Synacor, Inc.

Synacor, the market leader powering next-gen portals and TV Everywhere services reaching over 30 million high-speed Internet subscribers on behalf of cable, satellite, telecom and consumer electronics companies, today announced its CEO Ron Frankel is addressing the America’s Growth Capital’s 2011 Digital Media, Internet and Mobile Conference in Boston, MA at 12:15 PM on Tuesday, September 20, Westin Copley Place. The conference features over 250 of the leading public and private emerging growth companies and attracts over 750 attendees. Frankel’s session, “TV Everywhere,” will discuss the current landscape of the video industry with a focus on TV Everywhere, including

  •     Why authentication is key to connecting programmers with operators as well as delivering the best possible search and discovery experience for subscribers so they can experience online entertainment anytime, anywhere, across multiple smart devices;
  •     How Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Amazon and iTunes will increasingly be viewed as complementary services rather than competition to cable; and
  •     Why TV Everywhere means Pay TV is here to stay, and speculation over “cutting-the-cord” has been largely overblown.

Additional speakers include Bill Wheaton, Akamai; Jan Steenkamp, Irdeto; Keith Kocho, Cisco; Richard Bullwinkle, Rovi; and moderator Will Richmond, Broadband Directions/VideoNuze.

Ron Frankel has contributed articles to Mashable examining the future of TV and the importance of metadata. In addition, Synacor recently published a comprehensive white paper that details the fundamentals and requirements of an end-to-end TV Everywhere solution.
