Inhe installed and operated the wireless equipment on a ship hunting seals off Newfoundland and Labradorand used the technology to relay the first remote medical diagnosis from the ship's doctor to a radio operator at Belle Isle with an infected tooth.
The following year, he led two other operators at the Wanamaker station in an effort to confirm the fate of the Titanic.
Some researchers question whether Sarnoff was at the telegraph key at all. By the time of the Titanic disaster inSarnoff was a manager of the telegraphers. That same year Marconi won a patent suit that gave it the coastal stations of the United Wireless Telegraph Company.
Sarnoff also demonstrated the first use of radio on a railroad line, the Lackawanna Railroad Company's link between Binghamton, New Yorkand Scranton, Pennsylvania ; and permitted and observed Edwin Armstrong 's demonstration of his regenerative receiver at the Marconi station at Belmar, New Jersey.

Schemes for television had long been proposed well before World War I but with no practical outcome. Sarnoff was determined to lead his company in pioneering the medium and met with Westinghouse engineer Vladimir Zworykin in At the time Zworykin was attempting to develop an all-electronic television system at Westinghouse, but with little success.
Zworykin had visited the laboratory of the inventor Philo T. Farnsworthwho had developed an Image Dissector, part of a system that could enable a working television.
Zworykin was sufficiently impressed with Farnsworth's invention that he had his team at Westinghouse make several copies of the device for experimentation. Sarnoff opted to fund Zworkyin's research, most likely well-aware that Zworykin was underestimating the scope of his television effort.
Seven years later, in lateZworykin's photograph appeared on the cover of the trade journal Electronics, holding an early RCA photomultiplier prototype. The photomultipliersubject of intensive research at RCA and in Leningrad, Russia, would become an essential component within sensitive television cameras.
On April 24,RCA demonstrated to the press a working iconoscope camera tube and kinescope receiver display tube an early cathode ray tubetwo key components of all-electronic television.
On the road to success they encountered a legal battle with Farnsworthwho had been granted patents in for his solution to broadcasting moving pictures.
