axle Video’s radically simple media management removes camera file complexity and transforms scattered, inaccessible video into easy to use, shareable media.

From camera to archive, axle Video makes it easy to import, find, use and share media files. Our radically simple media management removes complexity from camera file import, organizes media, and makes all your video instantly accessible from anywhere to search, tag, pre-edit, comment, and review and approve. Unlike existing MAM systems, axle’s solutions are easy for media organizations of any size to install, use and afford. axle’s solutions have caught on rapidly among video professionals in post-production, education, broadcast, corporate, sports, house of worship, non-profit, advertising-marketing, and government organizations worldwide. At its introduction, axle Video’s software was recognized with the IBC 2012 Best of Show award and at NAB 2013 with the prestigious DV Magazine Black Diamond and Post Picks awards.

Automatic Cataloging
Unlike other systems that require you to check media in and out, axle 2014 automatically takes care of discovering your media. Just point it at your existing file system and it will index all the files and update its database in real time as new files are added or removed.

Browser-based Review
With axle, you can work with the contents of your media library through a simple interface from any location. Don’t lock up an expensive editing seat just to review footage – do it from your laptop, tablet or phone, in or out of the office.

Automatic Proxy Generation
To avoid bogging down your production network with high bandwidth accesses to your high resolution media, axle automatically generates low resolution proxies of your media assets and stores them on a separate drive. That way, lots of people can be viewing the media without impacting your production network.

Extensive Format Support
axle will work with all your existing media, including .mov, .mxf, .avi and many other source media formats. Yours not on our list? Just check in with us and we can verify whether we can read it.

Customizable Metadata Fields
axle ships with a standard metadata schema for you to use, but we know every project has its own metadata requirements, so you can add custom metadata fields to organize your material exactly the way you need to.

Smart Search
When you have a large library, the key to media management is finding material fast. axle not only includes standard search functions, but lets you set up smart search filters so you can quickly find material based on the criteria you select.
