  1. Communication Technology Timeline By Ivan Chau TGJ3M1 Mr. Negru

  2. Communication Technologies60s and 70s

  3. Magazine 1663 First publication of ErbaulicheMonaths-Unterredungen (Uplifting Conversations Monthly) in Germany started by Johann Rist, a theologian and poet of Hamburg. It believed to be the world's first magazine. Social Impact: This is A monthly magazine, which means that Germans can understand the main events happening in the society and it motivate people to involve in the society Related Invention: Writing

  4. Newspaper 1704 Weekly Boston News-Letter becomes the first newspaper to survive in America. John Campbell, a bookseller and postmaster of Boston, was its first editor, printing the newspaper on what was then referred to as a half-sheet. It originally appeared on a single page, printed on both sides and issued weekly. Economic Impact: This is A monthly magazine, which means that Germans can understand the main events happening in the society and it motivate people to involve in the society Related Invention: Writing

  5. Printing 1710 German-born painter and engraver who was the first to make use of several metal plates (each for an individual colour) for making prints with continuous gradations of colour. His colour theory formed the foundation for modern colour printing Cultural and Social Impact: It is a great impact on culture and because colour can be a symbol of many things. Therefore, colour printing is a great step in expressing emotion or feelings. All the communication technologies are in colour and this is also the first starting point of colour image. Related Invention: Printing

  6. Lithography 1798 Lithography is invented by AloisSenefelder. Lithography is a method for printing using a stone (Lithographic Limestone) or a metal plate with a completely smooth surface. Lithography uses oil or fat and gum arabic to divide the smooth surface into hydrophobic regions which accept the ink, and hydrophilic regions which reject it and thus become the background. Environmental Impact: Lithography is using a metal plate unlike the older printing that used wood block to print. Metal plate printing can be more precise and metal plate is also more durable than wood block printing. Related Invention: Printing

  7. Communication Technologies 80s

  8. Flat-bed Cylinder printing1819 Flat-bed cylinder printing press employing a flat surface for the type or plates against which paper is pressed, either by another flat surface acting reciprocally against it or by a cylinder rolling over it. It may be contrasted to the rotary press, which has a cylindrical printing surface. The first cylinder flatbed press was built by Friedrich Koenig of Germany and used by The Times of London in 1814. Economic Impact: A cylinder printing is more efficient in terms of the printing speed because it is printing on a long roll of paper or substance and the cylinder will rotate continuously on the paper. It will significantly increase the rate of printing. Related Invention: Printing

  9. Photographic Image1827 In 1827 French inventor Joseph NicéphoreNiépce was the first to obtain a true fixed photographic image. This first exposure took eight hours! Photography was born, but it was a long way from everyday use. He took the first photograph by coating a pewter plate with bitumen and exposing the plate to light in 1814. The bitumen hardened where light struck. The unhardened areas were then dissolved away. Social and Economic Impact: Photograph is a tool for the future reference about history because photograph can help saving the memories in the past. Photograph has also changed to many different technology or entertainment in the century such as the cartoons or movies. Related Invention: Camera

  10. Galvanometer 1829 LeopoldiNobili invents the galvanometer. Galvanometer is the historical name given to a moving coil electric current detector. When a current is passed through a coil in a magnetic field, the coil experiences a torque proportional to the current. If the coil's movement is opposed by a coil spring, then the amount of deflection of a needle attached to the coil may be proportional to the current passing through the coil. Social Impact: Galvanometer is a new instrument to measure electric current. Workers can work more efficient without spending time on measuring electric current. Galvanometer is still a very useful tool right now to measure batteries. Related Invention: Sound Recording

  11. Phenakistiscope1832 Joseph-Antoine Plateau invents the Phenakistiscope, using a slotted disc to create an appearance of continuous motion when spun in front of a series of still images. The phenakistoscope consisted of two discs mounted on the same axis.  The first disc had slots around the edge, and the second contained drawings of successive action, drawn around the disc in concentric circles. Social Impact: This is the first time that people can see the movement of an image and this is also the base of the advance cartoon in nowadays. It is also a new entertainment for human. Related Invention: Video Games

  12. Picture telegraphy system1850 Picture telegraphy system is demonstrated by Frederick C Bakewell in which images are transmitted by making and breaking an electrical current such that the image is recorded by a metallic point depositing shellac ink to discolour chemically-coated paper wrapped around a metal cylinder, tracking spirally. Social Impact: Picture can be send by telegraph instead of mailing. Telegraph is a much more efficient source to transfer information from a place to another. Picture telegraph was innovated to become the television in everyone’s house which it receive picture with audio too. Related Invention: Television

  13. Submarine cable1851 First successful submarine cable is laid between Dover and Calais by Thomas Crampton’s Submarine Cable Company, creating a continuous telegraph link between London and Paris. The four copper wires, sheathed in guttapercha and a protective iron rope, lasts 37 years. Political and Social Impact: The relation between England and France and greatly improvement because the submarine cable let the two countries to communication to each other. Submarine cables are very important because they transfer all the signals from one place to another place like telephone signal and internet. Related Invention: Telephone and Internet

  14. Sound Recording1857 The first device that could record sound mechanically (but could not play it back) was the phonautograph, developed in 1857 by Parisian inventor Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville. The earliest known recordings of the human voice were phonautograms also made in 1857 Cultural and Economic Impact: Music can be recorded when sound recording invented. People can listen to their favourite music without going to live performance. Music also can be selling after recorded. Related Invention: Sound Recording

  15. Colour Photograph1861 The first colour photograph was made by Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell, with the help of English inventor and photographer Thomas Sutton, in 1861. He had the photographer Thomas Sutton photograph a tartan ribbon three times, each time with a different color filter over the lens. The three images were developed and then projected onto a screen with three different projectors, each equipped with the same color filter used to take its image. When brought into focus, the three images formed a full color image. Social Impact: Show the contrast of the photograph and show the actually image or circumstance. Colour is also used for everything in the twenty-first century. Related Invention: Camera

  16. Telephone 1876 Alexander Graham Bell's notebook entry of 10 March 1876 describes his successful experiment with the telephone. First practical use of a voice telephone system at 5 Exeter Place, Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Bell says to his assistant: 'Mr Watson, come here. I want you.' Social and Economic Impact: Communication between people in the society will be more clearly, straight forward and efficient. The highly used technology mobile is also innovated from the telephone. Related Invention: Telephone

  17. Microphone 1876 In 1876, Emily Berliner was the person to invent the first microphone which was used as a voice transmitter, known as a telephone today. She did not invent the telephone, but improved it with the microphone. A microphone is a device for converting acoustic power into electric power that has essentially similar wave characteristics. Microphones convert sound waves into electrical voltages that are eventually converted back into sound waves thru speakers. Social Impact: It is a great instrument for any politics or social affair because it project speaker’s voice which let all the audience can listen clearly. Microphones also used in telephones which transfer the signal to the other side. Related Invention: Sound Recording

  18. Loud Speaker 1876 A loudspeaker is an electroacoustictransducer that converts an electricalsignal into sound. The speaker pulses in accordance with the variations of an electrical signal and causes sound waves to propagate through a medium such as air or water.Alexander Graham Bell patented his first electric loudspeaker as part of his telephone in 1876 which capable of reproducing intelligible speech Social and Economic Impact: Loudspeaker is also an instrument that corporate with microphones to project the sound or signal. Speakers are built in many different technologies such as cell phones, computer and television. Related Invention: Sound recording and Playback

  19. International telephone call1857 First international telephone call is made between Calais, Maine in the USA and St Stephen, New Brunswick in Canada. Social and Cultural Impact: It improves the relation between Canada and USA. International telephone call is what the long distance call right now. Countries at the opposite side can still communicate to each other which may develop the relation between countries. Related Invention: Telephone

  20. Photographic Film 1885 Photographic film is a photographic material consisting of a base of celluloid covered with a photographic emulsion; used to make negatives or transparencies Early photography in the form of daguerreotypes did not use film at all. Eastman Kodak developed the first flexible photographic film in 1885. This original "film" was coated on paper. The first transparent plastic film was produced in 1889. Environmental and Economic Impact: It will negative impact on the environment because photographic film uses many chemicals that may cause damage on the environment and the society. However, photographic film is which will create the printed photos. Related Invention: Movie

  21. Radio 1895 Guglielmo Marconi, an Italian inventor, proved the feasibility of radio communication. He sent and received his first radio signal in Italy in 1895. By 1899 he flashed the first wireless signal across the English Channel and two years later received the letter "S", telegraphed from England to Newfoundland. This was the first successful transatlantic radiotelegraph message in 1902. Social and Cultural Impact: Using radiotelegraph to transfer message or information in the society is more efficient. Radio in nowadays is also transfer by radiotelegraph. Radio shows already became an entertainment for people when they have free time or when they driving. Related Invention: Radio

  22. X-Ray 1895 X-rays are discovered by Wilhelm Röntgen.He wrote an initial report "On a new kind of ray: A preliminary communication" and on December 28, 1895 submitted it to the Würzburg's Physical-Medical Society journal. This was the first paper written on X-rays. Röntgen referred to the radiation as "X", to indicate that it was an unknown type of radiation. Cultural Impact: A new step of communication technology for doctor or medical officers to communication with the patients about their problems or diseases. Disease can be found out through x-ray and then it can be cure. Related Invention: Camera

  23. Communication Technologies 90s

  24. Metal Detector 1904 The first to use radio waves to detect "the presence of distant metallic objects" was Christian Hülsmeyer, who in 1904 demonstrated the feasibility of detecting the presence of a ship in dense fog, but not its distance. He received Reichspatent Nr. 165546 for his pre-radar device in April 1904 Social and Economic Impact: A development on the communication technology which is use in the society nowadays to avoid crimes. Metal detectors are use in many ways, for instance, US army use it to search for weapon. It is also commonly use at the airport. Related Invention: Radio

  25. Wireless Telegraph 1904 Weather reports relayed by wireless telegraphy are first published in London.
