    The development of teletext started in the UK in the early 1970's after investigation into methods of broadcasting subtitles. It was clear that it would soon be economic to build, into every television receiver, LSI circuitry to decode and to display data transmitted during the blanking intervals of the broadcast television signal. Extensive research by the BBC, the IBA and members of BREMA* led t... View full abstract»

    It should be explained that the name Prestel* has been adopted by the British Post Office as the trade name for its development of viewdata. This paper describes both the conceptual and international aspects of viewdata as well as summarising specific details of the Prestel service now embarked upon in the United Kingdom.

    Videotex has provisionally become the generic name for interactive systems offering visual information services using a suitably modified or augmented home TV set, telephone and/or data networks, and videotex service centres. This paper starts by briefly introducing the videotex system concept and service possibilities. Examples of existing systems are also given. The main body of the paper consid... View full abstract»

    Broadcast teletext, as operated by the broadcasting authoriities in the UK has been available as a public service since 1974. As well as being an efficient means of decoding and displaying textual data, it was soon realised that the standard teletext decoder already contained many of the components required for a home computer: it has a character-generator for visual- display; a page-store, and a ...

    In this paper it is proposed to explore the extension of the UK Viewdata and Teletext systems primarily into the USA but also to Europe. The paper is complementary to the paper by N. E. Tanton, BBC, entitled 'UK Teletext ├é┬┐Evolution and Potential'. In adapting and extending an existing system it is worth recognising the basic starting points. For the UK Teletext and Viewdata systems these can be s... View full abstract»

    Teletext is a technology that has "arrived",, and is capable of providing the U.S. broadcast television audience with a wide variety of new services. CBS has therefore proposed a major test program to help determine appropriate technical standards. After obtaining a preliminary and informal opinion from the FCC that a request to conduct an over-the-air test of teletext systems would probably recei... View full abstract»

    The ability of consumers to access computer- stored general information is much further advanced in the United Kingdom than in the United States. This is largely . a result of the strong promotion of the teletext1,2 and viewdata3,4 concepts by the British Broadcasting Corporation and British Post Office, respectively. These strong government programs have resulted in the establishment of transmiss... View full abstract»

    The prime aim of the Teletext and Viewdata systems in the UK has been to create a significant new market in the home for digital systems based around the domestic colour tv set. To achieve a major penetration of the market, particular attention was taken in formulating the systems specification to achieve simplicity for user operation and minimum decoder costs. At the same time, considerable degre... View full abstract»

    Various systems for utilising the spare time in the vertical blanking interval of a normal television waveform have been proposed as a means of transmitting additional information for engineering tests and for other purposes. Broadly speaking, none of these systems have been viable for home use because of the cost of decoding the information. The advent of large scale integrated circuits (LSI) has... View full abstract»

    Teledata systems implemented as either television add-ons or new set features will require relatively complex integrated circuits. Consumer acceptance of these systems will be a sensitive function of their price. Thus, the various IC technologies must be evaluated with respect to achieving adequate performance at minimum cost. We have investigated the feasibility of N-channel MOS for teledata seri... View full abstract»
