    Octopus Newsroom Sales Director Gabriel Jankó reports a lively and well-attended NAT EXPO in Moscow. Gabriel visited the event from Wednesday to Friday and met customers and many new faces to showcase the latest version of Octopus. The latest version of Octopus incorporates digital broadcasting trends that will be required by broadcasters in the future.

    "Television viewers across Russia are increasingly using smartphones and tablets to access their favourite television and radio channels," Gabriel comments.

    "On-Demand-Broadcasting provides viewers with the ability to choose from a selection of live events, news, sports, and electronic gaming on the go and when they want to. You only have to look at the success of Netflix’s and Amazon Prime to see the popularity. Octopus facilitates broadcasters with end-to-end tools required to manage ODB content right up to playout. The Octopus platform is truly unique as it offers both traditional linear and digital production for news, sports, eSports, and live events."

    ''The sound and video quality on smartphones have improved immensely over the past decade, essentially, replacing the need for expensive, bulky equipment, heavy cameras and sound equipment. Journalists can simply remove their smartphone from their pocket and convert it to a broadcast production system via the Octopus App. Essentially, this allows journalists to capture crucial moments on the go and send the content back to base within minutes'' adds Octopus Head of Marketing Adam Kennedy-Ripon.

    Finally, Octopus Newsroom would like to thank everyone for meting up at the NAT Expo, it was a pleasure talking to each of you.

    Although Octopus will not be exhibiting at NAT Expo this year, Gabriel Janko will be pleased meet you in Moscow and show you the latest 8.2 version. As a sneak peek we have shared some of our personal insights below from Gabriel.

    "TV viewing via cloud-connected devices is becoming increasingly popular in all major countries, not least in Russia," says Octopus Newsroom Sales Director Gabriel Jankó. "We will be promoting the latest end-to-end Octopus newsroom computer system. This is packed with new features enabling broadcasters to adapt easily to future technological demands and digital trends."

    "Octopus version 8.2 gives broadcasters the flexibility to create news for on-demand digital viewing platforms as well as traditional linear programme channels. Octopus empowers more than 250 channels around the world, including eSports, WebTV and live events coverage as well as mainstream news. It can be configured to handle any size of operation, from a single fully-automated news channel up to 24/7 multichannel broadcast network."

    "Journalists are under greater than ever pressure to get the stories out as quickly as possible, direct from the field. The new features in Octopus 8.2 amplify this workflow, facilitating real-time collaboration and editorial approval which are essential for journalists," adds Octopus Head of Marketing Adam Kennedy-Ripon. "Octopus provides the tools news producers need when and where they need it. It simplifies the workflow to maximise efficiency. Newsroom staff gain the freedom to work from any touch point. Octopus can convert the reporter's smartphone into a portable production device to be used for TV or radio interviews, photography and text editing. Once media assets are captured, they can be sent back to base for immediate finessing and playout."
