In a joint effort to tap into China's nascent digital TV broadcast market, a consortium of eight Israeli companies will jointly offer a DTV solution for the Chinese market.

China currently has 120 million cable TV subscribers, and a government-backed initiative will complete the introduction of DTV broadcasts in China by 2015. The government is also gearing up for a big DTV push in advance of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.

The eight companies are: Bitband, VBox Communications Ltd, Orca Interactive, Scopus Network Technologies, VCON Telecommunications, Kramer Technologies, NDS Group and TMT Coaxial Networks.

Oded Arbel, the Israeli commercial attach in Beijing, said comparatively small Israeli companies alone can provide only partial solutions, but a consortium offering broader solutions increased the chances of success in China.
