ToolsOnAir Announces Partnership with OCTOPUS Newsroom

Highslide JSAt the recent NAB Show in Las Vegas, ToolsOnAir and OCTOPUS Newsroom introduced the integration of the ToolsOnAir just: Broadcast Suite and OCTOPUS6, fully featured, multi-platform newsroom system.

OCTOPUS6 NRCS is a multi-platform solution running on MacOS X, Windows and Linux platforms. With more than 90 installations worldwide and 40 in India alone, OCTOPUS6 has become a proven standard for newsroom integration, helping customers to improve their newsroom workflow. ToolsOnAir´s long term relationship with OCTOPUS Newsroom has already resulted in the development of a highly generic MOS gateway that is easy to install and provides perfect integration with the OCTOPUS platform. The new partnership offers a highly cost-effective complete news production on MacOS X, making it the ideal solution for small channels or channels with standard workflow. "We are proud to announce the integration with OCTOPUS Newsroom," said Gilbert Leb, ToolsOnAir´s VP of Sales."It´s been on our product development roadmap for some time now, and we´re all very pleased with the results." The completed integration is targeted to coincide with the upcoming IBC Show. "We are very pleased to see our newsroom system integrated to another Mac-based products," said Jan Pulpan, director of Sales and Engineering at OCTOPUS Newsroom. "It is particularly great to see that ToolsOnAir´s integration implements more than just a standard MOS workflow. It provides complete integration of Final Cut Pro into the production chain using the OCTOPUS NLE plug-in. It also provides access to ToolsOnAir´s graphics features to all journalists in the newsroom. Journalists can position CGs using low resolution versions of finished clips. ToolsOnAir and Octopus have prepared one of the best and most complete integrations available." The integration will be shown at this year´s NAB.
