Patrick Markowski, Head of Technology at BILD: “We are very satisfied with the Octopus newsroom system and LOGIC’s support. The system runs flawlessly from the first day of broadcast — and has already been tried and tested at WELT Fernsehen for many years. From configuration and commissioning to the training of our editors and technicians, LOGIC proved to be a very competent and agile partner. This made it possible to implement additional requirements during the project, such as speedy breaking news templates.”
In addition to the usual functions of a newsroom system, Octopus X offers many other tools that support remote working and new digital publishing trends or integrate AI approaches into the workflow. Due to continuous development, Octopus X is perfectly adapted to the needs of news formats. Because of current Covid-19 restrictions, the collaborative functions play out their potential to the full. Editors can work simultaneously on the same script. With the app for mobile devices, journalists and editors have full access to assets and workflows from “remote”. In addition to its extensive core functionality, Octopus X has an open API that enables customisations for additional workflows.
