Octopus Newsroom

Octopus 8 is a newsroom computer system designed for television and radio broadcasters. Octopus facilitates editorial collaboration between news team members at every stage of the newscast production process, from initial receipt of task notification to the moment the completed story goes to the teleprompter. Octopus also provides tools to publish your content to web and social media channels.

Octopus newsroom software runs natively on Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X. Mobile apps are available for Android and iOS tablets as well as smartphones. Octopus is suitable for all types and levels of operation, from a single channel with just a few bulletins per day to full-scale 24/7 news networks.
