Chairman and CEO - Matt Vidmar
Matt has over 29 years of experience as technology entrepreneur in broadcast, internet and media industry. He founded Connexion Exports in 1991, ON-AIR Systems in 1997, Vision Group in 2005 and Vision Technologies in 2014.
In 1999 Matt realised that for the next generation entertainment, interactive on-demand solution is required for business growth. Shortly after, in 2000 in Mumbai, the pioneering IPTV/OTT concept was deployed being the world’s first IPTV service based on WM and the very first 1GbE broadband service deployed in collaboration with MTNL and BSNL.
In 1998 Matt introduced the ‘ON-AIR Server’ to the broadcast market -the revolutionary "Channel-in-a-Box" solution -an Integrated Video Server with built in playout automation, interactive graphics, vision mixing and shared storage, enabling content transfers via the computer network. Technology has been harnessed to simplify multichannel TV workflow and drastically reduce the running costs. Within five years this approach became de-facto standard across the broadcast industry.
In 2006 Matt launched XtremeCDN™ -the very first totally integrated cloud based 'Content Management Delivery System', centralizing and simplifying linear TV and on-demand broadcast across traditional DVB and new global OTT IP fabric. This award winning technology was the first in delivering advanced features like 'Channel-from-the-cloud', 'Catch-up-TV' and 'Forward-TV'.
In 2013, Matt introduced Perception OVP™ -the world's first end-to-end unified CDN/OTT/IPTV ‘Platform-in-a-Box'. The platform received a number of industry awards and continues to be technology leading solution implementing revolutionary unicast/multicast CDN technology ready to power ‘Sixth Generation TV’ on wired and mobile LTE networks.
