MOS Device Settings in RealityHub
Select the device from the NCS Devices area
Click on the MOS Device Settings button
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 with 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.

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
