Czech Republic – Singapore’s leading media company, MediaCorp, has selected Octopus7 to be at the heart of its multi-lingual newsrooms. The new production system went live in February 2015, replacing the previous ENPS system.
Octopus was awarded the project after an extended period of testing to assess its core functionality, multi-lingual proficiency. This was particularly important as MediaCorp serves an audience that is exceptionally diverse. Octopus Newsroom has native support for non-Latin scripts, making it ideal for multi-lingual environments. One key stipulation for the MediaCorp installation was support for a software suite that enables its journalists to create, edit, convert and publish Tamil content on Windows and Mac OS X operating environments.
