Octopus to modernize the newsroom of TV 2/Bornholm

After many months of intense testing, the TV 2/Bornholm recently decided to implement Octopus X as the newsroom system of choice. With its enhanced collaboration and functionality for improved efficiency amongst its news staff, TV 2/Bornholm will also take advantage of some of the newer features of Octopus X including the social media integration, custom exports and integration with speech-to-text software.

TV 2/Bornholm is a popular regional broadcast channel based on Bornholm Island. As one of the seven popular Danish TV 2 stations, they are located at the most eastern end of Denmark close to the Swedish coast. As a news channel, with over 40% of the population regularly tuning in every evening, they were utilizing a subscription-based newsroom computer system but decided that they needed to upgrade their newsroom system to something more modern and fit-for-purpose. 

TV 2/Bornholm, as a 24-hour channel, in common with the other seven regional TV 2 stations, are independent companies financed exclusively through a TV license. The channel began broadcasting in September 1990 and the station also broadcasts news on TV 2's payment channel at selected times during the day.
