NU-IP3T (NUIP3T)

IP Converter/Transmitter for NUCLeUS™

Overview

Transmits 4K, HD and SD video signals as low-latency IP data stream
The NU-IP3T converts video signals - including 4K, HD and SD resolutions - into a visually lossless or uncompressed*1 IP data stream for networked transmission from a variety of medical equipment at less than 1 frame latency*2.

The IP data comprises native video as a primary output and bandwidth optimised video (proxy stream) as a secondary output. This allows medical teams to view high resolution, uncompressed images within the OR during surgery, as well as transmitting the same video content optimised for lower network bandwidth outside the OR for recording, live video distribution and other applications.

The compact NU-IP3T is easily installed on a medical trolley, with its chemical-resistant exterior housing making it suitable for use in the OR. The NU-IP3T is complemented by the NU-IP3R that receives IP streams, converting them to 4K or HD visually lossless video data with low latency of less than 1 frame*2 for viewing on a surgical video monitor.

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

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

Features

Flexible Network Architecture
The NU-IP3T transmits any video stream from a connected medical device over a CAT5e or higher specification network cable as well as fibre network cables. Thus, it can easily be integrated with existing network infrastructures due to its low network load outside the OR.
Modality Control
The NU-IP3T is equipped with a GPIO interface to receive start/stop and other commands from connected modalities enabling surgeons to concentrate on their tasks without having to operate other equipment for video recording and still image capture.
Data Safety
Data and command interfaces to the NU-IP3T are encrypted using SSL, while video is 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.
User Feedback
The NU-IP3T provides valuable visual feedback for clinical teams in the Operating Room. A status LED confirms power and correct system unit operation, while blinking patterns indicate loss of network connection or absence of an IP address. 
A Variety of Video Formats
The NU‐IP3T supports SD via HD, up to 4K @60p 4:4:4 *3 video input. NU-IP3T now supports end-to-end transmission of non-16:9 aspect ratio images that are frequently encountered in interventional radiology environments. Dot-by-dot transfer mode avoids unwanted scaling of video streams, guaranteeing native image quality with Cath lab and hybrid OR radiology modalities.

An optional license is available to upgrade to NU-IP3T to support 4K resolution. The upgrade license can be applied remotely without having to change hardware and cabling even if implemented after initial installation.

For the detail of the supported resolutions and signals, please contact Sony dealer.

*3 For details of the supported signal types, resolutions and frequencies, please refer to the Instruction Manual.
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.
