Envivio hires VP to oversee Web video
Envivio has hired Matt Smith as vice president of Internet television.
Smith had been vice president and chief systems architect at Inlet Technologies, and subsequently an architect at Cisco Systems following the Inlet acquisition. Prior to Inlet, Smith served as a video architect and evangelist for Yahoo.
"Delivering TV everywhere over unmanaged networks is both exciting and worrisome for service providers and content owners," Smith said. "Along with the opportunity for new revenue comes uncertainty, which is why companies turn to the experience and technologies provided by Envivio. I have watched as Envivio has set the pace for innovation in this market, and I am very excited to now be part of the team that is making it possible to deliver high-quality, protected and reliable multi-screen TV services to every screen over any network."
"We are seeing a significant increase in the demand for multi-screen TV headend solutions, and some of the greatest innovation is occurring in the creation of new business models and services that take advantage of delivery over the Internet," said Julien Signès, president and CEO of Envivio.
