A company conglomerate will develop ISDB software in Argentina
The Argentine software and IT service company chamber executed an agreement with the IT School of the National University of La Plata and the Terrestrial Digital TV Advising Council for the purpose of carrying out ISDB research, development and technical assistance projects. Gesta is a company conglomerate made up by 3Way, HarData, Lupa Corporation, Ryaco and Sofrecom.
Carlos Rolandelli, Ryaco General Manager, preferred not to talk about investments or profits. He told the local media that they were still in a research stage and that "it is very complicated to forecast figures". However, he assured that they had to invest in a laboratory once developments have moved forward.
"In the next years, people will talk about t-commerce or t-mail. However, what digital TV can offer today is relative interactivity, since no return channel has been developed yet", Rolandelli explained.
