Mattias Gordon makes Sweden's first vignette film for iPhones.

“I try to encompass all that can be in an iPhone direct transmission. The focus is not on technology but on the metaphorical “waves on the water” that are spreading all over the world. These waves are building a framework from the thread of life that the Internet has become; filled with the pulsating power of life. This thread grows continuously and, through new, intelligent shoots it will meet and conquer the world”  - Mattias Gordon at Hello Films: www.gordon.se 

February 2010
CloudBox Presenter was released

Wallen Media AB used this tool for the first time, to transmit a meeting of Landskrona's Town Council.

Örjan: - “I have not used such a simple and powerful tool before. Simple hand operation is very important in stressful production situations. Flash format meant that the Council was reaching many of the citizens. It feels good to offer the latest technology to my customers. Really easy.”


Using Ubuntu Linux, the Carson McDonald segmenter and open source software, ungap was able to realize Live iPhone streaming only weeks after the official protocol and iPhone update was released by Apple.

Anders has been in business since 1993 and works on technical development in broadcasting and media.

"My career"
Anders: "I began my career at Swedish Radio in 1993 after having studied Electrical Engineering at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology for six years. It was a degree project to evaluate a new DSP (digital signal processor) and to build a test bed for digital signals. As digital radio (DAB) was developed Swedish Radio's expertise in this area expanded. Meanwhile, at Swedish Radio, I was involved in many projects, including the now retired sound sharing system Tage, that was one of the most successful. I received a prize for it at the Comdex 1999 computer trade fair in Chicago. Being so close to Bill Gates was thrilling. After Swedish Radio, I worked briefly at a company that developed computer systems for radio broadcasting. There was great confidence in multi-channel publishing at that time.

Watch the YouTube-film from that period. This was at the height of the dot-com era!


It was during this period that ideas around simple, smart tools for web TV began to take shape, ideas that came in handy when I started my own business. In addition, we were ahead and transmitted web TV from BCC's premises - already in 1999!

After my time at BCC, I started my own company. I developed StreamSync in collaboration with Yra AB and Qbrick AB. Around this time we had our first child and so I worked from home a lot. I loved it.

Two friends, Clas and Anders, and I started BigFun. We had ideas for interactive radio. We worked hard on technology and marketing. Swedish Radio and Radio Denmark showed interest but the timing was not right so we put our ideas on the shelf. Maybe it is time to take them down again? www.bigfun.


We were on vacation on Elba in Italy in 2004 when the phone rang and the CTO of PopCatcher wondered if I would like to work with them. I accepted and for four years I had totally new experiences in product development, entrepreneurship and how to work with Chinese manufacturers: www.popcatcher.com


Much of the experience from PopCatcher-time I took with me when I started started my own company again, in October 2009, under the name ungap. Now I focus on products and marketing with the goal of making a considerable impact in the industry!
