In March, Divya Jain, our APAC Project Manager at Octopus Newsroom, paid a visit to our customer Al Rayyan TV in Doha.
Celebrating 10 years of the deployment of Octopus Newsroom Computer System in Al Rayyan TV, Dyvia was greeted by the channel’s Director of Engineering and Operations Mr. Mohamad Naim Al Said. She was given a tour of their modern newsroom, CAR room, MCR, PCRs, and studios. Using Octopus X, a variety of programs such as talk shows, sports debates, kid shows, and more are produced in these venues.
Dyvia also witnessed Octopus in action! Octopus daily users have adapted to working with this system with ease and highlighted its user-friendliness.
“I’m delighted to see how simple it is for users to work with Octopus. I spoke with several members of the production team, and they all said they are very pleased with Octopus X,” Dyvia says.
Pandemic restrictions made face-to-face interaction with friends and partners difficult. However, as these are withdrawn, we are happy to visit our customers and see how Octopus is supporting news production.
“Being on-site was fantastic! It was also an excellent opportunity to show customers all the features Octopus newsroom sytrem has to offer, and are perhaps, unknown to them. We are now collaborating with Al Rayyan TV on an upgrade and on-site training so that they can utilize Octopus to the fullest.”
