For nearly a decade, Peter Hoddie has played a central role in defining, building and promoting Apple’s trailblazing QuickTime technology. While at Apple, Mr. Hoddie was awarded the designation of Distinguished Engineer for his work on QuickTime.

In 2000, he founded Generic Media to radically simplify both the publishing and viewing of digital media by introducing the first on-demand, real-time media transcoding server. While at Generic Media, Mr. Hoddie, in partnership with Sony, helped to create the gMovie Player, the leading video technology for Palm handhelds.

In 2002, Mr. Hoddie co-founded Kinoma to develop a next-generation virtual software platform. Kinoma products became known for combining a thoughtfully designed user experience with leading-edge technology. Kinoma software was widely deployed by Palm, Sony and Sling Media. Kinoma was acquired in 2011 by Marvell Semiconductor, where Mr. Hoddie continues to lead the development of the Kinoma Platform.

Mr. Hoddie contributed to the MPEG-4, JPEG-2000 and SMIL standards. He is named as an inventor on 10 issued patents.
