Easy access to assets within editing environment among many new time-saving features of axle 2016

BOSTON, March 16, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- NAB 2016 (Booth SL15416). axle Video is launching the newest version of its radically simple media management system, axle 2016, with an emphasis on greater efficiency and power.  The new Plug-In Panel feature of axle 2016 puts axle media management into  Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC through an axle interface window, allowing editors to search, browse, and import clips without leaving the application. The new feature brings important capabilities to the popular editing system, especially for small to midsize video teams, for whom traditional MAM systems may be unaffordable or too complex.

"It's great to be able to search for everything right from inside Adobe Premiere Pro CC," said Sergio Miranda of Serril Media, a small postproduction house in Santa Monica. "The editors on our documentary projects are already finding great ways to collaborate with the panel from their laptops; axle is always pushing the envelope on making it easy to do great creative work."  

axle 2016, the fifth major release of axle Video's core software, contains refinements and features  mostly based on feedback from the company's  active and rapidly expanding user community. In addition to the Adobe Premiere Plug-In Panel, other important features include expanded search capabilities, real-time status monitoring, improved administration, and large text fields that can replace separate text documents for logging and transcription.

Sam Bogoch, CEO of axle Video, said "Now Adobe Premiere Pro CC editors not only have a simple way to instantly find, review, and use any clip in online or archive storage, but they can effortlessly collaborate with producers, loggers, assistants, and clients in pre-edit, edit, and review and approval workflows. Taken with the improved search, dashboard, administration, and enhanced text fields, axle 2016 is an important release for axle Video and a free, high-value upgrade for our customers on axle Support."
