A rare graphic technique used by cnn, Fox News and other television news outlets to simultaneously display eight talking heads in two rows of four heads each. The term was first made popular by Comedy Central's Daily Show. The octobox can only be trumped by the increasingly rare nonobox and decabox
CNN had 8 financial experts talking at the same time so they had to break out the octobox.
