What's still critically missing is when the term was coined and then adopted into general usage. I'm pretty sure that people still simply said "TV" or "television" long into the 1970s. Heck, even today many people still call it a "film" when it's actually a video clip! --188.8.131.52 (talk) 09:03, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
To my surprise, I've now come upon an early TV series called Captain Video and His Video Rangers that was broadcast on DuMont since 1949. According to the series's German article, Cpt. Video derived his name from his so-called opticon scillometer, which was a television set that he used to oversee the activities of all his agents on earth. --184.108.40.206 (talk) 09:28, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
