Guillermo González Camarena

continued to hone his television system, in 1942 went from closed-circuit broadcasts to those carried out remotely from the laboratory in the basement of his house.

In the field of broadcasting also contributed in 1945 when the Ministry of Communications and Public Works commissioned a study on the volume, noise and attenuation of electrical communication systems in order to establish the legal units of reference in quadrant of the radius. In 1946 González Camarena engineer was authorized to operate “weather balloons” in Mexico City, coming up with its radio equipment into the stratosphere. This studied the extent of the images transmitted by him. Four years later he played elaborate laws to regularize the functioning and operation of national radio stations where you could including television, FM, shortwave, long wave radio and facsimile.

In 1948 he founded the Laboratories Gon-Cam, where he went to work spontaneously, others radioexperimentadores.

The engineer works Guillermo González Camarena permeated the field of medicine when they began to use television to black and white, then colors, as medium of instruction for the subject.

 First internationalization of Mexican color system [edit] In 1950 Columbia College in Chicago requested the production of the television system the young Mexican researcher and exported to neighboring television sets manufactured in Mexico. In January 1951 he was commissioned by Radio Panamericana, SA, to identify and locate the first relay station for Mexican television, which was installed in Atzomoni between Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl, a place better known as Paso de Cortes.

In 1951 he married Marie Antoinette Becerra Acosta, whom he met in the XEW-AM when she came to ask for autographs famous speakers of the time. Camarena Becerra’s family fathered two sons, William and Joseph Arthur, an engineer who spent Saturday and Sunday were full.

 Implementation of the system to color and annexation to Mexican Telesistema [edit] A mid-1960s there was a boom in the purchase of TVs, so the engineer Vazquez Tapia, with Channel 5, merged with Channel 2 and then to channel 4 to form Telesistema Mexican, and was appointed technical adviser. In 1960 conducted the first test recording in Guadalajara for the transmission of color image, received with great welcome by viewers tapatíos.

In November 1962 authorized the engineer González Camarena color transmission in January 1963 and the 21st of that month began color broadcasts on Channel 5, whose official name is XHGC (in her honor, for the last letters are the initials of Gonzalez Camarena) with the infant Paradise series. The engineer insisted on television that evening was to serve primarily children, for those who always showed great interest in addition it is believed that the engineer González Camarena was never given any pay for all their work and inventions, himself requested that, in exchange for their hard work, he created a television special for children, which would be on Channel 5.

The engineer’s primary concern was that his inventions could be enjoyed by the general public, including people with low incomes. Since there was no international standard for color television, on 6 May 1963 the Mexican inventor presented his system simplified bicolor, which was well received internationally, it also resolved the economic aspect for future buyers represented precisely because their system was based on black and white at the time (since it was implemented in other countries, delayed the arrival of color for almost a decade more to them). With the same objective, became interested in making receivers on their own, and in 1964 appeared the first model of large-scale manufacturing. The following year established an agreement with Majestic factory, owned by Emilio Azcarraga Vidaurreta, in May 1965 and started selling color television sets and built in Mexico.

A Guillermo Gonzalez Camarena was concerned that its system was used to teach literacy and in coordination with the Ministry of Education, designed what later became known as the Educational System Telesecundaria.

Bicolor system finally submitted its simplified in the New York World’s Fair.

 Death [edit] On 18 April 1965, he returned to inspect the repeater transmitter on Channel 5 in the Cerro de Las Lajas, Veracruz, to extend the signal generated television network in the city of Mexico to the eastern country, found his death aged 48 in a car accident. Televised news of the fatal event and memorial events. As a sign of mourning, disrupted television transmissions throughout the day.

 Crisis of the future of color in Mexico [edit] After the physical disappearance of González Camarena, Mexican television went through a crisis to select the color system that would use future television broadcasts in the country, since several countries had their systems color development: Germany, Britain, France and USA.

Mexico already had their own, but after the inventor bicolor simplified system could no longer implement it on a larger scale, and, coupled with the proximity of the Mexico Olympics of 1968, Mexican Telesistema was at the crossroads of deciding which was the system transmission to be implemented for everyone in these Olympics: it had the color system PAL / SECAM French, the NTSC standard of U.S. origin and the system bicolor Gonzalez Camarena. On board, a group of engineers could not agree with Mexican President Emilio Azcarraga Vidaurreta Telesistema since Azcarraga had supported until the end of his days at Guillermo Gonzalez Camarena in all his projects and inventions for television, but had to decide on the future of color transmission in Mexico after the death of its creator. Thus, taking into account that there was little chance that someone will continue to development in large-scale implementation in a short time the color of the Mexican system, it was decided to use the NTSC, which is used to date by the Americas and parts of Asia.
