During its successful equity crowdfunding round, axle ai has highlighted a number of its customers, new products including interfaces to products from Adobe, Dropbox and Avid, and most importantly the rapid trend by media teams towards remote work in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Media centers such as New York, Los Angeles and London have all been impacted, as well as key axle ai customer segments like corporate marketing, churches and sports teams – there is a rapidly growing need for software to enable browser-based access to large amounts of media. axle ai’s customers include Elevation Church, Price Waterhouse Coopers, Madison Square Garden, NBC Universal, Paramount and American Public Television. A recent lively customer panel on the use of axle ai software to enable distributed media work is available for streaming at tinyurl.com/newnormalpanel.
