KO:R, the planning and collaboration tool for newsrooms
KO:R, the youngest of Octopus’ products, will also be displayed at NAB this year. As a stand-alone planning and collaboration tool, it can be used in newsrooms with an outdated news production system that lacks planning features. As well as can serve the needs of newsrooms that do not use any software to manage news production. KO:R supports collaborative workflows and incorporates planning to story-centric production by offering spaces for newsgathering, storytelling, task management, and collaborative content creation.
It supports broadcasters of all sizes. Being subscription-based, it adapts to the budgets and requirements of small and large enterprises. Plans and modules are customized to the requirements of the organization. Likewise, as a cloud-based solution, it operates in any browser and device with an internet connection. Relieving organizations from upfront infrastructure investments or having an IT team in-house to manage the upkeep.
