DigiTracker is a world first for digital interactive TV. The product is

parents to see the current location of their children's mobile phone on their
TV screen. It will also allow text or SMS messages to be sent to that phone.

systems to enable the plotting of a mobile location on a map and display it on
the TV thus allowing for the first time ever, parents to know exactly where
their children are at any time.

concerned about the safety, well-being and location of their children can know
exactly where they are," said John Allen, CEO Digisoft.tv.
"This is the start of a whole new age for TV as the entire interaction
takes place from the armchair at home, while watching a TV show, using nothing
more than the TV remote control. Digisoft's platform enables the rapid
