Axle Video

Booth SL13609 Axle Video is unveiling axle 2017, the fifth generation of its axle media management software, which now doubles the capacity of media that can be managed to more than 2 million video, image and audio files. The company says this solution allows users to quickly browse, find, tag and reuse media, while collaborating with others.

This latest version offers Advanced Transcode, an option for axle Gear that provides proxy encoding and other transcoding tasks. This includes high-resolution transcodes of clips and sub-clips to be dispatched to a transcode engine powered by Imagine Products’ Prime Transcode and other integrated transcode tools. Advanced Transcode leverages Prime Transcode’s support for newer formats, such as native Red and Arri camera raw files, including acceleration via multicore CPUs, GPUs and Red’s Red Rocket hardware.
