In this podcast, I talk to Ashwin Navin, CEO of Flingo.

I've known Ashwin since his days as the cofounder of BitTorrent. When I recently caught up with him in Vegas at the NAB conference, I was very interested to hear about some of the stuff his new company was doing to enable synchronized multiscreen viewing using a technology called ACR, or automated content recognition (think Shazam, but for video content). So interested, in fact, I asked him to be a guest on the podcast.

Ashwin I talk about the technology Flingo has built, the broader ACR landscape, as well as some of the backstory of the company including their pivot and the resulting funding round from Mark Cuban.
