About Ofer Shapiro
Ofer Shapiro, Vidyo’s co-founder and CEO, has been an innovative force at the heart of two major architectural transformations in the videoconferencing industry seen over the past two decades. Ofer was integrally involved in the development of the H.323 specification and the first IP based multi-point control unit architecture, which provided a platform for multi-point conferences that were unconstrained by bandwidth limitations of an externally programmable Gatekeeper, enabling the transition from ISDN to IP transport. The products introduced by Ofer during his tenure at RADVISION were adopted by Cisco, Tandberg and Polycom, and reached almost 100% market share. A decade later, he innovated the use of Scalable Video Coding for video conferencing and led the development of a new media relay based architecture designed for affordable scale and extended reach over unmanaged IP networks and general purpose computing devices. The Vidyo architecture has been hailed and accepted as the market shifting innovation necessary to address the burgeoning $19B personal telepresence market. Ofer is a named inventor on 20 issued and 19 pending patent families and has 14 years of experience in bringing innovations in this field to successful, wide-scale adoption.
