*/ AXIOM Team Talk This is the third part of a recent round of AXIOM Team Talks we shot across the summer. The previous two episodes can be watched at: 14.1 - Moving Facilities, Updates and GSoC Projects. 14.2 - SDI, IMU, Power Board and Enclosure Progress. Website As you may have noticed there are ongoing efforts being made to improve and revise the website's design. The first article we released with the new layout was a work report by one of this year's GSoC students. We're in the process of... » Read more
Debayering Inside OpenCine "My task was to develop, implement and accelerate debayering algorithms into OpenCine . The chosen demosaicers were Nearest Neighbor Interpolation , Bilinear Interpolation , Green Edge Directed Interpolation (GEDI) and SHOODAK2, and were successfully implemented and accelerated with OpenMP . Towards the end of the project, I tried to accelerate with OpenCL , albeit with no significant advantages. The SHOODAK2 algorithm was also marked for needing a revamp, as ideally... » Read more
Dual 6G SDI Plugin Module First generation Dual 6G SDI Development prototype based on an off-the-shelf FPGA module Previously, across Winter 2017 together with timvideos.us at 34C3 in Germany, we showcased a first generation AXIOM Photon-SDI development prototype - this was based on an off-the-shelf Xilinx Artix FPGA module. The team got together in Vienna a week before Christmas 2017 for a hackathon. The aim was to focus on SDI related FPGA software development and to make preparations for... » Read more
Moving Offices For the last two years the AXIOM headquarters has cohabited from the modest Amescon facilities in the 15th District of Vienna, Austria. This is where most of the electronics manufacturing for the AXIOM Betas has taken place. This spring we began the process of moving to a new, bigger and better shared office called Factory Hub Vienna - this was quite a challenge as the pick and place machine was built and assembled inside the old office and so it wasn’t clear whether or not the... » Read more
AXIOM Beta USB 3.0 plugin module If you've been following the project you'll know that, where recording data is concerned, the AXIOM Beta has relied solely on external, off-the-shelf, HDMI recorders and all the pros and cons that are known to be inherent with those devices up to now. With the USB 3.0 plugin module, however, any computer with USB 3.0 connectivity can be used as an AXIOM Recorder. This will allow us to define format/container/metadata/etc. of uncompressed raw 4k footage for the... » Read more
Last week, apertus° community member davidak , from Germany, visited Vienna and participated in a number of AXIOM related activities in the course of one week ranging from hardware assembly, software development and building ergonomic enclosure evaluation prototypes, to shooting with the AXIOM Beta. Davidak on various AXIOM duties in Vienna. Shooting the Signs of Autumn in a Vienna Park Of course, nobody wants to work on the AXIOM project without taking the camera for a spin, and so, even... » Read more
