IP Converter/Receiver for NUCLeUS™
Image of the following product: NU-IP3R


Converts IP data streams to video signals for viewing on a medical monitor
The NU-IP3R is complemented by the NU-IP3T (IP Transmitter) that converts medical imaging sources to an IP data stream for networked transmission to other devices on the NUCLeUS network.

The NU-IP3R (IP Receiver) receives IP data with high quality and low latency of less than 1 frame*1 through higher specification network cable or fiber network interfaces from a NU-IP3T converter (transmitter). IP data comprising visually lossless video, or uncompressed*2 video and control signals are converted to 4K, HD, SD or 3D 2D video signals for display on a connected medical monitor.

Converted video streams can be displayed in a variety of different formats for convenient viewing in the Operating Room. Preconfigured layouts include quad-view, a combination of PIP, and PAP layout options.

Note: This product is available as part of the NUCLeUS platform only, not to be sold separately.

*1. This is for native stream. Based on Sony internal testing. Latency varies and depends on usage conditions.
*2 Uncompressed video requires 10G fiber network interfaces. Availability may vary depending on the country. For further information please contact your nearest Sony dealer.


Flexible Network Architectures
The NU-IP3R can receive, handle and accommodate any video streams from the NU-IP3T, or IP cameras over CAT5e or higher specification network cable, or fiber network cable.

Higher specification network cable can be used with existing network infrastructures under a relatively low network load outside the OR. Sony’s IP Converter technology can therefore easily be integrated into existing hospital network infrastructure.
A Wide Variety of Video Formats
NU‐IP3R supports video outputs from HD, up to 4K 3D @60p 4:4:4*3. To achieve 4K image workflow, the image source needs to be 4K resolution and the optional 4K license needs to be applied to the NU-IP3T, but no additional 4K license is required for the NU-IP3R. Furthermore, 4K 3D and HD 3D videos can be converted to 2D 3D depending on the monitors.

*3 For the details of the supported signal types, resolutions and frequencies, please refer to the Instruction Manual.
Data Safety
Data and control interfaces to the NU-IP3R are encrypted using SSL. Bandwidth optimised streams are always secured with AES-128 encryption used with a GCM rolling key scheme. This prevents third-party eavesdropping, spoofing and other tampering to ensure the integrity of data between the transmitter, receiver and server.
Multiple Display Layouts
The NU-IP3R can receive additional HD proxy streams (max 4 streams in total) on top of the 4K native stream and can display these in different layouts. A set of preconfigured layouts include quad-view*4, PIP, and PAP, and these can be combined in a number of different layout options. 4K 3D and HD 3D native streams in Line by Line are also supported for these multiple layouts.

*4 Optional license (NU-IP3RE) is necessary for quad-view functionality.
Discreet Mounting
The NU-IP3R can be ‘invisibly’ mounted between the boom arm and the surgical monitor using the optional NUA-BK30 mounting bracket. The bracket can also be used to mount the NU-IP3R on the back of a larger wall mounted display.
Safety Feature
The NU-IP3R can automatically detect IP transmission failure and remotely control the display device to switch to a secondary video signal input as a safety feature.
Visual Feedback
The NU-IP3T provides valuable visual feedback for clinical teams in the Operating Room. A status LED confirms power and correct system operation, while blinking patterns indicate loss of network connection or absence of an IP address.
Compliance with medical standards
This product is distributed to the US and EU as a medical device and satisfies product safety standards (e.g. IEC 60601-1). For more details, please contact your nearest Sony sales office or an authorized dealer.
