Reality Hub MOS Configuration for Octopus

Before you begin, please keep that in mind; every MOS Device Settings in the Reality Hub must match the Octopus Settings.

The image above shows the default MOS Module Configuration interface.

Adding MOS Device

  • Go to the Main Menu > Configuration > MOS Module and select Configuration.

  • Click on the + (Plus) icon to Add a new NCS Device.

As soon as you click on the Add button, Reality Hub adds a default NCS Device.

MOS Device Settings in Reality Hub

  • Select the device from the NCS Devices area.

  • Click on the MOS Device Settings button as shown above.

  • MOS ID: Define a MOS installation name. REALITYHUBMOS is the default MOS ID. You can change it depending on your setup or leave it as a default, but you must define the same mosID in your NCS settings.

  • MOS Version: Select the MOS Version matching your NCS.

Reality Hub 1.XXX supports MOS 2.6, 2.8, and 2.8.5.

  • Heartbeat Interval: The area where you can define the frequency of heartbeat interval.

  • Encoding: Choose a multibyte encoding (UTF-8, UCS-2BE, UTF-16LE, UTF-16BE) matching your workflow.

  • Hostname / IP Address: NRCS MOS Gateway IP Address.

  • MOM Port (Lower Port) [NCS] & [MOS]: Define a port number that matches the Octopus Media Port.

  • RO Port (Upper Port) [NCS] & [MOS]: Define a port number that matches the Octopus Rundown Port.

MOS Lower Port (10540) refers to Media Object Metadata and MOS Upper Port (10541) is related to the Running Order.

The abovementioned two ports are selected MOS Protocol ports to communicate with the NRCS automation.

Reality Hub uses Port 10540 and Port 10541 for communicating with your NRCS device using MOS Protocol as a default setup. You can change it depending on your setup.

There is a third port some systems use which is called Query Port, and its default value is 10542.

MOM & RO Ports must be accessible and not filtered or blocked.

Connection Indicators

As soon as you click on the Add NCS Devices Button (plus icon), the default configuration shows Outgoing and Incoming connections for Upper Port and Lower Port, as shown above.
