B92 channel successfully running Octopus newsroom system

Republic of Serbia -- From the beginning of April 2008, the Serbian 24/7 news channel B92 has been running Octopus newsroom system successfully for 24 hours a day, which surpassed the expectations of B92 representatives. According to B92 Deputy News Director, Mr.Igor Bozic, it was impossible to start 24 hours news channel without a newsroom system and the Octopus was the ideal to start with.

Having done all the implementations in February 2008 and dealing with only small issues and details, Octopus newsroom system has been running very well and not recording any crushes during its 24/7 operation.

Although Octopus was installed as the first newsroom system of B92, it was an ideal system because the installation and hardware did not require high investments and the access to the newsroom system from any computer in the building became much easier.

Saying“It is easier to work with Octopus and it makes all B92 departments constantly informed about changes in rundown”, the B92 Deputy News Director, Mr.Igor Bozic, showed his overall contentment with Octopus newsroom system.
