Al Rayyan TV purchases Octopus

The new Qatari channel, Al Rayyan TV, has become the first Arabic broadcast customer for Octopus Newsroom in the Gulf Cooperation Council countries. The Octopus6 newsroom computer system was installed at the end of April leaving just over two weeks to the first transmission. Tony Jabbour, senior broadcast engineer of Al Rayyan TV, pointed out that, “The Al Rayyan newsroom staff were experienced but had not used the Octopus Newsroom system before. That proved not to be a problem as they took to Octopus very quickly and without any trouble. And when the station opened they were very happy to use it on air.” Jan Pulpan, Octopus director for Sales and Engineering commented, “Our first Arabic broadcast customer has set a high standard. To get the station up and running in such a short time owes a lot to the professionalism of the Al Rayyan technicians and operational staff. They were able to use their NCRS experience gained on other systems and apply it directly to Octopus6. We wish them every success.”
