Interactive TV developer itaas has increased head count by 10% in the U.S. and India, and has moved into a bigger facility in the technology corridor of Delhi as the company anticipates growth in the year ahead from cable and IPTV deployments.
"We recognized the need for software development that enables content to cross over multiple technology platforms and have been building our teams to anticipate this growth," itaas CEO and president Vibha Rustagi said in a statement. "With multiple technology labs and advanced development teams in the US and India, we are providing efficient development for our expanding customer base."
In India, itaas has moved to larger facilities in Noida, a technology center in the Delhi metropolitan area, with advanced technology teams and an expanded lab for both cable and IPTV systems. According to itaas vice president of marketing and strategy Jim Elayan, the company has hired about 10 new employees recently, to stand at about 110 employees, and expects to fill a few more positions in the next few months.
"We do not plan to add any more locations in the U.S., though further expansion of both the U.S. and India facilities is being considered as we expand labs and testing facilities," he said.
Duluth, Ga.-based Itaas provides support to ITV application developers and operators, as well as software development and testing services for MSOs, including Time Warner Cable and Cox Communications. The firm has licensed Comcast's TVWorks EBIF platform and offers support to other operators deploying the software.
