Axinom CMS

Axinom’s award-winning content management system Axinom CMS enables media companies to manage, convert, distribute and monetize digital assets and Meta data in the cloud while reducing maintenance costs for live and on-demand scenarios. Close collaboration with encoding providers like Envivio, Harmonic, and iStreamPlanet enables customers to tailor the best possible media workflow to their needs. As a technology base for more than 500 media projects during the past 10 years, Axinom CMS supports today more than 100 partner companies worldwide.

Axinom DRM 6

Axinom DRM 6 is a robust and highly scalable multi-DRM service built on latest standards including MPEG-DASH, Common Encryption and Encrypted Media Extensions. Content protected with Axinom DRM can be consumed on the vast majority of consumer devices running Windows, iOS and Android OS, as well as Smart TVs, set top boxes, and game consoles.

Axinom DRM 6 is built from the ground up to target multiple DRM technologies in a uniform manner, enabling customers to target a wide range of platforms. Leveraging the Common Encryption specification satisfies the DRM needs of many different software platforms with a single service by simultaneously supporting multiple DRM technologies. This allows customers to select the best approach for each platform without requiring significant new development. The APIs offered by Axinom’s service are largely DRM-agnostic and designed with future extensibility in mind.

For maximum availability, scalability, and performance Axinom DRM 6 supports zero-downtime maintenance and a globally distributed cloud-deployment spanning several public cloud providers. Axinom’s customers enjoy guaranteed availability of 99.99% and global support 24/7. Consumers enjoy a highly responsive service that’s always available.

Axinom Apps

A set of white label applications (Axinom Apps) ensures the best user experience on devices and a short time-to-market for OTT projects. Axinom Apps support all major application platforms such as Apple iOS, Google Android, Microsoft Windows, Smart TV and game consoles. The application configuration and the publishing process are managed by Axinom CMS allowing customers to manage all platforms from a single source at the same time and to extend the feature set of Axinom Apps using the API.
