General Configuration

The General configuration tab contains Gateway’s basic settings.


Basic Settings

The following settings are global settings used by the Gateway.

  • MOS Lower Port: A listener port that the NCS connects to for sending media object related messages to the Gateway.

  • MOS Upper Port: A listener port that the NCS connects to for sending rundown related messages to the Gateway.

  • Control Station Port: A listener port that the control station Media Sequencer will connect to for communicating with the Gateway.

  • Log Heartbeat Messages: Adds the heartbeat messages to the Media Sequencer log file. The full MOS message will be logged when this setting is enabled.

  • Reconnect interval (sec): Specifies the number of seconds that Gateway should wait, when the connection is lost, before trying to reconnect to the newsroom system(s).

  • RO days to live: Sets the number of days the routing between a running order ID and control station IP should live. Gateway clears out all running orders that have not been updated for a given number of days. For details, see Active Running Orders section on active running order routing.

  • Heartbeat Interval: Sets the interval for how often heartbeat messages are sent to the NCS. 30 seconds is recommended.

  • Object Time Base: Sets the sampling rate of the object in samples per second. For PAL Video this would be 50. For NTSC it would be 60.
