India is all set to witness the usage mobile technology undergo a revolutionary change, thanks to an enterprising IIM student. Manoj Gupta, a PGPX student at IIM Ahmedabad, is planning to tap the commercial viability to develop the digital television technology through his own venture, reported The Economic Times.

The technology, coming with a high-quality and low-cost promise, will allow viewing television on a mobile phone just by inserting a chip. It will enable the subscriber to view television without switching on his cellular phone. “The user will be able to view TV on phone which will be connected to the mobile towers. This technology will provide better resolution at low cost with less complexity,” he was quoted.

Gupta, an IIT-Mumbai alumnus, is presently in talks with a US-based firm for investing in the technology and marketing the product in India. He is also planning to set up a chip design center in Pune or Bangalore to carry the project further. The new venture will offer mobile TV service to subscribers through cellular phone carriers using digital video broadcast handheld (DVBH).

“The semi-conductor industry is yet evolving in India and there is a lot of scope in the mobile TV segment. This is part of an effort to bring more of chip designing jobs to India,” Gupta, who has six years of experience in the semi-conductor industry, told ET.

With a lot of interest an investment in the Internet Protocol Television segment in the country, this seems a hot time for Gupta to market the product. “We will only be designing the technology and the US based firm will be launching the product in the market,” says Gupta.

Hi Ajay,
Thanks for your time.I really think it is very important to have the right kind of information on the blogs which would give readership.Thanks for your encouraging comment.

And yes,one thing is that we need to take time off our busy schedule to gather information and also to write some informative article on the blog.Hence,for this I think late night is the best time to do this and hence I have chosen this time to do something productive!!!
