We make media management radically simple.
Our software connects with the storage you
already own, using your existing folder setup.
It doesn't force you to check in files to special
locations, or upload them to the cloud. And
you access it from any web browser or iPad.
Because there's an explosion of media being captured,
edited and distributed – and too few tools for managing it.
axle makes sense not only for broadcasters and post houses,
but also for corporate video groups, not-for-profits, universities,
churches, sports teams – anyone with videos and photos
to manage. It helps you get a handle on the media you have, across all your storage locations.
axle works with nearly any type of storage used for media files.
axle connects seamlessly with network attached storage (NAS),
storage area networks (SANs), RAIDs and hard drives.
axle catalogs the files you have, where you have them.
It also supports many archiving systems which write and read
LTO tapes, the industry standard for archiving media files.
All axle systems are compatible with Adobe (Premiere Pro, Prelude)
and Apple (Final Cut Pro 7, Final Cut Pro X) editors. We're also developing
special versions of Axle Gear that add compatibility for Adobe Anywhere
and Avid Media Composer / Symphony workflows. Contact us for details.
Over 100 creative teams worldwide are already using axle.
Examples include the Post Group, a major Los Angeles post-
production company; INSEAD, Europe's leading business
school; the LA Dodgers baseball team; and Intuit, the leading developer of accounting software and online services.
axle makes your team much more productive almost immediately. It makes your existing media files searchable, browsable from a range of standard devices (rather than just edit stations), and ready for collaboration, logging and review and approval. The software can be set up in less than an hour, and almost no training is required for users.
axle Gear takes these core capabilities and adds the ability to create new
versions of clips and selects in a variety of formats that you can configure.
The best way is our axle Gear 1U rack appliance, which
includes our software, Telestream Episode Pro multiformat
encoding and other key utilities. Or, you can configure the
software on one or more Mac minis or Mac Pros. Either way,
our global network of integration partners can get you started.
