Prague-based developer of news production and broadcasting software, Octopus Newsroom, has been picked by Colombia's Cablenoticias to power its news management system and automate the network's workflow.

octopusHaving using Avid's iNews until now, Cablenoticias will deploy Octopus' MOS solution which integrates the whole news process, from coverage and editing to presentation, teleprompter and social networks interaction.

Cablenoticias has found an ally in social networks, especially Twitter, and is using them to draw attention to its online video platform. Octopus' social media hub integrates social information into the editing interface, making it easier for journalists to include this content in their audiovisual stories.

"Lately, we have been getting many requests from Latin America, as Octopus software has an open licence system which gives a clear advantage when it comes to adapt the system to any project," said Carole Pigeard, Octopus' sales manager for the region.

The solution has been integrated into Cablenoticias' workflow through the company Tools 4 Media, which deployed and readied the system within three days.
