Octopus 8 is a newsroom computer system designed for use by television and radio broadcasters. Our software solution facilitates editorial collaboration between news team members at every stage of the newscast production process, from initial receipt of task notification to the moment the completed story goes to the teleprompter. Octopus goes even beyond by providing the tools to publish your content to web and social media channels from a single platform.
Octopus newsroom software runs natively on Linux, Microsoft Windows and Apple OS X. Mobile apps are available for Google Android and Apple iOS tablets as well as smartphones. Octopus is suitable for all types and levels of operation, from a single channel with just a few bulletins per day to full-scale 24/7 news networks.
