The MOS Incredible thing happened...

OnTheAir MOS Gateway is the middleman between your NRCS system and OnTheAir Video, Softron's playout application using the MOS protocol.

Integrate with your Newsroom Computer System (NRCS)

OnTheAir MOS Gateway brings your NRCS workflow into OnTheAir Video in a way no other product can. Active running orders are immediately available to OnTheAir Video with story titles and MOS object status. Producers can add, remove, or rearrange stories and the playlist is immediately updated.

Included Webpage Control

OnTheAir MOS Gateway includes an HTML plugin accessible directly from ENPS, or any browser. There you can easily create MOS objects and edit their linked media, file names, or duration, and you can preview the content. Quickly filter media by name or by objects with missing media.

Make Your Video Server Play and Work

OnTheAir Video's ability to trigger routers, ATEMs, graphics, GPI devices, or non-destructively edit media is supported in OnTheAir MOS Gateway. Even better, MOS objects retain their link to the media. Edits to the media stay when rearranging stories or reusing media objects in other running orders. Fix a spelling error once and it is fixed for every show.

One App. Many Uses.

OnTheAir MOS Gateway makes content creation easier. Once the playlist is in OnTheAir Video, use an ATEM or Tricaster to trigger the video playback for live shows, or schedule a time for the playlist to run on its own. Or do both at the same time, as one OnTheAir MOS Gateway can serve multiple OnTheAir Video instances.

Powerful "template" workflow

Create reusable action templates in OnTheAir Video to apply on media. Control your switcher input, run a macro, trigger MIDI devices, and much more. Update the template and OnTheAir MOS Gateway updates every MOS object that uses it.

About these specifications

We know that some of our users can not upgrade their macOS very often. This is why Softron tries to maintain compatibility with older versions of macOS as much as possible, but it is not always possible to achieve. Because Operating Systems are usually significantly improved over previous versions, Softron must use many of the more capable built-in functionalities inherent in Apple's latest OS releases. Failing to do so would mean that Softron software would essentially be blocked from using the new Frameworks provided in the OS. For this reason, Softron's free support is provided only on the current and previous macOS versions. Also, most of our tests will be done on these macOS versions, and only basic tests will be done on the previous OS. We will always try to help, but in some cases, the best solution is to upgrade your macOS to a more recent version.

Softron does not warrant that these recommended configurations will always meet specific user requirements. They are intended as guidelines and are based on extensive testing that Softron has done, they can be changed without notice. Hardware, drivers, software and operating systems change regularly and we advise users and prospective users to evaluate their requirements in their specific environment/workflow using Softron demo licenses that are available for downloading from Softron's web site.
