A new take on storytelling
From planning to video gathering to delivery, we’ve got you covered.
Easy to use
Octopus 11 beautiful UI allows even easier navigation. All across the system edges are softer, graphics are sharper, and spaces are thought-through.
Octopus 11 provides for more personalization in many sections of the system and remembers the changes regardless of where you launch it from.
Octopus now works in the dark! To provide you with a better experience, our UI is now available in a dark palette. Dark mode is not just trendy, but it is also ideal for teams working in dark spaces such as PCR rooms.
“Our team thought of everything. We have examined every pixel to create the smoothest experience for customers. Edges are softer across the system, graphics are sharper, and personalization is pushed to the next level.”

Follow our journey in the US
A blast from the past
The story began on the other side of the ocean, when Octopus NRCS was installed for the very first time in the Czech Republic. Yet, expansion to the United States had always been a goal of ours.
Octopus completed its first installation in the United States for Aljazeera’s Washington bureau in 2007. This provided us with new prospects in the United States, and together with continued product development, enabled us to establish our first offices in the country. The New York office allows us to keep a close eye on trends and demands in this growing industry.
The US is now a top destination for our products. These are spread all over the country in more than 20 newsrooms. Likewise, cooperation with local technology partners ensures a fully-adaptable solution for news production.
