Nexio® MOS Gateway
The Nexio® MOS Gateway is a key component of the Imagine Communications NewsForce™ HD/SD news platform, providing interoperability between MOS-compliant newsroom computer systems and NewsForce applications.
The Nexio MOS Gateway is suitable for newsroom systems of all sizes. It connects your newsroom computer system (NRCS) through the NRCS local area network (LAN) to the Nexio server system LAN. It provides communication between your NRCS and Nexio news applications using standard MOS protocol.
- Enables integration of Nexio MOS Gateway with AP ENPS®, Avid® iNEWS®, Octopus, Autocue QNews and Annova OpenMedia®
- Available as hardware and software bundle or software only
- Provides MOS protocol communications between the NRCS and all MOS-enabled NewsForce products
- Allows current media, rundown and script status to be provided to system users
- Passes lists of rundowns and script text in rundowns between the NRCS and NewsForce applications
- Forwards status updates of MOS objects to the newsroom computer system display when clips are created, updated, assigned to channels, cued and played
- Enables searching for media stored on the Nexio server system from within NRCS, using the NXMB ActiveX plug-in
- Enables clip preview within NRCS via the NXMB ActiveX plug-in, when used with the Nexio Global Proxy low-resolution browse and edit solution
- Supports Unicode for ASCII-based newsroom systems
- Supports device redundancy and workflow flexibility by enabling multiple MOS Playlist Managers to operate on the same rundown
- Maintains communication with NRCS via heartbeat commands
- Nexio MOS Playlist Manager
- Nexio MediaBase NRCS ActiveX plug-in (NXMB)
The Nexio MOS Gateway monitors changes in rundowns and scripts of the NRCS. It communicates these changes to all Nexio MOS applications, including Nexio MOS Playlist Manager and Nexio MediaBase ActiveX plug-in (NXMB), as well as to the newsroom system tools in Velocity ESX™, Velocity XNG™, Velocity PRX™, and Apple® Final Cut Pro®.
Status of content associated with MOS active rundowns is fed back to the newsroom system users. As status of media changes, users receive immediate notifications, including during playout.
Using the Nexio MOS Gateway, Nexio NewsForce interacts in real time with ENPS, Avid® iNEWS®, OCTOPUS, Autocue QNews and Annova OpenMedia® newsroom systems.
NewsForce users have direct access to MOS active rundowns and scripts. Users are able to create placeholders in scripts from inside the newsroom system, forming a link to the playout system for content that will be created later in the production process by Nexio ingest or editing systems.
