NU-IP40D (NUIP40D)Discontinued

Medical IP Converter (DVI/HDMI version)


Convert 4K surgical video images to IP for streaming and sharing across hospital networks
4K imaging is becoming increasingly prevalent in modern hospital environments. With four times the resolution of Full HD, 4K lets medical staff view video images from surgery and other clinical procedures with enhanced resolution, contrast and colour accuracy.

The NU-IP40D IP Converter plays a central role in the distribution of images acquired from the latest generation of 4K medical modalities such as endoscopes, boom arm cameras and surgical microscopes.

Equipped with DVI and HDMI interfaces for integration with medical imaging systems, the converter can be set for operation either as a 'transmitter' or 'receiver'. Digital video images captured in the integrated Operating Room (OR), consulting room or treatment centre are converted to IP using the NU-IP40D. Video data can then be streamed via the hospital network to anywhere on the healthcare campus. At its destination, IP is converted back to SDI digital video using a separate NU-IP40S unit for output to a wide range of displays and recording devices.

Transmission is near-real time, with no perceptible latency. Unlike conventional analogue video, image quality it not degraded by being sent over lengthy cable runs.

The IP Converter has two SFP+ transceiver modules pre-inserted at the time of shipment.


High quality video transmission
The NU-IP40D can transmit high-quality video signals at 4K or Full HD resolution.
Transmit compressed or uncompressed 4K video over IP
Uncompressed 4K video signals can be transmitted using two network cables. Alternatively, compressed 4K signals can be transmitted with no visible image quality degradation using one network cable.
Reliable, low latency transmission over IP
Converted 4K video signals are transmitted over IP networks in near real time, with extremely low latency that's effectively imperceptible. Powerful Forward Error Correction (FEC) technology assists signal integrity, even under 'noisy' network conditions that can cause packet loss - such as RF electromagnetic interference from electronic scalpels.
Downconversion from 4K to HD
If required the NU-IP40D can downconvert 4K video streamed via the network to HD, for viewing on lower-resolution HD medical display devices that do not support 4K inputs.
Safeguard against accidental disconnection
An system alarm signal notification is output if a LAN cable is accidentally disconnected during use.
RS-232C control
The optional software accessory, Network System Manager, allows control of other devices connected to the IP converter using the OR controller (available separately) connected via the RS-232C port.
