Fox Turkey has selected Octopus as its new newsroom management system after a three month evaluation process.

The Turkish broadcaster, associated with News Corp’s Fox Broadcasting Company, wanted a system that would simplify news operations, improve workflow and connect with other parts of the overall studio infrastructure. This includes a Vizrt graphics system, Autoscript teleprompter and Grass Valley playout/automation system.

The new Octopus solution will manage rundowns, assignments, story approval, newswires, RSS feeds, placeholders, low-res browsing and other tasks.

Octopus provides support for the Turkish language through its use of the Unicode universal character encoding scheme.
