While a student at Brigham Young University, Philo T. Farnsworth was able to find financial backing for his proposed development of a television system. This was in 1925. In 1928, he was able to demonstrate his image-dissector camera, which turned a scene into electric currents by electronic rather than mechanical means. The Philco Corporation assumed development of the system and Farnsworth soon was able to demonstrate clear moving images: the first television camera. Philco withdrew its support and soon after Farnsworth moved to Ft. Wayne, IN, World War II began. He aided in work on radar during the war years. Following the war, his company became the research arm of the International Telephone and Telegraph Company. Farnsworth accumulated more than 300 patents.
