Magor was founded by Sir Terence Matthews in 2007 to develop a software-based technology solution to provide a high quality collaboration product enabled by high definition video at a disruptive price point. Magor's visual collaboration solution seeks to capitalize on what management has identified as a significant shift in the legacy videoconferencing market, from hardware-centric to software based solutions. This shift is driven in part by the continuing availability of more powerful, commercially available IT hardware at lower cost points, combined with the move to cloud-based service delivery architectures and business models.
The Magor visual collaboration software has a transcoderless architecture that enables ad-hoc multipoint calling utilizing scalable video coding, while also providing a wide breadth of interoperability with legacy video conferencing systems and consumer solutions such as Skype™.
These characteristics, when combined with Magor's collaboration model enable people to share a range of collaboration tools in a natural and productive way, further enhancing the value of visual collaboration over legacy video conferencing.
Magor's transcoderless architecture and scalable video coding is a software solution that management believes will challenge the traditional videoconferencing market.
