Octopus Newsroom to Demonstrate Expanded Octopus 8.1 at Broadcast Asia 2018
Octopus Newsroom will demonstrate the expanded feature set of its powerful and innovative newsroom computer system on stand 6J2-01 at Broadcast Asia 2018 in Singapore, June 26-28. The Octopus team at the show will include Peter Stoku, Gabriel Jankó, Lukáš Kotek, Miro Rusko and Jan Polak.
Optimised for use in television, radio, sports and esports newsrooms, Octopus provides all the facilities required from start to completion of the news production process plus the tools to publish content to web and social media channels.
Octopus is scalable from a single channel with just a few bulletins per day to full-scale 24/7 networks. Software-based, it runs natively on Linux, Apple OS X and Microsoft Windows. Mobile apps for Google Android and Apple iOS tablets as well as smartphones give reporters and editors working remotely instant access to all wires, rundowns and assignments. Field-based staff can also edit stories within a rundown, preview prompter text and create wires and reports in the field.
Octopus version 8.1 adds a record number of new capabilities designed to increase newsroom efficiency. These include:
* Addition of user rights for MOS devices.
* Advanced clip and rundown management.
* Default custom print form per menu item.
* Detachable notification widgets.
* Drag-and-drop of emails to topic from the most often used desktop email clients.
* Enhanced assignment sorting and grouping.
* Fast clip insertion/replacement.
* Fast conform of rundown timing after a rehearsal.
* Fast story editing.
* Freely customisable colour coding of main menu items.
* Journalist app can now record audio clips for easy attachment to the relevant story.
* Live on-air insertion of social media posts.
* Named rundowns can be displayed in the main menu.
* Repeatable assignments now supported.
* Rules-based archiving of social media content.
* Social media integration enhanced with the ability to handle Facebook comments.
* Twitter posting now allows 280 characters instead of the former limit of 140 characters.
* Video can now be posted direct from Octopus to Twitter as well.
A key feature of the Broadcast Asia exhibit will be the successful use of Octopus for sports broadcasting. This application generally centres on a more spontaneous presentation style than the tightly scripted approach used in most news productions. Octopus is successfully used in both roles.
Founded in 1998, Octopus Newsroom (www.octopus-news.com) is today the world's leading producer of newsroom computer systems with more than 50 MOS partners. Octopus Newsroom advocates an open ecosystem using the MOS protocol which enables operators to choose freely among high-quality providers of graphics, playout, MAM, prompters, traffic-handing and advertising solutions. Octopus Newsroom has successfully installed systems into more than 300 channels around the world. Based on Unicode, Octopus Newsroom products support all major character sets including Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, and Vietnamese.
