Constantin Perskyi
Constantin Perskyi (Константин Дмитриевич Перский) (2 June 1854 - 5 April 1906) was a Russian scientist who is credited with coining the word television in a paper read (in French) at the International World Fair in Paris on 25 August 1900 at the 1st International Congress of Electricity which ran from 18 to 25 August. At the time, he was Professor of Electricity at the Artillery Academy of Saint Petersburg. His paper referred to the work of other experimenters in the field, including Nipkow and Bachmetiev (Порфирий Иванович Бахметьев), who were attempting to use the photoelectric properties of selenium as the basis for their inventions.
It is likely, considering the relative dates of various historical documents, that German experimenters first coined the word Fernsehen, which the Russians then translated to televidenie, and which Perskyi then translated from Russian into French as télévision. This was immediately reported in The Electrician magazine as television.

TeleVision History: Electromechanical television
The beginnings of mechanical television can be traced back to the discovery of the photoconductivity of the element selenium by Willoughby Smith in 1873, the invention of a scanning disk by Paul Gottlieb Nipkow in 1884 and John Logie Baird's demonstration of televised moving images in 1926. As a 23-year-old German university student, Paul Nipkow proposed and patented the first electromechanical television system in 1884.
