Davi, who also worked previously at Banyan Systems and Data General, will help the TV Everywhere technology provider with his expertise in cloud software engineering, HTML5, advanced advertising and over-the-top video, Synacor said.

During his 15 years at SeaChange, Davi helped the company develop several video-on-demand, content management, search and social media products.

"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," Davi said in a statement.
