Additionally, as automation has become a synonym for operational efficiency and newsroom productivity, the Octopus system integrates with Vizrt’s Viz Mosart to allow production from a scripted environment. With this MOS-driven connection, journalists can handle multiple activities at the studio from their newsroom system.
Inside Octopus NRCS, users can easily select templates, previously prepared in the studio automation system, that will mandate the behaviour of devices in the newsroom including lighting, camera positions, sound effects, graphic effects, and more. Likewise, it encourages fast and in-depth coverage as journalists can easily add automation templates to story elements and make changes (such as camera positions) from the rundown view without running the plug-in.
Octopus’ unique plug-in-less approach permits users to perform all these workflows natively from the main interface, without having to launch these systems in parallel. Octopus newsroom system and Viz Mosart’s unique plug-in-less approach to automation ensures quality and speed while minimizing errors and cutting operating costs.
On top of the above the users may use the conventional way of plugin which is offered in most other NRCS solutions. With native HTML 5 support, Octopus news production system is right on the front line of modern newsroom systems, enabling tight integration with HTML5-based interfaces for graphics such as Viz Pilot.
