Barix AG is founded 2001 in Zürich, Switzerland by Johannes Rietschel. It all started with digital audio encoders and decoders for professional applications such as background music in retail. “My vision was to build a product that would fit the market and adapt to customer requests from there, instead of overthinking. That’s the premise on which Barix was founded,” said Johannes G. Rietschel, founder and current CTO. To set this into relation: 2001 is the year Apple introduces the first iPod product. The success of the following years will have much to do with Barix’s engineering products that solve real-world challenges in a pragmatic way.
