NXL-FR316 (NXLFR316)

SDI-IP signal processing unit


The NXL-FR316 is a 3RU-sized rack-mountable frame which provides the power supply for optional boards.
Rack mountable frame for various SDI-IP option boards –NXLK-IP50Y, NXLK-IP51Y etc.
The NXL-FR316 is a 3RU rack mountable frame capable of holding up to 16 option boards. With two power supplies to provide redundancy, the unit is ideal for interconnecting SDI equipment with IP-based infrastructure.
16 Flexible Slots For SDI-IP Conversion Option Boards
With 16 open slots*, the NXL-FR316 signal processing unit enables flexible loading and combination of optional NXLKIP40F or NXLK-IP45F boards. This means you can configure the system to fit your precise requirements.

NXLK-IP50Y, one of option boards, supports both 4K and HD video signals. Equipped with 8x 1.5/3G-SDI I/O ports, it can convert signals from SDI to IP and from IP to SDI. As standard it supports SDI-IP conversion with frame synchronisation. This can be optionally expanded to up/down conversion and SDR/HDR conversion.

NXLK-IP51Y -12G SDI-IP Converter Board- offers two 1.5/3G-SDI bi-directional and two 12G-SDI x2 bi-directional ports, plus dual SFP28 (25Gb Ethernet) ports for network connection redundancy. Compatible with ST 2110-20/30/40 streaming formats and offering very low latency signal conversion, it’s ideal for integration in real-time IP Live production environments.

NXLK-IP40F, supports 4K/HD signals for SDI-to-IP and IP-to-SDI conversions.

NXLK-IP45F, enables audio signal to be transmitted via IP as well. Status LEDs on the front panel of the unit allow real-time monitoring, with reference input and reference time input and output status provided.

*When used with the optional XLK-IP50Y or NXLK-IP51Y, available slots on NXL-FR316 are reduced to 12.
