    Synacor, leading provider of next-gen startpages, TV Everywhere solutions, and cloud-based services across multiple devices for cable, satellite, telecom, and consumer electronics companies, today announced that Steve Davi has been appointed as senior vice president, software engineering. Prior to Synacor, Davi worked for SeaChange International, Banyan Systems, and Data General, gaining proven experience in cloud software engineering, digital media, HTML5, over-the-top, mobile, and advertising monetization models.

    Scott Bailey, Synacor COO, said, "We are excited to have Steve Davi, an accomplished software engineer and respected team leader, join Synacor as we continue expanding the multiscreen environment for pay-TV providers, increasing subscriber engagement and presenting new revenue opportunities and growth internationally. During this unprecedented time of transformation in digital entertainment, Steve's 25 years of software experience and insight will ensure Synacor continues innovating and launching new products so our customers can provide subscribers their favorite shows, music, games, news, and cloud services, all in one place, any time, anywhere, on the device of their choosing."

    Previously, Davi worked at SeaChange International for 15 years, most recently holding the position of chief technology officer where he was responsible for overall software technology architecture and company strategy related to product design, system planning, and industry standards. During his time at SeaChange, Davi led the development of several video-on-demand, content management, search, and social media products, including its AssetFlow and Adrenalin platforms. Davi also managed the company's first VOD product, first Recording System deployment, and first ads in VOD deployment, as well as the company's multiscreen video software team. Prior to SeaChange International, Davi worked in software engineering leadership and contributor roles at Banyan Systems and Data General. Davi obtained his BS in Computer Science from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and holds an MS in Computer Science from Northeastern University.

    "Synacor has quickly emerged as the leader in innovating next-gen startpages, TV Everywhere, cloud services and identity management, and I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Synacor's world-class team of engineers, developers, and product managers during this breakthrough era in multi-device engagement," stated Davi. "Giving pay-TV subscribers what they want results in more monetization opportunities for both Synacor and our customers. Look for our software strategy to allow us to accelerate and continue to lead in identity management, cloud services, TV Everywhere, and digital advertising."
