Axle Video has announced the availability of one of the first turnkey media asset management systems to support Adobe Anywhere for video, a collaborative workflow platform. Axle Gear for Adobe Anywhere is a turnkey hardware and software system that provides automated media tacking, proxy generation, remote browsing, and review and approval for Adobe Anywhere users.

"We're pleased that axle is offering this affordable, browser-based media management system," said Simon Williams, director of strategic relationships at Adobe. "This new functionality will help a wide range of content creators who are using Adobe Anywhere for collaborative editing."

The axle Gear system works in real time to transparently catalog media. Through a web browser-based UI, users can browse proxies, annotate, collaborate on, review, and approve media from any location. In the Adobe Anywhere workflow, axle Gear manages the lifecycle of media prior to and after the creative process. Axle Gear is compatible with nearly all file systems and media storage systems.

"Adobe Anywhere addresses the rapidly growing need for media professionals of all kinds to collaborate at any time, and with the right creative talent, regardless of their location," said Sam Bogoch, CEO of axle Video. "Once that core collaborative capability is in place, media management quickly becomes essential to the content creation workflow, and the radical simplicity of axle Video makes it a perfect companion to Adobe Anywhere."

Axle Gear for Adobe Anywhere is priced at $11,995 for a complete 1U rack mount system serving five user accounts.  The system includes a media management server, a proxy transcode server to make the media available to non-Anywhere clients, and axle and Telestream software modules and one-year software updates and support.  Additional five-user license packages for the system are priced at $3,995.
