sofatronic to go interactive at cable show

Hamburg, Germany-based sofatronic is crossing the ocean--and the continental U.S.--next month to visit The Cable Show in Los Angeles where it will demonstrate its interactive TV platform, ITV Kaleidoscope. From what the company says, the platform lowers the complexity and cost for third party developers to get into interactivity and will help grow a "creative developer community that fuels the market with user-friendly content."

Additionally, sofatronic said it will launch its ITV Dashboard that "converts the TV set into an innovative universal dock that brings the most popular online information services to the home television set."
