Quick and easy archiving, restoring

This month, we’re highlighting some of our team’s favorite features — some you may know about, and some you may not! These are different aspects of axle ai with one thing in common: they all make it easier for you and your team to work with video, audio and graphics, whether you’re in the office or working remotely.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be looking at how archiving works in axle…

axle ai makes it radically simple… to archive your media

Users can archive to tape, cloud, or any chosen location to offload media that’s no longer in use and free up storage space. Axle will keep your proxy preview files, allowing users to browse and view archived footage and quickly restore clips when you need them. An administrator can create an archive location and set permissions for users, allowing them to archive single files, groups of files or entire folders.

This month, we’re highlighting some of our team’s favorite features- some you may know about, and some you may not! These are different aspects of axle ai with one thing in common- they all make it easier for you and your team to work with video, audio and graphics, whether you’re in the office or working remotely.

This week, let’s look at a different way to view and browse your media in axle…

axle ai makes it radically simple… to sort and browse your media by metadata

Quickly browse your media and relevant, customizable metadata fields by using the list view feature in axle.
