The AXIOM product line is the result of pushing for open hardware and free software digital cinema production tools. After successful crowd funding of the AXIOM Beta to build a compact, lightweight high performance hardware platform and receiving an EU Innovation grant for developing the AXIOM Gamma as highest end with "extreme" performance in a larger and more expensive package we are well on track to redefine the industry well beyond the DIY garages and hobbyist labs the project started in.
