A technology and open standard developed by Intel for transmitting World Wide Web pages at approximately 100Kbps in the vertical blanking interval of a standard television signal. While not supporting two way communication, Intercast will allow broadcasters and advertisers to provide text, graphics, and still images to home PC's. The technology requires a television receiver and a chip that converts the signal from analog to digital. Backed by PC manufacturers, broadcasters, online service providers and software developers, Intercast broadcasts are planned for nationwide availability in 1996.
