Automated camera
ingest, media management and sharing in a single, affordable application

ORLANDO, Florida—axle Video, developer of media management
tools for video production, broadcast, news-gathering, and other applications that
are easy to install, use and afford, today announces the release of a
groundbreaking new product that resolves—elegantly and cost-effectively—the
most persistent problem faced by videographers today: managing complex camera
media. Shown for the first time at InfoComm 2015, axle Cam is a low-cost camera
ingest application that streamlines the process of acquiring, organizing and
sharing media from today’s most popular video cameras and DSLRs.
axle Video will demonstrate axle Cam at InfoComm 2015 (Booth
490), June 17-19.
For the first time, axle Cam affordably resolves
organizational issues caused by multiple file formats, bitrates, file wrappers
and folder structures. The software automatically detects, imports and
organizes camera media. Users are then able to instantly access, edit and share
files through a simple user interface that leverages axle’s radically simple media
management technology. The product supports DSLRs and HD cameras made by Sony,
Panasonic, Canon, JVC, Nikon and GoPro. 
The company is developing specialized modules to support higher-end
cinema cameras, though release dates have not been announced.

axle Cam is an ideal solution for news organizations, sports
broadcasters, professional videographers, schools, governmental organizations,
religious groups and others who deal with large volumes of camera media. It
provides a simple path between production and editorial, and makes it easier to
share camera media with other parties for review and approval or collaborative
“axle Cam is the missing link between the camera and the
computer,” says axle Video CEO Sam Bogoch. “It eliminates the countless hours
video professionals now spend in processing and organizing camera files before
they can be used by others.”
With a cost of just $995 for a two-user license, axle Cam is
priced far below competing solutions, making it a compelling choice for a range
of professional users.
axle Cam is a comprehensive and versatile solution. During
ingest, camera files are rewrapped with no reduction in image quality, and low
resolution H.264 proxy versions of camera media are created for use in
editorial and review. The application also features a suite of integrated media
management tools, including an interface for displaying media in browsers or
mobile devices, a search function for technical and other metadata, and a
dashboard grid layout that makes it easy to designate sources and select
“DSLRs and video cameras generate dozens of files and
folders, which, for the majority of users, are needless clutter,” notes Bogoch.
“It leads to more workflow steps, more errors and misplaced shots, and less
time for creativity. axle Cam provides an elegant, automated solution. It
cleans up incoming files, makes H.264 proxies, grabs the metadata, and displays
it in a browser/mobile interface.”
