Sam Bogoch is the CEO of Axle Video, a Boston-based software company debuting its product at this year’s IBC conference in Amsterdam, September 7th-11th.
Sam was previously at Avid, where he served at Director-level roles in business development, product management, and product design overseeing Avid’s industry-leading Interplay media asset management products. During his five years there, the Interplay business grew from approximately 100 completed installations to more than 1,200 sites, its annual revenues grew dramatically, and Frost and Sullivan named Avid the leader in market share across the DAM and MAM space.

Prior to joining Avid, Sam was CEO of Torque Systems, a systems integrator focused on media asset management and tiered storage systems for the entertainment and graphic arts industries in North America. At Torque, he and his team pioneered the use of pioneering digital asset management systems such as MediaBank, MediaBeacon and Telescope. Sam was also the co-founder of SeeFile Software, a developer of lightweight web based digital asset management software for the photo and print industries.
