Axinom Video Ingest and Processing (VIP)

Discover Axinom VIP and bring your content to the world!

Axinom Video Ingest and Processing (VIP) was developed to solve the requirement of fast and simplified packaging of  premium video content for on-board entertainment systems in aircrafts (IFE), trains (OBE), and busses (OBE/CES). 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 pipelines for encoding and packaging. This is a complex and costly challenge which is not easy to solve for a majority of service providers.

Axinom VIP is a solution for this challenge.

Customers and service providers can integrate Axinom VIP into their existing workflows with Axinom VIP on-premises or using managed Axinom VIP cloud deployment to deliver best movies faster and more easily to the passengers.

Process Once, Play Everywhere

Android and iOS, HTML5 web apps are supported.

For content protection we apply Common Encryption (CENC) with PlayReady and Widevine – both technologies belong to Axinom DRM product and are seamlessly integrated with Axinom VIP.
