Joyce Hergenhan Auditorium
The Tully Center and Newhouse School hosted Aereo founder and president, Chet Kanojia, last week in the Hergehan Auditorium for a conversation: “Aereo: the Future was Then — a discussion with media tech pioneer Chet Kanojia.”
Aereo was a groundbreaking online television platform that enabled consumers to record and watch live HD broadcast television on virtually any type of Internet-connected device via a cloud-based OTA antenna and DVR. The company was brought to court and shut down shortly after the United States Supreme Court ruled against it in a copyright lawsuit brought by a consortium of entertainment companies.
