Our Team

nablet has a global team of expert management, sales, development, finance and support staff, with decades of combined experience and success in codecs and related technologies.

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

Our strategy was to create new codecs that were even better than the previous ones, then to respond to ever-changing industry needs and create a variety of technology modules that would work together as part of an ecosystem. In parallel, our plan was to develop mediaEngine, a multi-format transcoding engine that would reach a broad customer base and work with our 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.
