About NETINT

Timeline

We started NETINT with a big dream of combining the benefits of silicon with the quality and flexibility of software for video encoding using proprietary ASICs.

2002

The video streaming industry hadn’t seen a new ASIC-based transcoder since 2002.

CPU-based encoding costs continue to escalate for live streaming companies. Fast forward to today where costs have outright skyrocketed.

2015

NETINT founded to develop next-gen SoC solutions

2017

Alex Liu and Tao Zhong foresaw the need for ASIC-based transcoding

2018

NETINT launched its 1st commercially available ASIC-based transcoder, the T408

2019

Meta released its ASIC transcoder, Mount Shasta, for internal use only

2021

Google announced ARGOS, its ASIC-based transcoder exclusively for the YouTube platform

2021

NETINT launches Quadra, its 2nd Gen Smart VPU with AI and AV1

Comprised of visionaries and over achievers

NETINT’s engineering team is significantly smaller than the competition, consisting of 180 technical professionals, yet we successfully shipped two highly functional and market-proven ASICs in three years. We’re also the company with all the impressive firsts.

These weren’t run-of-the-mill transcoding ASICs either. NETINT’s first ASIC, the Codensity G4, transcodes both H.264 and HEVC and draws 7 watts of power in full operation. The second generation G5 adds AV1 output, plus onboard scaling and overlay, and two AI engines. As you can see, AV1 and A1 are industry firsts.

Remarkably, Google, which far and away transcodes more video to the AV1 format than any site, still doesn’t have an ASIC that transcodes to AV1. Of course, we know where they can get one.

Dedicated World Changers

NETINT Technologies is a technology company operating in the silicon sector as an innovator of SoC solutions for video streaming and AI. NETINT was founded by an experienced team of silicon engineers, innovative scientists, video engineers, and streaming industry insiders. We have R&D facilities in Vancouver, Toronto, and Shanghai.
