Future of the Living Room
Thursday, January 7
Darren Feher is co-founder of Vizbee, a digital media start-up in the second screen and connected TV space that has invented a platform to allow viewers to automatically detect internet connected TVs and streaming boxes in order to cast content from their phone.
After a GE honed pedigree and nearly a decade in “Big Media” (as the EVP, CTO for NBC Universal) successfully transitioning traditional broadcast television and film production to multi-platform digital delivery, Feher moved to Silicon Valley where he grew a high-tech venture-backed start-up (Conviva) from raw science to a fully commercialized global business improving video streaming for iconic brands such as HBO, ESPN, Viacom, and VEVO. He has been a force behind many convention-breaking achievements including the creation of Hulu, the first “digital” Olympics coverage, and TV Everywhere.
Darren’s professional foundation was built on a pedigree as a West Point graduate and former military officer, refined as one of the youngest senior GE executives and broadened with the first hand experience running a fast growing silicon valley start-up.
