About Iddo PoP

Iddo PoP (aka Iddo Shai aka me) is an online video specialist, producer, writer and DJ based in Brooklyn, NY.

Over my career, I held editorial and product management positions in various media outlets in Israel and the US, such as Ha’aretz, Fox WNYW, Sony’s Crackle.com and BabyFirst TV. These days I serve as Director of Product at Kaltura, one of the fastest growing OTT video platforms. As part of my role I  also occasionally write about online video for publications as The Guardian Content Network, TechCrunch, AdExchanger and others.

In 2008 I received my BA in film and television from Tel Aviv University. In 2010 I completed the Communication Management Master’s Program at the University of Southern California where I primarily examined the shifts in the television industry. My Master’s thesis focused on cord-cutting and how young viewers (18-33) watch online television services as Netflix, Hulu, Boxee (R.I.P) and Apple TV. This led to my current position at Kaltura where I help build disruptive OTT products that are transforming the TV experience and its business models.

When I am not managing products, blog, stream TV, listen to Morning Becomes Eclectic or work on my downward facing dog – I craft soulful mixtapes and upload them to MixCloud.
