Dr. Charles Francis Jenkins of Washington, D.G. has pro-
duced some of the io"t remarkable discoveries of this raechani-
cal age. He i« the father of the motion ricture industry .hav-
ing invented the prototype of the motion ricture projector now
u^ed in every theater in the world- He invented the apparatus
which ^ent and received the first radio photographs an d a "hort
while later produced an apparatus for viewing distant scenes by
radio directly, and radio movie° for hone entertainment. Devel-
oping the spiral wound all rarer container used the world over
for the transportation of liquids in "mall quantities i» to

trol of the sending and receiving motors i« maintained by the
vibration of a rather heavy fork at each station and are ad-
justed to beat together, with a slight automatic conection by
fcadio as may be required td keep the folk* irt all of the re-

It is a simrle and very dependable method.
Another method of keening the motors in "ten is to
have a small synchronous radio suitor controlled by rower radia-
ted from the broadcasting station. It is rotated partly by
thi° rndiated -rower and partly y -~' a local current jn^t as n

CHABX.ES FBANCIS JENKINS. OF WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.
SFIBAL-MOU NTED LENS DISK.
Application filed January 2. 1925. Serial Ho. 323.
This invention relates to apparatus for
the transmission of pictures by radio, in
which the picture is made up of lines across
an approximately itat surface, said lines
having varying values.
The principal object of this invention is
the design of a simple device which permits
of a speed which will cover the entire pic-
ture surface within the time of persistence
of vision, say. one-twelfth or one-sixteenth
of a second.
With these and other objects in view the
invention consists of the novel details of
construction and combination of parts mom
fully hereinafter disclosed and particularly
pointed out in the claims.
Referring to the accompanying drawing
forming a part of this specification, Figure
1 is a front view of the lens-carrier disk, and
Figure -2 a schematic drawing showing how
it is employed
Tn the drawing A is a disk with a plural-
ity of spirally arranged holes therein, over
each of which a lens is mounted, as B, B\
B", etc. The dUk is intended to be rotated
between a spot-source of light L, and a pic-
ture surf nee or screen M, shown edge on.
When the lens 15 is in front id the light
the image of the source strikes the screen
near the top, as shown in full line; when the
lens li" i ition to project, the image
will appear on the picture surface near the
bottom, as indicated by the dotted line;
when other lenses come into pnsiti m to pro-
ject, the images fall in successively differ-
ent positio is between these extremes.
It will-readily be understood that the ro-
tation of tiie disk would cause the lenses lo
travel across the screen from side to side;
while I lie location of the lenses at different
radial distances from the a.\is makes the
lateral trips of each lens at different levels,
so that the whole picture surface is scanned.
It will also lie understood that the disk-
mounted lenses could just as well scan a *&•.
picture surface to he sent as they scan a
screen upon which (he picture is put, with-
out departing from (he spirit of my inven-
What I claim, is— W
1. "In combination, a stationary picture
surface, a stationary Jjghf translating ele-
ment, a lotatahle disk interposed between
said surface and said element, said disk lift-
ing provided with a v plurality of apertures M
of huge dimensions as compared with an
elementary area of the picture surface, and
a spherical lens mounted in each aperture
For imaging the picture surface and the light
translating element each upon the other, M
-aid apertures ami lenses being so arranged
that upon rotation of the disk the lenses
pass successively between said surface and
said element, and successive images of the
light translating element traverse the pic- 65
lure surface by adjacent parallel paths.
2. In continuation, a stationary light
translating element, and a scanning device
consisting of a rotatahle disk interposed be-
tween the said element and a plane to be 70
scanned, said disk being provided with a
plurality of apertures of large dimensions
as compared with an elementary area of the
scanned plane, and a lens mounted in each
aperture, said apertures and lenses being so TS
arranged that upon rotation of the disk
the lenses will pass between said plane and
said element and successive images of the
light translating element traverse the plane
by adjacent parallel paths, 80

HELICAL DRUM SCANNER
Application filed June 13, 1928. Serial No. 255.015.
This Invention relates to radiovisors, i. e.,
ratus for the reception of motion pic-
■ ; i : ' ■ I l ■ - dio, and has for its prin-
cipal object simple, inexpensive apparati
tana!] size, and producing a relatively large
i :>f superior quality.
■etofore the generally employed method
for the ■ n of radio vision, radio
mo\ re of a large
with a plurality of scanning
holes therein arranged in a spiral. Such a
mechanism i'-- limited by the dimensions of the
apparatus itself, for example —
liming 48 lines to the pid scan-
15 ning disc two feet in diameter produces a
pic inch square. For a picture
two inches square with the same number of
lines pei* picture, requires a disc four feet in
iameter, and an enormous increase in the
power cf J he motor required to drive it at
speed, an increase equal to the ninth power of
se in speed. Reduced to merchan-
dising terms, this means a device impractical
use in (he average home.
A still further limitation of the disc method
ofsc that the whole picture an
the surface scanned is lighted simultaneously,
and, therefore, requires a radio power ampli-
fier (many times greater than a method
so which consists of hut a small glow area).
Thi >■ amplifier required still further
limits Hie ;i ility of the apparatus for
the average home, Eor it can id be atta e
l' the usual two-stage amplifier radio
The employment of a drum as (he scanning
ided in the present invention, is
without the limitations cited above, for ex-
ample, the picture may be increased by (1)
an meres e to the speed of rotation; and/or
(2) an increase in the diameter oft! ' urn;
and/or (3) a lesser increase in both.
Among its further advantages, incident to
the above, is that the scanning means is very
ht, with moderate peripheral speed, and.
45 therefore, requires but a small motor.
The scanning apertures, in the drum
I, are all equi-distant from each other,
and, therefore, distortion due to varying
spa apertures in the di e method, is en-
50 tirely eliminated.
Also, with this drum method of scanning,
"in of the scanning apertures
lighted independently by its own par-
r glowing target, which results in a
lonomy of current required for light -
With this and other objects in view, the
invention consist- of the novel combination
lements herein described, illustrated in
the. drawings, and pari icularly pointed out in eo
i he drawings, Figure 1 is a top view of
the drum : Figure 2 an end view thereof; and
Figure 8 : sectional view of the lamp eni-
In the figures, A is the scanning drum; B
auning apertures therein arranged in a
irn helix; C the lamp which encloses
the glowing targets 1 , C 2 , C 3 . and C*.
Between the lamp and the inner periphery
of the drum lies a funnel structure V, divided
hin part'' ' into four parts oi
tions. The small end of. each section of this
multiple funnel structure lies over its particu-
The larger end has an opening in length
equal to the circumferential separation of the
scanning apertures, and a width equal to the
helical separation of (he holes beginning and
ending the helical turn.
•■eft > re. the light from each target is
confined to the illumination of bill a single
helical turn of the scanning apertures.
Again, as the mouth of the funnel is only as
wide as the circumferential separation be-
i ween any two scanning apertures, the result
is that but a single aperture is illuminated at
any one moment
As the generally accepted method of scan-
ning in receiving instruments is so well known 90
to those skilled in this art, a description of
ation in meticulous detail is not be-
In general, however, the method consists,
first, in turning the scanning drum as many
times per picture as there are helical turns
of the circumferential line of scanning aper-
tures; second, lighting the glow targets or
light sources one at a time in synchronism
with each rotation of the drum, for example ioo
