VOGO over time

A tale of innovation and growth


It’s about three engineer friends: Christophe CARNIEL, Pierre KEIFLIN, and Daniel DEDISSE, all from the world of video. The first two founded NETIA, a company specialised in developing software for radio and television channels, while the third joined them later to head up the company’s technical division. NETIA was sold 15 years after its creation. The three friends developed a strong bond, especially when it came to their common passion…sport.


Christophe, Pierre, and Daniel were once again all at a football match together: one of them missed THE goal of the match while the other two would’ve liked to have seen it again. The ephemeral memory of the goal was already fading…This was not the first time these frustrations had come up.

The idea took form : why not create a system that would allow a spectator to become a TV viewer? The comfort of video combined with the excitement of being at the heart of the event. This is how VOGO came to be in 2013.

« I did not see the action… »

« I was too far from the action…»

« I would like to see the action through a different angle…»

« On TV, I can see it again in slow motion…»


The VOGO solution can distribute video through smartphones, tablets and computers to thousands of people gathered in a single venue. After two years of R&D, the technology generated 4 patents, filed in France and abroad.
The disruptive technology used is ground breaking. VOGO consistently invests in R&D projects, which are the driving force behind the company.


The sports event market being the most obvious choice, VOGO launched its VOGO SPORT application in 2014 for the European Judo Championships.



After successfully covering events in 2015, VOGO secured in 5 times several millions of euros to fund its international development and R&D expansion. The company has been listed on Euronext Growth Paris since November 30, 2018.


VOGO is positioned on a global market with converging expectations. In response to local needs, the company is working to establish an indirect sales network, as well as a network of integrators, like PANASONIC Japan, distributors, and agents.

With the acquisition of the Vokkero® business in October 2019, an international reference in professional sports audio communication systems, VOGO benefits from a new accelerator for its development in this market.
