Video Ingest and Processing (VIP)
At Aircraft Interiors Expo 2017 in Hamburg, Axinom introduced Axinom Video Ingest and Processing (VIP) for the content service providers. Advancing its Digital Platforms strategy, Axinom VIP brings a faster content approval by content providers, speeds up the content updates, significantly reduces technical challenges related to content preparation and distribution, and allows faster time to market with reduced costs.
Digital Platform: Content Management For Wireless, In-Seat and Portable IFE Systems
Based on Axinom CMS, an extensible content management system designed to cover the full end-to-end media workflow, Axinom is building digital platforms for management of existing wireless and in-seat IFE systems, as well as for portable on-board servers since several years for clients around the world.
Axinom CMS is the winner in “2016 Streaming Media European Readers’ Choice Awards”.
Digital Platform: Encoding As A Service
The diversity of client devices capable of playing streaming videos has seen a sharp increase, including a variety of mobile devices and laptops. Having the latest Hollywood movies prepared in time for on-board entertainment is vital for every service provider. Unfortunately, licensing agreements for premium content used by Hollywood studios require an MPAA-grade pipeline for encoding and packaging. With Axinom VIP (Video Ingest and Processing), as a brand new software component in the concept of digital platforms built on Axinom, customers rely on comprehensive abilities to manage and optimise encoding and transcoding workflows on-premise and in the cloud. Axinom VIP represents a quick and easy way for service providers to deliver the best movies faster and more easily to the passengers.
Digital Platform: Studio-Grade DRM Protected Content Stores
The path to premium video content fresh from theatres provided by Hollywood studios and streamed to devices on flights features a set of stringent requirements in relation to data security in order to safeguard content copyright. Axinom works since years very closely with leading Hollywood studios to build secure content stores for premium video content stored on-premises data centres and in the cloud.
Axinom DRM is highly scalable multi-DRM service. It is the first multi-DRM product that can operate in a disconnected fashion enabling premium video on board of more than a hundred aircraft in the world today. It supports leading DRM technologies on laptops and mobile devices. Axinom is providing access to best of breed free secure players for Microsoft Windows and Apple OSX/MacOS and the majority of popular client devices – tablets, mobile phones, game consoles and Smart TVs.
Axinom DRM is selected as top 3 product in the European video market by “2016 Streaming Media European Readers’ Choice Awards”.
Digital Platform: Content Synchronization And Delivery
Today’s services in an aircraft have several challenges. Networks can be slow and unreliable, bandwidth can be changing or costly, data can be personal and critical. A world with ubiquitous connectivity will never exist. Traffic quotas, allocated bandwidth, availability of connectivity, storage space, computational power, data security, privacy and many other resources and requirements cannot be taken for granted.
Axinom provides digital platforms with foundational data management services on top of the communication layer enabling the creation of new and extension of existing services.
Axinom CDS is built to transfer data fast, securely, and reliably in any environment, e.g. on-board servers and devices exchanging entertainment content and services with the management platform in the cloud. Axinom CDS is your robust solution that magically manages all aspects, including utilizing different pipes (LAN, WiFi, 3G, LTE, satellite networks), managing interruptions, prioritizing important data, and controlling data transfer cost.
Digital Platform: Second Screen And Payment Gateways
Axinom is building second screen applications (companion apps) which allow passengers to control their seatback IFE monitor using the in-flight Wi-Fi network onboard the aircraft.
As a PCI compliant software vendor, Axinom is building mobile applications connected to payment gateways allowing e-commerce transaction in online and offline scenarios on board of the aircraft.
Next Generation of In-Flight Entertainment Solutions
Worldwide Business kathy ireland®, a business show that focuses on the most innovative and forward-thinking business leaders, examines the next generation of in-flight entertainment, infotainment, and aerospace connectivity solutions.
In this episode, host Kathy Ireland interviews Ralph Wagner, Axinom’s Aerospace CEO. Wagner begins by noting that today’s travelers want to have all of their home entertainment, personal connectivity, and office information readily available at all times, even when traveling by plane, train, or other disconnected environment. Axinom addresses this need, he says, by preparing the content on the ground, adding the necessary security protections, and distributing it to the vehicle in question.
