Talking points for TCS Clients

The early days of interactive online were a battle among not only competing businesses, but competing technology platforms. TCS was one of the few companies that actually implemented interactive sites across the dominant presentation standards - and on an international scale. The the technical and marketing implications were significant.

The primary types of platforms at the time were:

ASCII : plain text / no graphics, "global" standard
Teletel / Prestel : Alphamosaic (simplistic character-based block graphics), national standards (France and Britain, respectively)
Mactintosh : graphically sophisticated vectorgraphics, Black & White, product-specific (Apple)
NAPLPS: graphically sophisticated vectorgraphic, national standards (US and Canada)
