This is Axibo, your PERSONAL camera assistant. Axibo is smart, Really, really smart, backed by an integrated A.I processing unit. Axibo learns, adapts, listens, and much more. We designed Axibo with stability, accuracy and noise reduction in mind, keeping our community closely involved with out design choices. To preorder Axibo and bring it to life, click Back this project. Or scroll on and explore all that Axibo has to offer.


So why create Axibo? Accessibility. Robotic camera systems (without intelligence) are far too expensive and difficult to use for most content creators. Axibo brings pro-features while also being affordable and easy to use. 

It's no joke. Axibo can be used to automate video and photo shoots. With many different modes and a comprehensive feature set, Axibo will allow professionals to get more done. This feature can also be used to detect different subjects and follow them whenever they appear in the field of view. 

Using its built in camera, Axibo can track just about any object. Axibo can also use the feed from your camera to do tracking as well. This way you can set up the tracking with any lens system. From the App tracking settings can easily be adjusted.  


Axibo can track just about anything. Using its state of the art A.I. system Axibo can track through light changes and even when objects are partially hidden. Tracking can be paired with other features for automated photo and video. 

Axibo's tracking feature is even useful for standard slider interview shots. Axibo can track a face while sliding back and forth.

 Axibo can even be used to track products. This makes for stunning product shots that will let people see your products in a new way. 

 Timelapse features on Axibo are second to none. From a simple pan or tilt timelapse to a complex 3-axis multi-point timelapse. Axibo can handle it all. It can even manage your exposure through Bulb or a link to the camera.

  • Time-lapse with any combination of pan, tilt or slide
  • Control exposure automatically using integrated camera sensor
  • Synchronize shutter with motion for photo time-lapse.
  • Multi-point key-frame time-lapse
  • Celestial tracking time-lapse

Axibo's application makes all the features easy to understand and very accessible. The application even includes built in tutorial videos to help you get started.  

 The app will run on any device that can connect to Wifi! Some features can even be set to run on startup without the app. 




Axibo has a host of other features that work great for capturing good footage. Whether you are shooting Yoga tutorials or reviewing water bottles, Axibo can move how you choose and help take your videos to the next level.  

 The Axibo Z1 Pan & Tilt unit provides the core robotic features of Axibo. With this unit you can track, create time-lapses, and automate your favourite footage. 

  • Easily mounts on any tripod
  • Can be stored in a camera bag for taking on faraway adventures
  • Modular mounting adapts to most camera systems (1/4in thread, Manfrotto RC2)
  • Rugged Aluminum construction with precision bearings and gearing
  • Works in inverted mode
  • Integrated 40fps tracking camera (4Mp)

The Axibo slider allows your camera to move along the 1 meter rail at slow or high speeds. This rail can be used with or without the Axibo Z1 Pan and Tilt unit. 

  • supports angled/vertical motion
  • rigid carbon fiber construction for smooth shooting.
  • Multiple mounting options, including dual 1/4-20 on either end. 
  • 1000(mm) slider length.

The Axibo controller can be used without any of the robotic features. You can power and control your camera from the Axibo controller. Let's face it, camera batteries never last long enough but we've got you covered. The controller also lets you use the auto triggering features.

  • HDMI, USB-C, Trigger, D-Tap
  • 5 x Axis Inputs for Pan, Tilt, Slide & more.
  • Wifi (Access Point and Client), Bluetooth
  • Sony NP-F Dual Battery Receiver

Axibo can be configured in all kinds of different ways and with many different cameras. 

One of our co-founders, Reiner, was shooting a video in a large area and moving around a lot. Being on his own it was very time consuming having to reset the cameras position and make multiple cuts. Especially with his off-the-cuff style. Being a robotic engineer, he quickly designed a mount to help him with these shots. Other people saw the robot, one thing lead to another and Axibo was born. 

Building Axibo was no easy task, it was a serious undertaking in engineering. Getting Axibo in your hands is no different. We have a strategic plan for getting Axibo to our backers as quickly as possible.  

As a camera equipment company Axibo Media is very unique because it believes in the spirit of openness. We show this in how we actively take feedback from users and backers and integrate it into our design. Axibo also has an open source software library that allows access to many of Axibo's core features. This is available in Python, NodeJS, and as a REST API. This allows users to create their own unique applications for Axibo.

About Axibo Media
