Gateway is Vizrt’s implementation of the Media Object Server (MOS) Protocol. It enables users of a Newsroom Computer System (NCS) to perform instant updates on running orders (rundown/playlist) in Vizrt’s content control applications such as Viz Trio and Viz Pilot.

As Gateway supports multiple NCS connections, it allows content control applications to request and monitor multiple running orders from multiple newsroom systems. By supporting the MOS protocol, Vizrt is able to integrate a wide range of its products with Newsroom Computer Systems that supports the MOS Protocol.

This guide is based on the functionality of Gateway 3.0. The Gateway Controller Client’s graphical interface is browser-based.

IMPORTANT! Gateway 3.0 is available in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. It is recommended to use the 64-bit version unless there is a specific reason to stay with 32-bit. Future releases will only be available as 64-bit.

Gateway has previously been known as Vizrt Viz Gateway, Viz Gateway or Viz MOS Gateway. As of version 2.0 the preferred name is simply Gateway.
