Claret, France - July 1, 2013 - Netia celebrates its 20th anniversary in July 2013. Founded in July 1993 in Claret by Christophe Carniel and Pierre Keiflin, both engineers from L'École des Mines d'Alès, the company has grown into a global supplier of software-based solutions for media asset management and delivery of audiovisual content.

Netia launched its first product range, News-Assist, in 1995 to enable audio storage, editing, and mixing. Its second product, Video-Assist, enabled France-based Euronews to deliver its broadcast programming in the language appropriate to each of its target regions. Over the subsequent years, Netia worked with key partners in broadcast, such as France Telecom, Sony and EVS, to design and deliver systems, including the U-Share product, that facilitate more efficient handling of digital A/V content and its metadata.

In 1999, following the acquisition of Audio Follow and its music planning and broadcast production technology, Netia introduced the first version of its acclaimed Radio-Assist system, which today is deployed in more than 40 countries. In 2000, the company enhanced Radio-Assist and secured major contracts with international radio and television broadcasters. Broadcasters from the United States, Africa, the Middle East and Asia continued to invest in Netia solutions in the next few years.

With the 2005 acquisition of Manreo, Netia completed its range of video products and laid the foundation for Netia Media Asset Management and then the Netia CMS (content management system), announced in 2010. Netia itself became part of the GlobeCast family in 2008. Netia today is a global company with 60 employees distributed across 40 countries.
