The project AXIOM, funded by the EU
in Horizon 2020 as Innovation Action, develops the first professional film camera that can be produced, modified and
adapted by everyone. The project is hosted at Art & Science at the University of Applied Arts and involves a consortium
of four other organizations in three different EU countries: Apertus Association (Austria), antmicro (Poland), af inventions
(Germany) and Denz (Germany).
AXIOM introduces the first professional, extendable, affordable and modular cinema
camera platform based on Free Software, Open Design, Open Hardware, transparent development processes and extensive documentation.
The project establishes an ecosystem that offers a sustainable basis for a broad spectrum of applications - including as an
educational technology and research tool within the arts and sciences. AXIOM is not just a product, but rather a toolkit and
ecosystem that will adapt over time, evolving for many years to come.
In the project timeframe of 15 months, the
project aims to show a best-practice example in European Open Hardware development and documentation.
