Astro Awani implements Octopus 8

Published: ASIA

MALAYSIA: Astro Awani, a news station serving Malaysia and Brunei, has been equipped with an Octopus 8 management reporting tool. The system was reportedly selected due to its compatibility with the network’s existing Grass Valley solution while also handling social media sources as well as more traditional news feeds.

‘Octopus 8 integrates easily into our existing workflow, making the transition from Avid iNews to Octopus very easy for our newsroom staff,’ said Astro Awani’s head of operations, Tanuja Singh. ‘It helps track the productivity of the newsroom in terms of story creation, duration of selected stories or topics on air. The Octopus team provided strong support during a detailed pre-sale demonstration of the system, giving us every confidence that Octopus 8 will meet our current needs as well as being fully scalable for the future.’

‘Octopus 8 replaces third-party newsroom software so the project included migrating three years of archived data,’ said Octopus’ APAC director, Miro Rusko. ‘Post-installation training was provided onsite by our APAC senior support engineer and team leader Ermias Amare.’

‘Our operators find the Octopus graphic interface very efficient to work with, including fast access to archived files and the ability to get stories to air quickly,’ concluded Mr Singh. ‘Our digital newsroom team are also impressed with the user-friendly application on mobile devices, allowing reporters to share video and still images to television and web platforms easily and a lot faster.’
