Position: Cofounder, CEO, and chairman, Sling Media
Location: San Mateo, Calif.
Sling Media remains the dynamic engine of place-shifting content, allowing Slingbox owners to access their favorite TV shows, sporting events, and movies over whatever wireless network is available to their laptop or smart phone, wherever they happen to be.
Krikorian steered the Sling ship into deeper waters with its acquisition by EchoStar last year, while continuing to explore the frontier of place shifting with the upcoming Clip+Sling service, which successfully navigates the legal minefield of sharing content clips between users. We expect Krikorian to further expand the possibilities in the year to come with its SlingCatcher, which enables laptop owners to stream video from their PC to their TV.
Did You Know: Krikorian is a huge fan of TiVo.
