"We were impressed with how quickly and simply axle could be set up and implemented into the workflow for our online school... we began using it almost immediately."

Craig Reed, Berklee College of Music

axle is radically simple software for managing your video files through any web browser. It's not cloud software, though - the back end runs on a computer that you control, connected to the storage you already own.

axle is used every day by over three hundred media organizations, corporations, nonprofits, and universities around the world.



axle installs in less than an hour, and works with almost any type of storage and folder structure. There's no need to move your files or upload them to the cloud.


axle's so easy to use, everyone on the team can start working with it immediately, without extensive set-up or training.


axle is one of the most affordable MAMs on the market, putting media asset management in the hands of everyone.


Connect to axle through any web browser and access your media anywhere. axle 2016 includes a powerful mobile interface, perfect for smartphones.


Blazing fast search across your entire media catalogue, with powerful tools for advanced search to find exactly what you need.


axle automatically imports all the technical metadata from your media, and lets you add your own custom metadata as well.


Mark, comment, log, and approve clips. Our browser-based UI means clips edited in on workstations in the office can be reviewed and approved from home.


When you're ready, export your media directly into Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro, or Avid Media Composer (with our Pro configuration) to edit with all marking and comments in place.
