Vsoft has joined the e.Biscom consortium of companies to bring interactive television to Milan. Vsoft's VideoClick@Home software will let Milanos surf the Web, order products and even pizza while watching television. Customers will also be able to bookmark their favorite information sources. Vsoft offers home video services like VoD and personal video recording.

"Vsoft is very excited about this opportunity," Yuval Agami, director of strategic sales, Vsoft told CED. "We're pleased to be included in this unique and revolutionary installation."

Other companies making up the project are Metroweb, FastWeb, Video Portal, B2Biscom and e.Voci. Each company is responsible for a different part of the project, from infrastructure to content delivery.

"We expect deployment to continue and to cover all Italy in the next few years," Agami said.
