Over the past few months, we have been busy showcasing our product portfolio and sharing the newest announcements on exhibitions around the globe. These events gave us the opportunity to meet with existing and potential customers and partners from all over the world, and to look at the latest developments coming from aerospace and media & entertainment industries.
Following is the summary of Axinom´s announcements made at the exhibitions in the first half of 2017:
Media & Entertainment Industry
Starting with Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, and followed by TV Connect in London, NAB Show in Las Vegas and Broadcast Asia in Singapore, we presented our latest product launches for OTT and IPTV solutions to the public. Each year, these shows allow us to engage with the majority of our customers and our fellow solution providers from different locations in the world.
What was presented?
Axinom Content Management System (CMS) features new automated workflows for SVOD, AVOD, TVOD and Live video streaming scenarios. Today, the system is leveraged widely across different markets around the world, enabling media customers to build powerful OTT and TV Everywhere solutions with a clear focus on specific target groups or specific environments (e.g. smart home, entertainment in motion).
Through Product Management, content managers can define, organize and monetize their products (SVOD, TVOD, AVOD). These product packages can include any type of digital assets, such as Videos, TV shows, Live Channels, Magazines, and more. The system gives an extremely convenient way to define pricing, manage subscription, content and user properties, and publish meta data feeds for consumption by frontends.
NAB Show, the biggest event in the media & entertainment industry attracted more than 100,000 attendees and almost 2,000 exhibitors. We showcased our trusted, cloud-based DRM infrastructure to clients looking to offer a seamless multi-screen experience and license a wide range of 4K Hollywood premium content to different consumer devices. Thanks to high scalability and reliability of Axinom Digital Rights Management (DRM) , services such as UK´s leading on-demand service BBC iPlayer and Germany’s HD streaming service HD+ by Astra are today powered by our multi-DRM service.
Aircraft Interiors Expo and Apex Multimedia Market are one of the must-attend events for discovering the latest innovations, technologies, and products in the area of in-flight entertainment. Next to scheduled and ad-hoc meetings, our teams were busy sharing their views on the most pressing topics at the events.

The newest addition to our software solution portfolio, Axinom VIP (Video Ingest and Processing), was introduced at the AIX Show in Hamburg. 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. As a part of our Digital Platforms approach, together with Axinom CMS, Axinom DRM, Axinom CDS, it was one of the most talked about offerings at our booth.
