Compact and Octopus form service partnership Intellectual property rights management company Compact Media Group and content management and delivery firm Octopus TV have agreed to promote each other’s services.

The deal will also give Compact’s clients a free trial of the Octopus system, which includes exclusive service enhancements. Compact Media Group chief executive David Johnson (pictured on the left) said: “With a business ethos that is in keeping with our own, it makes perfect sense to endorse them and embark on a mutually beneficial working relationship.” Octopus TV provides digital file delivery and archiving, as well as encoding, transcoding and conversion, live streaming and video-ondemand services.
