TV and online journalists at a 24/7 Chinese-language news broadcaster based in New York City will begin using the Octopus newsroom system.
The newsroom system project at New Tang Dynasty Television includes many Octopus app licenses, the company says.
The app will give the broadcaster’s journalists in the field access to all wires, rundowns and assignments via their iPhones, iPads and Android devices.
Journalists also can file from the field, edit stories and preview teleprompter text with the app.
“Using the Octopus app, we can send assignment notifications to specific television reporters,” said New Tang Dynasty TV Chief Engineer Russ Siew.
“They in turn can use their mobile phone or tablet to capture audio and video content and then edit stories in the field. They can then submit stories for approval complete with stills, full motion video and sound.”
More information is available on the Octopus website.
