Overview Tech Specs Image Sensor Videos Related Articles apertus° AXIOM Alpha is the name of a proof-of-concept prototype that is more than just a lab experiment. It is already meeting the demands of some real world applications like being used for film production to some degree. We are certain though that while it will not be the answer to all our prayers and not the goal of all our dreams yet it can be seen as the first step to embark on a journey to that place where we want to be one day...

Introduction The research presented here aims at establishing a digital cinema editing workflow made exclusively under Linux machines. The steps described below start at the point in which we already have a sequence, or many sequences, of digital negative (DNG) files. In the diagram, they correspond to the stages immediately after the third grey box. Everything described from there on has been tested and is documented here. Even though it is the aim of this documentation to gather information... » Read more
Notice: This page is about the Elphel® Model 353 camera NOT about apertus° Axiom ! Elphel® is a registered trademark of Elphel, Inc. The DNG Converter is a command-line tool to convert raw footage from the Elphel internal JP4 RAW codec into a DNG sequence. The software is part of the JP4Tools collection. An older version is available for Linux on launchpad as binary package: http://wiki.elphel.com/index.php?title=Movie2dng Source Code Code on GitHub Read more

This page and the information on it is related ONLY to the Elphel camera, NOT Axiom. Elphel 353 cameras have a C/CS mount which is basically just a female thread (nominally 1 inch/25 mm in diameter, with 32 threads per inch). The flange focal distance is 0.6900 in/17.526 mm for a C-mount. C-Mount (The letter "C" is said to stand for "cine") is common for 16mm lenses as well as machine vision, automation and specialised television applications. Which has lead to a very wide range of lenses to... » Read more
About A debug PMOD interface for FPGA development (like for the Zedboard) featuring 64 LEDS that can conveniently be interfaced from inside the FPGA. With the FPGA executing all instructions concurrently, you cannot inspect actions in a step-by-step manner and debug FPGA operations like normal code with breakpoints. As such, this LED matrix is a convenient way to visualize all the processes performed inside the FPGA with your VHDL code. The LEDs are multiplexed (4 blocks: LO, RO, LU, RU with 16... Read more

We implemented Pong as April fools joke in 2014 when we claimed AXIOM has been bought by a Japanese game console manufacturer and from now was to be turned into a cinematic retro gaming console.
