MediaCorp Singapore gives a new impetus to its multi-lingual newsrooms
A new production system known as Octopus 7 has been selected by Singapore’s leading media company, MediaCorp to be at the heart of its multi-lingual newsrooms. The new system went live in February 2015, replacing the previous ENPS system.
MediaCorp needs an efficient, flexible, and cost-effective news solution to manage its news production demands since it operates numerous local, national and regional TV, radio and interactive channels..
As a next-generation solution, Octopus has sophisticated Twitter and YouTube connectivity, analysis and interactivity built-in. This will enable MediaCorp and its journalists to engage with audiences throughout the region both in terms of journalistic research and multi-platform delivery.
Petr Stokuč, Managing Director of Octopus Newsroom, commented, “This is a major installation as Singapore’s media plays a strategic role throughout the Asia-Pacific. MediaCorp’s news output is of paramount importance to the region so we at Octopus and Benchmark are delighted to have been selected to supply the new newsroom system.”
