AXON the broadcast infrastructure, monitoring and control specialist, received 2 prestigious industry awards during NAB for Neuron - the industry’s first AVB-enabled (Audio Video Bridging) video product.

The IABM Game Changer award  honors products, processes, systems, services or developments with the potential to transform how the broadcast and media industry operates. This awards  recognizes Neuron for its innovative design and integration of AVB technology - an open standard based on IEEE802.1.

The second award AXON won is the NewBay Media’s Best of Show Award, presented by TV Technology magazine. NewBay Media’s Best of Show Awards are evaluated by a panel of engineers and industry experts, and are selected based on innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry.


Neuron is a combination of hardware and software, and an Ethernet application which uses the high speeds of a modern IT-based infrastructure. The AVB-enabled video product will help change the way live production infrastructures are created, providing point-to-point connectivity, and in a switched network environment for a much less costly alternative to CWDM (Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing).

While Neuron is built upon the open AVB standard, key additional functionality is built into the system, as it is part of AXON’s Synapse family. Full integration with AXON's Synapse interfacing and conversion and Cerebrum advanced management solutions provides flexibility, modularity and control. Standalone Neuron boxes allow direct and cost-effective integration of cameras, screens, stage boxes and desktop I/O. Neuron is a fully networkable, extremely low latency infrastructure that supports varied production and real-time applications by replacing the conventional SDI router matrix and adding complete managed networking functionality.


“We are proud to have won these prestigious awards,” said Jan Eveleens, CEO of AXON. “We’re pleased that Neuron has been recognized as a product that will help change the way broadcasters create and manage their live production infrastructures in the future.”
