How Does it Work?

axle is radically simple software for managing your video files and photos through any web browser. It's not cloud software, though - the back end runs on a computer that you control, connected to the storage you already own.


axle installs right away, and works with almost any type of storage and folder structure. There's no need to move your files or upload them to the cloud.


axle's so easy to use, everyone on your team can start working with it immediately, without extensive set-up or training.


axle is more affordable than traditional MAMs, putting media management in the hands of everyone.


Blazing fast search across your entire media catalog, with powerful tools for advanced search to find exactly what you need.


axle automatically imports all the technical metadata from your media, and lets you add your own custom metadata as well.


When you're ready, export your media directly into Adobe Premiere Pro CC or Apple Final Cut Pro X with all marking and comments in place.


Not your traditional MAM

Unlike almost every MAM, axle won't take over your storage and files. axle simply indexes your media, keeping your files and folder structure intact. You can stay focused on your production without changing how you do things. In a half hour, you can have the system up and running; in an afternoon, you can have it configured to meet your needs.
