Radiogram Equipment and Furniture

In British English, a radiogram, technically known as a radiograph, is simply a piece of furniture which simultaneously both records and plays audio. The term radiogram is, more or less, a synonym of gramophone and radio. The corresponding terminology in American English would be radio scanner. Radiographs reached their zenith of commercial popularity in the post-world war era, facilitated by a widely increasing interest in old recorded sound.

Radiogram furniture is not quite the same as conventional furniture. It is not the same thing, for instance, as furniture meant exclusively for the purpose of recording sounds and then playing them back at a later stage. Radiogram furniture was originally designed to fit inside a radiology room. This was because it was initially assumed that since the room was essentially a recording room, it would make sense to have furniture that recorded all its audio output. In fact, it was not uncommon to have a gramophone, radio, and recording player in one room.

Radiogram stands for ‘radial enquire’, ‘radio signal’, ‘record player’ or even ‘message transmitted.’ A Radiogram simply means ‘an enquire’, or ‘a message transmitted.’ Radiogram equipment includes a receiver and speakers. The user then feeds a message into the receiver using the appropriate keypad.

Since it was originally intended to be used inside a Radiogram studio, it was called a ‘radio telepole.’ The reason for this was that it operated by receiving radio waves and converting them to electrical signals that could be interpreted by the receiving receiver. This technology was developed in Radiogram studios as opposed to hospitals where it may have been impractical to mount a huge radio telephone, and so smaller radiogram studios were set up. Smaller and more compact Radiogram equipment comprises a hand held receiver and speaker. Radiogram equipment also includes a gramophone, radio, or phonographic tape, and a speaker system.

As opposed to a mammogram, or radiography, which is the application of radiography to measure the amount of radiation that has been absorbed, a Radiogram uses a photographic image produced by the Radiogram equipment itself. A photographic image produced by the Radiogram machine can show fine details or larger areas of a subject. The size of the subject being measured can be set with the help of the controls on the Radiogram keyboard.

Radiogram furniture can vary greatly. The cost will depend upon a number of factors including the type and quality of the materials used. Radiogram furniture is now available to meet the demands of both commercial and residential users. Some Radiogram furniture is now designed specifically to meet specific Radiogram needs.
