Mediafly’s CTO Joins a Panel of Experts to Discuss Reliability and Security at the NAB Cloud Computing Conference

Chicago, IL, April 03, 2013 –(–
NAB Show, held April 6-11 in Las Vegas, is the world’s largest electronic media show covering filmed entertainment and the development, management and delivery of content across all mediums. On Monday, April 8, an expert panel will address the remaining pitfalls that cause producers and distributors to resist migrating to the cloud. Placing content on the cloud heightens concerns around the secure exchange of media. This coupled with the need for reliable access to content regardless of whether you are online or offline makes this a key discussion to attend if you want to understand how these obstacles are being overcome. The panel will include the Chief Technology Officer of Mediafly, Jason Shah. Mediafly works with three of the four major broadcast networks and has addressed these issues first hand.

Jason joined Mediafly in May 2010 and oversees all product management, engineering, and services. His duties include product management, platform and integration engineering, customer delivery, and product marketing. Jason brings a strong background in client engagement and software product management, with experience from Neuros Technology, Bain & Company, and Trilogy Software.

Chicago Tribune Jason Shah was quoted in an article in the Sunday Chicago Tribune discussing Motorola’s efforts at a turnaround in its cellular phone division through investment in Android.

“What [Motorola is] doing is trying to provide tools for free to developers, so those developers will be more inclined to focus on Motorola,” said Jason Shah, the developer behind the Android application for Mediafly Inc., a Chicago company that aggregates podcasts and makes them available on Web-connected devices.
