Originally called Exponent Software, our company was founded in Geneva, Switzerland, in 2000 to develop and promote original software tools linked to the professional communication market.


It has since moved to Bristol (UK) and now operates  under the name MediaGun Ltd.

Our philosophy, "technology made friendly" is present at every decision we make. Because, as we all know, technology is NOT friendly by nature, we see it as a genuine added value to MAKE IT friendly to the public.

This concern is found throughout MediaGun, where every detail is geared to give the user maximum efficiency, safety, and pleasure.


Daniel Gerchman (

Since 1983, Daniel has been involved in more than 3000 projects of all sizes for multinationals, international organisations and NGOs as well as smaller, local companies.  (see testimonials)


Passionately involved with multimedia since the very early days, he developed a keen interest in the "human interface" while participating in and designing many projects in education, interactive games, musical encyclopaedia, events, congresses etc.


Today, this know-how is expressed in MediaGun's interface.

As part of his daily routine, he has also been handling numerous file formats and codecs over a number of years. This is the environment where the initial idea of MediaGun originated.
