CONVERGENCE INDIA DAY 1: Home is where IT's happening

March 18, '09; NEW DELHI; Visitors to the 17th annual edition of South Asia's largest tech show, Convergence India, might be forgiven if they break out into a soulful rendering of ' home sweet home'. The single biggest theme touted by exhibitors from 25 plus countries, seems to be home entertainment and networking.

Homecast -- the name of one of the participants, who manufactures digital satellite, terrestrial and cable broadcasting equipment-- almost said it all: digital video broadcasts to the home; digital set top boxes, then chips that go into the set top boxes .... the entire ecosystem was on show. Homecast (www.homecast.net) from Korea has an India representative: Novacom based in Hyderabad for its range of set top boxes and portable video recorders.

UK-based NDS ( www.nds.com) already has an India edge,a Bangalore-based R&D Centre, for its interactive TV and conditional access technology (Airtel Digital, Tata Sky, DEN and Hathway are customers).

From Oslo, Norway, Conax ( www.conax.com ) brought conditional access, digital and IPTV solutions -- with a mobile edge for those who wanted it.

Israel and US-based CopperGate (www.copper-gate.com ), was talking to almost all the Indian IPTV players -- its chips fuels some of the top international set top boxes -- and when powerline home networking is ratified as a standard later this year, the company hopesto be an early player (more about this in a separate tech report).

BSNL had one of the largest stalls in the show -- and other than 3G, IPTV was the big thing on show.

Elsewhere, China had one of the largest international contingents seen in an Indian tech show this year: Shenzhen, Suzhou and Shanghai had clusters of a dozen companies each, offering a wide variety of broadcast and entertainment hardware and back end systems.

We are still there and will follow up with Day #2 and #3 reports. Watch this space.

  "All of those are terribly wodred in view of the fact that they are statements, not questions. Why will a Xbox 360 wired controller not work on the computer where it is installed? is a proper format. THey could have been violated for that. Though, there are numerous reasons Qs are removed.1. It is a violation of the rules you will get an e-mail when that happens. If you want to know the wits for the violation, post Why was this question (answer) a violation? and add the original e-mail you got so the users can see the exact perspective. The experienced users here will clarify it to you. There is no statute of limitations on breaking the YA rules.2. There were zero answers when the time expired no e-mail sent.3. The BA was reported as a violation no e-mail sent.4. During voting, No Best Answer was chosen as the best answer no e-mail sent.Look in your e-mail, counting the spam folder, for a violation e-mail. If not there, check your activity tab in your profile. If nothing about a violation there, then the Q was removed for one of the additional reasons."
