Ran Harnevo, president of AOL Video, is scheduled to speak at South by Southwest Interactive Tuesday morning on digital content evolution and emerging technologies.

Adweek caught up with Harnevo at the Driskell Hotel, the historic hospitality spot in downtown Austin, Texas. Check out the Instagram video below, where he explains why he's jazzed about his department's future in connected TVs. (Jargon translation for the viewers at home: When the AOL exec mentions "UI and UX" at the very end, he's using abbreviations for user interface and user experience.)
