Comprised of Visionaries and Innovators

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. And though our engineering team is significantly smaller than our competition, we successfully shipped two market-proven ASICs in three years. We’re also the ones who delivered it all first.

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.
