Integration via MOS protocol

MOS Protocol is widely used to enable communication between newsroom systems and controlled broadcast devices such as media servers. Typically, this is a two-way communication. The newsroom system maintains a current running order on controlled devices, while the devices return media item status. iNEWS supports MOS through a dedicated Gateway and also supports the use of ActiveX controls, which are typically used to provide close integration with controlled devices.
