Indiana, one out of every five employees devotes all of his time to the inspection and testing of the work of the other four people who actually build the color television receivers.

Rigid "Torture" Tests

RCA TV receiver testers are always looking for trouble and they have devised devious ways to find it. For example, wire-wrap connections in every set are subjected to highly corrosive gases and a 32-pound "pull" test to reveal contact imperfections.

Each TV chassis is given a rapid vibration treatment to expose possible weaknesses and shake out foreign matter, and then pounded with a rubber mallet during alignment tests to expose near-shorts.

The safety glass faceplate which guards the picture tube withstands, without breakage, the impact of a two-pound steel ball dropped from a height of six feet. Finally assembled, each set is air-tested on all channels by RCA's plant color TV transmitter.

Even after being packed for shipping, several units of each new model are put through a jarring "drop" test to check the ability of the design to withstand rough handling. Life tests with peak voltages are equivalent to one-and-a-half years of normal viewing in the home.

Quality control begins in the research laboratory and extends through the production stages, but doesn't end there. The search for ways and means to improve the product after it is marketed continues.

One striking example of this is the near-perfection of the tint-controls and the ease of tuning in the 1961 RCA Victor color TV line.
