Cable on the Public Mind


Robert K. Yin


Cable-TV is coming to the cities to serve 137 million people. The technologists are ready. They can easily demonstrate the vast potentials of advanced cable systems: two-way audio video communication between classrooms and students at home; data storage and retrieval systems to make medical records, library materials and pictorial and filmed subjects available to individual users; microwave links and satellite relays to connect whole regions of the country. The businessmen are ready. They will compete vigorously for franchising rights in the cities as they already have in many places, and they will build cable systems wherever profits can be made.
