Calling it a “new generation newsroom computer system“, the Octopus Newsroom company presented its new product Octopus6 capable of using independent platforms simultaneously, reaching free operating systems. According to Octopus Newsroom company CEO, Petr Stokuc, the Octopus6 is expected to find wider use among users in broadcasting, where the independancy of platforms and the fast access to information are key issues.

Octopus 6 brings a brand new Apple FCP plug-in that gives users full access to stories and scripts while editing a video footage. With this feature the users will be able to edit both video and text at the same time on one screen.

There are many new features as well as further fine-tuning from Octopus5 that can bring even more friendly working environment, detailed customisation and improved work with media to create the workflow that best meets the user’s requirements.
