A. Who Are We?

In short…

Axis-One was created following the merger of ARC Cinevideo, Belgium’s oldest audiovisual company, and Tatou Belgium, the leader on the broadcast video equipment rental market for nearly 15 years. In 2010, these two companies quite naturally combined their skills into a single structure, which was given the name Axis-One, in order to offer you a single contact for all of your integration, rental and sales needs for broadcast and digital cinema equipment.

For each project, Axis-One offers you its expertise and accompanies you from the earliest planning stages all the way through completion.

Tailor-made advice, a fit-for-purpose offer, a true fit with your real needs, suitable training and professional after-sales support ensure the long-term viability and upgradeability of your investment.

C. Our sectors of activity

Broadcast Integration department:

Integration systems, Engineering – Video-audio-lighting broadcast & IT solutions

The creation of a hybrid broadcast system has never been an easy thing.

Over the years, we have succeeded in filling the gap between IT & broadcast, thanks to our expertise, our analysis and the real added value we provide with each client and each project.

Axis-One is a supplier of systems, broadcast services and integration services.

Our staff work for and with their clients, in order to propose the best and, in this way, to contribute to ensuring the reliability, long-term viability and upgradeability of each investment.

We have designed, built and installed turn-key broadcasting systems, and we have integrated systems for a wide range of clients and firms, in order to enable them to maintain a competitive position in the audiovisual world.

We rely on more than 20 years of experience in the TV & broadcast sectors in order to produce sequences, conceive projects and present our broadcast skills by means of integration systems, engineering projects, project management and partnerships with other companies, providing professional, practical and reliable solutions for all actors in the broadcast sector, most particularly in television.

Over the years, we have completed simple, large-scale projects and more complex projects for major television networks, international institutions, production companies, post-production studios and independents in Belgium and abroad.
For Axis-One, no task is too big or too small; all projects are worthy of our greatest attention. Our staff, in partnership with our suppliers and top brand manufacturers, continue to grow and evolve as times and trends change, in order to remain on the cutting edge of technology and broadcasting.

The traditional audiovisual era has changed greatly and is constantly evolving.

Today, a full range of high-performance, complementary software programs are operational for broadcasting and for the management of video-audio-IT fluxes, subtitling, post-production, workflow automation and the management of digital assets for broadcasters.

These changes require digitisation & archiving of yesterday’s media for consultation and use today. You can benefit from this experience, which can now offer you film archiving solutions and the transfer of traditional media to high-performance, reliable and secure digital back-ups.

How can we help you with your current or future projects?

Put us to the test!

Axis-One is, above all, a service company “at your service”. This is why our primary role is to listen to you, assist you, advise you and provide you with our expertise and our know-how, whether simply for the purchase of equipment or for the examination and completion of a project, in conjunction with you, your architect, your technical manager, your selected suppliers, etc.

The study, design and completion of a mobile unit, a studio, a TV set or Web/virtual studio require specific know-how and skills on a case-by-case basis.

D. Our pluses…

Axis-One team

A solid, dynamic, responsive, creative and complementary team of experts are always there to listen and offer you service. With new members being added as requests and projects evolve, our staff continue to grow and progress as times and trends change.

Our core staff have remained stable for a number of years, growing as our company grows and adding short-term staff as needed for specific projects, backed by more than 20 years of experience in the audiovisual & TV sectors.

Without the administrative burdens associated with a large organisation or group, Axis-one cuts right to the chase: with you, for you & for your project.

Quality & reliability of our equipment for hire

We place great importance on the reliability of the equipment we provide you. Our equipment fleet has been renewed almost completely, and our ongoing policy of investment puts us in a leadership position on the market. Our equipment is systematically tested whenever it leaves or is returned to our warehouse. Better yet, when several units are hired for multi-camera filming, our maintenance engineer performs alignment, calibration and colorimetric adjustment of each camera in order to ensure the uniformity of the final product. In case of technical issues (and because we are aware that despite all of the precautions we take, it is impossible to eliminate all risk of problems), our technicians are there to help you and work with you to find a quick, reliable solution.

After-sales service & maintenance

At Axis-One, we are not satisfied with delivering and installing your equipment. Our engineers test it prior to delivery. They also perform the necessary adjustments and calibrations, which are then fine-tuned on site, under real conditions of use.

We know how important the reliability of your equipment is for you. This is why we offer tailor-made maintenance contracts that enable you to have your equipment maintained by qualified technicians, at your site or in our workshops. If your equipment is out-of-service for a prolonged time, or to enable you to deal with any service interruption, we provide you with equivalent replacement equipment at suitable prices and with a short turnaround time. We maintain privileged relations with all the brands that we distribute. Thanks to our fleet of rental equipment, we also have a large stock of spare parts and an in-house technical team (mechanical and electronic shops) that guarantee the availability of perfectly operational equipment under all circumstances.
