axle Pulse is a new mobile app that lets broadcasters and brands source immediate, authentic content; their communities are empowered with an easy way to capture share video footage from their smartphones. The system is available either as a complete software/hardware solution for purchase, or as a monthly cloud subscription. It includes a branded app for iPhones as well as Android smartphones, and lets contributors sign up, shoot and upload video. The users can also join a dialogue with the broadcaster or corporate media department which can include requests to capture specific material in exchange for compensation. For breaking news stories, a livestreaming mode is available which turns the smartphone into an immediate on-location asset for the news organization.
The core software of every axle Video product
axle 2016 is the latest edition of axle's award-winning media management software. Simply point axle at the media files you want to manage and it automatically creates low-bandwidth proxies you can then access from any web browser. Using our simple browser interface, it's easy to search, comment, mark, approve, and annotate your assets from any location. There's no need to move your media files or change your system setup. Your storage can be a SAN, a NAS or just a local RAID, and can be running in a Mac, Windows or Linux environment – all axle needs is to be able to read the file system. For optimal system performance, we recommend running axle on one or two dedicated Mac Minis or Mac Pro; all systems must be quad-core or larger. Our new plug-in panel for Adobe Premiere® Pro CC, included with every axle 2016 system, enables editors to search, see previews and begin working on footage without leaving their favorite NLE software.
