1927 John Logie Baird founds the Baird Television Company, which later becomes Cinema-Television and then Cintel.


Nationality: British

Brief Bio: 1927-current (2009), manufacturer of digital cinema and television equipment, England

Notes: Manufacturer of cathode ray tubes, film and cinema lighting and recording equipment, specialist in digital film recording; formerly part of Rank Organisation; 1927 foundation of Baird Television Company; name changed to Cinema-Television Limited, 1940, later shortened to Cintel; 1958 becomes Rank Cintel Limited; 1996 becomes Cintel International Limited;

John Logie Baird FRSE (13 August 1888 – 14 June 1946) was a Scottish engineer and inventor of the world's first practical, publicly demonstrated television system, and also the world's first fully electronic colour television tube. Although Baird's electromechanical system was eventually displaced by purely electronic systems (such as those of Vladimir Zworykin, Marconi-EMI and Philo Farnsworth), Baird's early successes demonstrating working television broadcasts and his colour and cinema television work earn him a prominent place in television's invention. In 2002, Logie Baird was ranked number 44 in the BBC's list of the "100 Greatest Britons" following a UK-wide vote. In 2006, Logie Baird was also named as one of the 10 greatest Scottish scientists in history, having been listed in the National Library of Scotland's 'Scottish Science Hall of Fame'. The "Baird" brand name was first owned by Thorn-EMI and is now owned and used by the Brighthouse retail chain in the UK for its own brand televisions.
