This requirement addresses one primary research question: how stakeholders, who live in contexts extremely different from the users´ context, can design and implant Digital TV for diversity? Our aim is to describe the assessments and consensus related to users needs for cross-cultural stakeholders with limited prior knowledge of users context. A socio-technical analysis was done identifying technical-contextualsocial factors based on an organizational semiotic framework. The results lead to useful insights that can guide managers of multinational driven projects to define better integration strategies.
