A Conversation with Shawn Carnahan

CTO & Co-Founder – Telestream

Switch began as an idea from our own developers and employees. We wanted a player that could open and play any file. We wanted to be able to inspect that file. And we wanted to be able to make changes to that file – all in one easy-to-use tool.
Listen to Shawn Carnahan, CTO of Telestream, talk about Switch and why Telestream is uniquely positioned to develop such a tool.
