Key Features

Connected Mobile Editing

Developed by Luma Touch for axle, axle Edit offers an end-to-end mobile solutions for journalists and producers. axle Edit adds new capabilities for axle users and anyone wanting to create stories while on location, and do it all from their iPad or iPhone. In conjunction with axle 2015 media management software, videos can be rough-edited quickly in the field, then sent for finishing by an editor or sent directly to air.

Edit Local and Server-Based Media

From anywhere in the world, log onto axle 2015 and search material, combine it with footage recorded on your iPad or iPhone, do simple timeline or storyboard editing of video and audio from axle’s bins, and save a sequence locally using H.264 proxy. When the iPad edit is complete, a simple tap sends the project to axle servers where any locally acquired media is cataloged, conformed and associated with the original full resolution media.

The Spry Engine

axle Edit is the first product created using Luma Touch’s new Spry Engine, a powerful framework for video apps on iOS and OSX.  Spry incorporates decades of expertise, enabling powerful editing, compositing and effects apps.  Spry ensures that axle Edit will grow with incredible new features.  Click here to learn more about the Spry Engine.




Elegantly Simple

axle Edit is easy to learn and use, but styled to resemble professional editorial tools with insert and overwrite editing, media detail views, cuts and dissolves, audio adjustments, and the choice of storyboard or timeline editing. It’s ideal for journalists and others who need a portable editing tool with the option to include archival news footage from the servers when editing in the field, and also for producers who want to review dailies or other footage and stitch together rough cuts for what-if purposes.

Fits Your Organization

The same logon credentials and permissions from axle 2015 apply to axle Edit. On the iPad or iPhone, axle ensures that those authorized can only see the media that’s relevant to them. axle Edit is for any organization with valuable media that can be utilized for editing remotely from the facility, especially those that have multiple users including news organizations, corporate video teams, universities, broadcast producers, non-profits and post-production teams.
