An almost obsessive focus on customer support and a very consistent product strategy over this time has generated a list of very loyal customers that would be the envy of any technology vendor. What sets Axon apart from other technology vendors? The 25 years of Axon’s history have witnessed seismic changes in the broadcast industry: from analogue to digital, 4:3 to widescreen, standard definition to high definition, 2D to 3D, linear passive to fully interactive and now the growing trend towards multi-platform distribution, second screen applications and connected TV. Throughout all these changes, Axon has pioneered new enabling technologies in order to empower its customers. In each of its three core product areas – Synapse modular AV processing (including multiview and routing), Cerebrum monitoring & control system and TRACS compliance recording - Axon has delivered new levels of performance by harnessing the latest technical innovations and maintained a crystal clear focus on its customers and their needs.
