Swiss Army Knife:

A penknife incorporating several blades and other tools such as scissors and screwdrivers.

Axim:

A broadcast quality audio/video processor, with many downloadable apps, that allow Axim to completely change its function

The most flexible audio/video processor in Broadcast

Axim has a unique approach, it is not a product it is an audio/video processing platform. You do not have to buy or download anything to get started with Axim. As standard Axim comes pre-loaded with a 3 channel multi-function video processing suite but can be repurposed via a large selection of APPS which are free of charge and downloadable from the Axim website.

You are not limited to the free of charge APPs, Axim can be easily customised: need multiple apps combined? Simply give us your workflow and we’ll provide a custom patch for you*. Need something that’s not on the website? Custom configurations are our forte*.

Axim is a powerful hardware design using a dual ARM A9 processor embedded in the latest high speed Altera device.

Axim provides:

3 Channel general purpose A/V processing appliance
Internal input and output signal routers
Compatible with all downloadable APPs n the Axim website
Integrated HDMI port for live image monitoring
Small footprint: 110mm x 100mm x 11mm
3x relay protected SD/HD/3G SDI inputs.
3x relay protected SD/HD/3G SDI outputs.
1x HDMI monitoring output hardware switchable between channels
Optional redundant power protection
Optional 19” rack frame
Full remote control using Axim control software
Full SNMP V2 support

Optional expansion cards give:

1x Analog reference input (bi-level or tri-level sync)
Analogue Video input for legacy sub-title bridging and transcoding
4x AES Audio inputs
4x Audio outputs
10x GPI inputs and 10x GPI outputs
H.264 encode
4x Balanced Analogue Audio inputs
4x Balanced Analogue Audio outputs
