There’s a new look and a host of new features aimed at improving the user experience in the latest release of newsroom solution Octopus 11, which is being unveiled at IBC.

Octopus 11 provides a unified news production platform, deployed on-premises or in the cloud, that enables production from anywhere. The system streamlines the entire production workflow, whether it is story-centric, rundown-centric, or a hybrid of both. The software covers everything from newsgathering to planning, editing, and delivering multi-platform content. The redesigned interface of version 11 introduces a dark mode and greater plasticity in the menu and toolbar.

Gabriel Janko, COO and Sales Director at Octopus, said: “IBC is a unique opportunity for customers to see and try our solutions and is the first European venue for the presentation of Octopus 11. As relevant newsrooms across Europe widely use our solutions – WELT and BILD TV in Germany, CH Media in Switzerland, CNN Prima in the Czech Republic and hundreds of others – users are eager to see the latest updates to the user interface and new features to complement its already powerful skill set. We are sure it will unlock new prospects for broadcasters.”
