axle Video showcases time-saving media management solutions at ISE 2016


AMSTERDAM, February 8, 2016—ISE Stand 6-M162. axle Video, developer of award-winning “radically simple” media management tools that are easy to use and afford, is having its ISE debut in Hall 6 from tomorrow through Friday, February 12th. axle is showing its solutions that solve the most persistent problem faced by media teams today: finding, selecting and sharing video content. axle Video media management solutions are proven daily at hundreds of sites in demanding and high-profile corporate, government, education, sports, advertising, TV production, and non-profit organizations, worldwide.

Visitors to ISE 2016 can see how axle Gear software automatically discovers and presents a facility’s entire video, still image and audio assets in a simple browser interface, so that users can easily search, browse, comment, create shot-lists and rough edits, and review and approve media from anywhere. The software is compatible with mobile devices and with nearly any form of storage (NAS, SAN or direct attach). axle’s software is priced from 1,000 to 5,000 Euros, and powerful complete solutions including network storage are available starting at under 10,000 Euros.

Key features of axle Gear include:

  • Automated operation. Axle Gear automatically discovers, catalogs, and imports all metadata from digital media files, and creates low-resolution media proxies which are linked to the original media, and presented in a frame-accurate browser, tablet, or smartphone view.
  • Camera formats. Providing the missing link between camera and computer, camera media is automatically detected, imported and organized. Users can then instantly access, edit and share files from DSLR and HD cameras from Sony, Panasonic, Canon, JVC, Nikon, GoPro, and others.
  • Increased scale. A completely re-architected platform more than doubles scale to over 600,000 media assets, addressing a common requirement for larger corporate and marketing organizations.
  • New UI. axle’s award-winning browser based user interface gains numerous refinements that extend workflow capabilities within an even cleaner layout. Production teams will appreciate the greater speed and agility in planning, pre-edit, and review and approval workflows.
  • REST API. axle Gear’s REST (representational state transfer) API offers exciting new possibilities for advanced integration through a powerful yet simple method of linking with other applications and adapting to specific site requirements.

axle not only saves valuable time by eliminating the time and cost of searching for or re-shooting media, but allows nontechnical corporate video users, assistants, and others to work directly with their media. axle Gear also interfaces directly with Adobe, Apple, and Avid editing systems.
