    I didn't realize Henry was responsible for introducing projection tv to the consumer.

    Kloss Novabeam.

    I used to own a front projector based on that design. There's still some people that say it was well ahead of it's time- particularly in regards to the Y/C seperator, and some other basic details.

    The curved screen was a pain in the butt in some ways, but the silvered surface was pretty bright for it's time.

    I don't know why, but I thought he was older than that, at least ten years or so. It's sad to see the icons of one's life passing, but a few go every year.

    Regards,

    Jon

      Ahhh, the Novabeam. I recall seeing these in some taverns a few years ago. If sitting off center the screen was quite dull. I wasn't aware they put these into consumer homes.
