In 1996 Divitel’s foundations were laid, a Dutch digital video broadcasting and telecommunications company was formed. In the same year the medium internet emerged. Internet was in its infancy at that time, but soon became booming business. Several other companies doing digital video were founded in the same years, but thanks to the strong pioneering spirit of Divitel and its team, this company was the only -on digital video focused- corporation that survived the huge internet crash in 2003.
It took a lot of study with scientists and other specialists, but being the first company to realise a digital video connection was of course a very special and undertaking process! Divitel focused on the professional broadcast industry in the Netherlands at first, but shortly after the start foreign companies relied on the capabilities of Divitel as well.
