Launch Standalone MOS Config Web-Application

For setups where no Control Clients (Viz Trio/Viz Pilot Director) are part of the system, you can still launch a standalone MOS Config web-application to configure your Control Station to connect to Viz Gateway.

Setting up your Control Station as a MOS Client

The Media Sequencer running on your Control Station must first be configured to connect to a Viz Gateway.

On the the Control Station which runs the Media Sequencer, open the following page in a Web Browser: http://localhost:8580/app/mosconfig/mosconfig.html .

Note: It is important that the URL above connects to the Media Sequencer running on the Control Station, and not the Media Sequencer on the Gateway Server. See Gateway Server for details on how the Gateway Controller web-application is used to configure the Media Sequencer running on the Gateway Server.


MOS Client Status

In this scenario, the MOS client is the Media Sequencer. The MOS client must be configured to communicate via the MOS protocol to a Viz Gateway.

  • MOS Client Status shows whether the Media Sequencer is able to connect to the Viz Gateway.

  • You can also Start and Stop the local client.

MOS Client Settings

  • Gateway Host: Host name or IP of the machine running Viz Gateway.

  • Send available status back to NCS: Sends the available-status for elements containing clips and/or images back to the NCS as Ready or Not Ready.

  • Send local channel assignments back to NCS: It is possible to make last-minute changes to an element's playout channel in Viz Multiplay. The Media Sequencer then sends this channel assignment back to the newsroom system if this setting is enabled. If this setting is disabled, the local change may be overwritten on the next update from the newsroom system.

  • Send video status changed back to NCS: Sends the clip playback status (CUED, PLAYING, STOPPED) back to the NCS.

  • Auto-activate MOS playlists in profile: If no client application operates the MOS rundown (and if it's controlled by an automation system, for example) you can auto-activate all MOS playlist for a specific profile.

  • Apply Settings: Applies the changed settings without closing the window. This button is only enabled when changes have been made.
