EVP, Corporate Engineering and Technology
Cablevision Systems Corp

Kanouff is most comfortable sitting on the bleeding edge of technology – and she’s been behind some of the industry’s most innovative ways to connect consumers with content. It’s fitting, then, that after her departure from SeaChange she segued to a role overseeing Cablevision’s strategic technology goals. Kanouff, who holds several patents for VOD-related technologies, now plays a key role both developing the MSO’s new consumer-facing technologies and bringing them to market.

What’’s your favorite digital toy and why? My favorite digital toy continues to be my iPhone. It is my email, my GPS, my phone, my alarm clock, my computer, and of course my source of video content – linear and On Demand. It’s amazing how personal devices have changed our lives.
