About Axinom CMS

Axinom CMS (Content Management System) is an extensible and fully customizable content management system, a web-based application, designed to prepare all kinds of digital content (movies and TV shows, live streams and other media content types, but also ads, payments, statistics, fleets, software updates, etc.) in one single interface and package the content into content sets to be delivered to end-user devices. It serves as a backend for a wide variety of scenarios, such as Live TV services or of entertainment and infotainment systems on board of an aircraft.

Axinom CMS’s core functionality is to ingest any kind of data, manage the data in one central interface, manage business logics and relations of this data, and generate feeds to be consumed by frontends. This approach can be leveraged for video and audio content, digital magazines and content pages, advertising, shops, payment, fleet and much more. Each of these topics can be covered by its own workflow.

Axinom CMS is extensible, fully customizable and adaptable to individual business needs. It is interoperable with your preferred infrastructure, legacy systems as well as 3rd party components.

Manage once, deliver everywhere

Axinom CMS is designed to manage your entire content in one single interface. By creating content sets, your CMS users decide on which content should be delivered to which aircraft. Content rules allow to control accessibility of content depending on passenger class, validity period, flight length, destination, etc.

All kind of content types

Managing content means managing all kind of content types. This includes different types of media content (video, audio, games, etc.) as well as further content types like connectivity options, destination infromation, advertisements, fleets, shop and bistro items, and and much more.

Content sets

The concept of content sets is one of Axinom CMS’ main features. It allows you to create packages of content – which can contain all kinds of content types – and to target them to specific aircraft.
