This morning I met up with OCTOPUS CEO Peter Stokuc to talk about his company's updated OCTOPUS6 newsroom computer system. Peter says that for the new OCTOPUS system the core functions have been revamped to make operation quicker and more intuitive. Even with all these changes, OCTOPUS6 is still backwards compatible.
