A profile of Sling Media’s Jason Hirschhorn

WorldScreen.com has a profile of Jason Hirschhorn, President of Sling Media Entertainment Group. Jason is tasked with developing ‘entertainment experiences’ for the Sling Media products, and the first product from the Entertainment Group is the previously announced ‘Clip+Sling’ application, due later this year.

Beyond licensing content for Clip+Sling, Hirschhorn says that the company is also seeking out completed titles for a new video destination on the Internet. Ultimately, he says, the company wants to be “a bridge between all screens,” whether it’s a PC, television set or a mobile phone. “We are innovators. We love television, we love entertainment. The idea that you have to go home to watch your TV is an old notion. We do everything we do for the audience that loves their Slingbox. They really dictate what we do. Users want access to their video content wherever they are, whenever, however they want it. We want to be one of the systems that are leading that way.”

Sounds like a nice vision to me.
