Media Object Server, commonly known as MOS Protocol is a communicating medium with NRCS (News Room Computer System) to provide information during news reporting in the media house. This sends the reporter updated information and data time to time within the span of reporting with no delay issue. This includes updation, deletion, creation or modification in the information and data.This spreads the data in the form of video editing, audio editing and still stores. MOS relieves the burden of extra hectic work of sending the updated information and data to NRCS directly by using men resource or computer operator to interface with one or more computers.
It brings changes in the information in three types of objects in the newsroom, descriptive data for media objects where all the information and data to be deleted, created or modified through MOS. MOS informs NRCS about changes in the content so that NRCS can manipulate the information. Playlist exchange is for keeping the sequence same after the changes and modification in the information and data; and Status Exchange where MOS informs about the status of specific clips like playlist items or running orders or MOS system itself. All these information are sent to the NRCS as latest updates and amendments in the running data while reporting by an anchor in the news studio.
MOS protocol deals with and for the equipment vendors, software vendors and end users. MOS integrates the information like video editing, audio editing, and graphics with the getting command from the NRCS. MOS provides media project metadata to NRCS. An NRCS is expected to save this changed metadata in its local format to enable NRCS users to search the changed information & data and link media objects to stories in running orders. A Newsroom Computer System provides running order information to a Media Object Server so that it can playback the media objects in the sequence selected by users on an NCRS. Both the NRCS and MOS can originate the messages like sending the updated data. This originating system must wait for a response after sending each message. If it is not responding, we should restart the connection.
The MOS has become an essential part to the NRCS in the media house to rundown the updated information and data. Newsroom Computer system automates operation of newsroom that includes script writing or editing to broadcast content. This process includes many devices and each device vendor has its set of protocol to talk with NRCS. MOS protocol has made easy to deliver and exchange the information to the NRCS. That means, now journalists or reporters don’t have to wait for so long for a new or updated stories to report in the newsroom, MOS can talk and send the updated information in seconds to the NRCS. The tremendous growth of media industry inspires broadcast industry to introduce a standard protocol for the communication between NRCS and MOS devices.
Before the emergence of MOS in public domain, it was really difficult to update the information like script/story editing at the end moment using man power, device driver in the broadcast and television industry. This expands the limitations of hiring vendors for the particular MOS system and software to bring it in the usage during reporting in the media house. MOS provides media project metadata to NRCS. Journalists (end users) now feel more convenient with the MOS protocol and executing the report. They don’t need to rely upon other time consuming resources. MOS automates all the edited information and data to the reporters reporting desk. The updation of the data has become easy and saves time also.
Time Salvage: Reduces extra efforts such as replace an interface of the story rundown from one device to another. MOS reduces dependence on human resource which affects a continuous interruption mode of a reporter while reporting the news or story.
Creating Market: The need of MOS Protocol and MOS devices has been increasing continuously in these passing years so as it is creating vast market. Vendors are increasing rapidly that creates hub of vendors which also make a vast option for the end users.
Quality Use: Since the MOS has become very essential and one to rely upon, so the vendors are also increasing which led a competitive environment. Somehow, this forces the vendors to produce a quality protocol. MOS has now become a quality protocol with non- stuck operation of exchange of information and data between NRCS and MOS.
Samvad understands the MOS language and that makes it efficient to execute MOS protocol in terms of updating and changing information and data. Samvad Teleprompters are best tested to integrate with ENPS and Octopus NRCS. Samvad is the one major element to run with the MOS and can give quick results like sending the updated information to the newsroom.
Send and Receive Rundowns: Samvad makes easier to communicate during the whole span of reporting. It sends and receives stories likesome stories are to be edited or new story or news has been emerging currently. But the reporter is not aware of that, so he needs to be updated and that Samvad does efficiently with understanding the MOS language. Samvad deals with ease like receiving the current story rundown and immediately sending the updated version.
Real-Time addition/ deletion/ updation in rundown story text: Samvad compliances with MOS. It enables addition or deletion of any story or text to the story rundown (collection of multiple stories) during run-time of one particular story on the teleprompter. This allows making changes in the story while reporting in the studio. This works as if the anchor is giving the speech and feels like some of the stories or texts are to be added or deleted at immediate run-time, so he/she can operate the same when he/she is reporting. News anchor can also import one whole story during story run-time.
Personalize MOS Commands: Samvad has got the feature to personalize the MOS commands. For example, an anchor is reading the text and also is getting the MOS commands (updated information). So, anchor can put the MOS commands in inverted colors which will create a difference between current reading texts and MOS commands.
