Telorama - The Definition
Telorama was the word chosen to describe television, by
the American scientist Dr. D. McFarlan Moore. It appears
to be a contraction of the words Television and Drama.
Dr, Moore developed and patented the neon gas lamp still
used today for lighted advertising signs. He also invented
the crater arc lamps used with lens disks, for mechanical
television. He was also renowned for having built all of
the first vacuum tubes used and sold by DeForest.
