"It is hard to estimate when the
University will go into color tele-
vision," Director of Television
Prof. Garnet R. Garrison, said.
"The costs of setting up a studio
and transmitter able to accomo-
date color telecasting are enor-
mous," he continued, "ranging
upwards of $250,000."
Garrison said, however, that if
color kineoscopes are developed,
the University may go into color
television sooner than expected, as
such an operation is not as costly.

"Educational television would be
tremendously benefited by color,
of course, especially in the fields
of medicine and art."
Garrison feels that the main
problem in providing color televi-
sion for the whole nation is one of
production. So far no method of
inexpensive mass production has
been found, and until it does, peo-
ple cannot afford to buy.
"It's an endless circle," he said.
"Advertisers aren't willing to spon-
sor shows and research unless they
are sure that many people are
watching, and people won't buy
color sets until the field is perfect-
ed and they can watch good pro-
grams."
Upkeep Adds Expense
Besides the initial cost of color
TV sets, there is the added ex-
pense of upkeep, Garrison pointed
out. A color set would require more
adjustment more frequently than,
a black and white set.

"However, the field is definitely
growing and improving," he con-
tinued. "Within another five years
color sets will be fairly wide-
spread, and in ten years, 75-85%
of the people will be receiving col-
or.
"One really can't estimate ex-
actly," he qualified, "as the con-
stant research and experimenta-'
tion may lead to some new tech-
nique which will bring color to the
people more quickly and more in-
expensively."
The University studio has an ad-
vantage in the fact that it uses
colorful sets right now. It has been
found that such a background
makes performers more comfort-
able.
"If all the stations that the Uni-
versity serves obtained color trans-
mission facilities," Garrison said,
"then we might try color films
within the next two or three
years."
