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.
