Short Take: Zenith to create interactive TV set

TeleCruz Technology, which develops interactive TV technology, has signed a product development agreement with Zenith Electronics.

The TV sets, which are scheduled to launch in the first half of 2001, will offer services, such as email, chat rooms, Net browsing and e-commerce, without the need for a separate set-top box. TeleCruz is based in San Jose, Calif.
