The image above shows the default MOS Module Configuration interface on RealityHub.

Adding a MOS Device

To fine-tune the RealityHub MOS Module:
  • Go to the MOS Module and select the Configuration
  • Click on the + (Plus) icon to Add a new NCS Device
As soon as you click on the Add button, RealityHub adds a default NCS Device.

MOS Device Settings in RealityHub

  • Select the device from the NCS Devices area
  • Click on the MOS Device Settings button
MOS Device Settings
  • MOS ID: REALITYHUBMOS is the default MOS ID. You can change it per your setup, as the example image above shows, or you can leave it as a default, but it must have the same with the mosID in the Octopus settings.
  • MOS Version: Select the MOS Version matching the Octopus
  • Heartbeat Interval: The area you can define the frequency of heartbeat interval.
  • Encoding: Choose a multibyte encoding (UTF-8 or UCS-2BE) matching your workflow.
  • Hostname / IP Adress: IP address of the computer your RealityHub Server is installed.
The following two ports are designated MOS Protocol ports to communicate with the NCS automation.
  • MOM Port (Lower Port) [NCS] & [MOS]: Define a port number that matches with the Octopus Media Port
  • RO Port (Upper Port) [NCS] & [MOS]: Define a port number that matches with the Octopus Rundown Port
RealityHub uses Port 10540 and Port 10541 for communicating with NSC devices using MOS protocols 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

MOS Settings via Octopus

Please keep that in mind; every MOS Device Settings in the RealityHub must match the Octopus Settings.
Modify all the parameters to exactly match with RealityHub MOS Device Settings.

Activating the ZD PLUGIN for Octopus

To establish a bridge between Octopus and the RealityHub, you must activate ZD Plugin.
To do that:
In your device settings:
  • Select Plugins
  • Click the Add button
In the Plugin configuration window, fill in the areas shown in the image above and click OK.
Note: Width and Height can be different based on your needs, such as 1920x1080 or similar.
The Implementation property on the image above is for illustrative purposes only.
You must define your RealityHub Server IP Adress in Implementation as following: http://<YOUR RealityHub SERVER IP ADRESS>/?modules=hub.mos_gateway&mode=mosplugin. Copy MOS Plug-in URL button also does the same job as shown in the image above.
