Werft22 was founded in 1991 as the cooperative "Kunstdesign Werft22", which became the "Ideen Werft22 GmbH" in 1997 and was converted into "Werft22 AG" in 2003.

In 1991 we were inspired "to launch something". At the beginning of the 21st century we at the "Werft" learned to regard ourselves as a safe harbour in stormy times.

In the meantime, we have launched many projects, acquired customers and won prizes, and: we have still not foundered.

Werft22 developed the very first online video recorder in as early as 1998. This was used professionally for the first time by Swiss television under the name "SdreamBox" during the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

The further development "Sdreamland® Services" received the Swiss Technology Award in 2003 and was presented at the world's largest ITC fair, the CeBIT in Hanover. Later, the solution was licensed by the world's largest aircraft manufacturer.

At the Technopark® Aargau, Werft22 designed the Content Unlimited® solution – an architecture and portfolio of streaming, CDN and DRM software components. Content Unlimited® now proves its worth in daily use in news production for Swiss television and forms the technological basis for nanoo.tv.


Experimental operation of "nanoo.tv" began in the Swiss university environment in 2006, and served as a proof of concept for the copyright negotiations which started in 2007 to establish the legal basis for the use of films in lessons.

In 2010 Werft22 was awarded the European Seal of e-Excellence for this combination of high-technology and copyright.

Since 2011, together with industrial partners, Werft22 has managed the experimental spin off company "nanoo.tv". Self-supporting operation is ensured for all levels of education with "nanoo.tv".

Following the successful completion of extensive copyright negotiations, nanoo.tv EDU – the Swiss film platform for education – ultimately became the reference project for the "Gemeinsamen Tarif 9 III" joint tarif, which as of 1 January 2012 forms the legal basis for the use of films by teachers in schools and universities.


In 2012, the years of commitment to streaming technologies were rewarded with first place in the SWISS CLOUD Award and second place in the EuroCloud Award.

In 2014, Werft22 received the prestigious Worlddidac Award for its work on nanoo.tv.

At the start of 2015, the continued use of nanoo.tv in Swiss education was ensured after completion of a trial operation.

In 2015 and 2016 Werft22 is a negotiating partner in the renegotiation of the joint tariffs for educational use.

The domains nanoo.tv, nanoo.pro, nanoo.expert and the brands Sdreamland® Services, Content Unlimited® and nanoo® are the property of Werft22.
