Brainstorm supports Octopus Newsroom22 October 2013
The latest version of BrainNews, Brainstorm Multimedia’s template-based graphics solutions for news, now supports Octopus Newsroom computer systems for broadcast TV.
BrainNews is a fully scalable, MOS-compatible system that integrates graphics into News environments, allowing journalists and producers to customise and combine pre-defined 3D graphics within their news workflow. Octopus users can now use BrainNews and Aston 3D-based graphics and templates, which can be chosen by journalists to edit details, incorporate these graphics into their rundown lists or use the BrainNews Controller to send them to air, under the Octopus environment.
“BrainNews is a flexible product that integrates with the most common newsroom systems, and following this strategy we are very pleased to announce its integration with Octopus Newsroom, one of the most significantly growing newsroom systems there are,” commented Héctor Viguer, engineering director at Brainstorm.
“We are very happy to announce our partnership with Brainstorm,” added Milan Varga, customer support and technical partner manager at Octopus Newsrooms. “The BrainNews MOS-compatible 3D graphics solution combines with Octopus to deliver a top quality, integrated news production system. Together we offer a class-leading solution for news production. Integration with BrainNews simplifies the workflow, by allowing the journalists and producers to easily assign graphics templates to their stories and build rundowns.”
