There needs to be a small grammatical change, but it would greatly clarify the sentence. The section on "History." Paragraph 3, Sentence 2 Currently reads, "From this period forward, scanning in one form or another has been used in nearly every image transmission technology to date, including television." Would be changed to, "From this period forward, scanning, in one form or another, has been used in nearly every image transmission technology to date, including television."

The etymology section in the summary seems a bit tautological. I think it would be clearer if we removed "from French télévision, meaning "television"; " entirely. Catacomb007 (talk) 21:29, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Yellow check.svg Partly done: I believe any monoglot can figure out that Fr. télévision = En. television, and I have removed the latter. It does make sense to leave {{ety|fra|télévision}} in. Sam Sailor Sing 21:58, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Small Edits[edit]

The first picture in the "Color TV" section is not labeled with a date. At least when it was first used would be helpful. Also, the first sentence of the second paragraph in the intro is unclear and confusing. We shouldn't use the word "vehicle" and shouldn't end the sentence with "..., and news." since the other items in the list are longer. Buscus 3 (talk) 02:09, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
