History and Strategy

Even before we launched nablet, our team created some of today's most-used codecs. Since then we've expanded to provide a comprehensive suite of tools for broadcasting, OTT, post-production and related industries.

nablet GmbH was founded in 2011 in Aachen, Germany. Our core team was originally part of the founding team of another video technology company, and developed codecs that are used widely around the world. After that company went through several acquisitions, we split off to form nablet.

We launched two main strategies:

  • Create even better codecs and related technologies by reacting to new challenges like new CPU architectures and the increasing popularity of cloud solutions.
  • Respond to industry needs and create a variety of technology modules that would work together as part of an ecosystem.

In parallel we developed mediaEngine, a multi-format transcoding engine that serves a broad customer base and works with the nablet ecosystem.

Now, nablet has a wide product line that is used daily in mission-critical applications.  We are leveraging that traction to expand our client base and profitability.
