Overview
Features
The NXL-IP55 IP Live Production Unit is an IP
transmission device that allows upstream and
downstream transmission of HD video signals, audio
signals, and various control signals with low latency of
less than one field (excluding network delays). Using the
unit allows you to configure a live production system over
a network.
Network synchronization
Devices can be synchronized via a network. Low-latency
video transmission is made possible during live
production by eliminating the need for synchronization
via a frame synchronizer.
Various transmission signals
Up to four video channels are available for transmission
as well as up to three in the same direction. Ten audio
channels (five pairs) are available for transmission as well
as eight in the same direction. Eight GPIO channels, six
tally channels, and one channel for a synchronization
signal are also available.
Transmittable Signals
Video signals
Up to four channels are available for HD-SDI signals (up
three channels in the same direction).
1080/50i, 1080/59.94i, 720/50P, 720/59.94P
Signals with differing formats cannot be transmitted
simultaneously.
GPIO
Eight channels are available.
The transmission direction can be switched by using four
channels as one group.
Supported Networks
Use this unit in a network that meets the following
specifications. Check whether the network you want to
use fulfills these requirements by performing a network
test in the web menu before use.
Note
The network test only displays the status of the area that
can be detected at the moment the test is executed. It does
not guarantee the quality of the network or the operation
of this unit.
Network connected to the MAIN connector
This network connects to the unit’s MAIN connector and
transmits video signals and control signals.
The requirements for this network are as follows.
• The network is a secure LAN independent from other
systems and networks. It cannot be used as a WAN or
Internet line.
• Use a Layer 2 switch with 5 or less levels. Routers
cannot be used.
• Interface: 1000BASE-T
• MTU: 1500 bytes or higher, no fragments
• Latency: 5 ms or less without fluctuation (one way)
• Bandwidth: 600 Mbps or more maintained
Network connected to the CONTROL connector
This network connects to the unit’s CONTROL connector
and connects the computer used to configure this unit.
• Interface: 100BASE-TX
Audio signals
Up to five pairs of two channels (48 kHz/24 bit) are
available for audio signals, analog audio signals, and
intercom signals embedded on HD-SDI signals (up to
eight channels in the same direction).
Note
HD-SDI embedded audio can be transmitted on Ch1 to
Ch2 or Ch1 to Ch4. The audio will not be transmitted on
Ch5 and above.
Metadata attached to HD-SDI signals cannot be
transmitted.
Tally signals
Three channels each are available for R tally signals and
G tally signals.
However, the transmission direction for all channels is the
same.

4. Video transmission settings
The direction of the video’s main line signal and the
number of transceiver channels are configured under
[Transmission Settings] in the [Structure] page.
• [Main Video Direction]: Select [Transmitter] for the
camera transmitting main line signals, and [Receiver]
for the video router receiving the signals.
On the Receiver side, the phases of the input SDI
signals and the SDI signals sent from the Transmitter
will match. On the Transmitter side, the phases of the
input SDI signals and the SDI signals sent from the
Receiver will not match (when [Frame Synchronizer] is
[OFF]).
Selecting the [Transmitter] and [Receiver] establishes a
pair. Communication will not be possible if both sides
are set identically.
• [Structure]: Configure the number of transceiver
channels. The number of channels for the Transmitter
and the Receiver should be inverted.
For example, in a 3-camera system with one return
channel, specify [3Transmit 1Receive] for the cameras
and [1Transmit 3Receive] for the video router.
Alternatively, if [3Transmit 1Receive] is specified,
specify [1Transmit 3Receive] for the partner device. If
[2Transmit 2Receive] is specified, specify [2Transmit
2Receive] again for the partner device.
The synchronization signal to be output from the REF
OUT connector is configured under [Reference out] in the
[I/O] page.
• [Format]: Select [HD] (HD 3-value sync), [SD (BB)],
or [SD (SYNC)] (SD sync) as the synchronization

Input/Output Phases for HD-SDI
Signals
This unit has phase requirements for input signals, and
proper transmission is not possible unless these
requirements are met.
Input phases
When using [Reference in] > [V Phase] and [Reference
out] > [V Phase] set to 0 in the [I/O] page of the web menu
as a basis, the Leader for network synchronization must
meet one of the following conditions, 1 to 3.
1 The input phases of all the HD-SDI signals are
synchronized with the REF IN signal, and the input
phases are synchronized within the –0.3H (fast video)
to +2.0H (slow video) range.
2 The HD-SDI input signals are all synchronized with
matching phases, but the input phases are outside of
the –0.3H to +2.0H range.
3 Under condition 1 or condition 2, only one of the
inputs is not synchronized or its input phase is outside
of the –0.3H to +2.0H range.
In addition, the Follower for network synchronization
must meet one of the following conditions, 4 to 6.
4 The input phases of all the HD-SDI signals are
synchronized with the REF OUT signal, and the input
phases are synchronized within the –0.3H to +2.0H
range.
5 The HD-SDI input signals are all synchronized with
matching phases, but the input phases are outside of
the –0.3H to +2.0H range.
6 Under condition 4 or condition 5, only one of the
inputs is not synchronized or its input phase is outside
of the –0.3H to +2.0H range.
Settings for condition 1
• Set [Reference in] > [V Phase] in the [I/O] page to 0.
• Set [Frame Synchronizer] in the [Structure] page to
[OFF].
Settings for condition 5
• Adjust input equipment, and configure the phases so
that they meet condition 4. Alternatively, adjust the
phase of the input equipment using [Reference out] >
[V Phase] in the [I/O] page and meet condition 4.
• Set [Frame Synchronizer] in the [Structure] page to
[OFF].
Settings for condition 6
• Refer to the settings for conditions 4 and 5, and
configure the phase.
• Input the unsynchronized signal to SDI IN connector 1,
and set [Frame Synchronizer] > [SDI in 1] in the
[Structure] page to [ON].
Note
Delays will occur if you use a frame synchronizer.
Output phases
When using [Reference in] > [V Phase] and [Reference
out] > [V Phase] set to 0 in the [I/O] page of the web menu
as a basis, the output phase of the unit’s HD-SDI signal
will be as follows.
When [Main Video Direction] is [Receiver]
A signal that matches the REF IN signal will be output.
When [Main Video Direction] is [Transmitter]
The signal will be delayed in relation to the REF OUT
signal. The amount of delay will increase the more the
network latency increases.
If you want to synchronize the output phase of the
Follower with a different synchronization signal, input
that signal to the REF IN connector, and set [Frame
Synchronizer] > [ALL] in the [Structure] page of the web
menu to [ON].
Note
Delays will occur if you use a frame synchronizer.
Settings for condition 2
• Adjust input equipment, and configure the phases so
that they meet condition 1. Alternatively, configure
[Reference in] > [V Phase] in the [I/O] page to match
the amount of shift and meet condition 1.
• Set [Frame Synchronizer] in the [Structure] page to
[OFF].
Settings for condition 3
• Refer to the settings for conditions 1 and 2, and
configure the phase.
• Input the unsynchronized signal to SDI IN connector 1,
and set [Frame Synchronizer] > [SDI in 1] in the
[Structure] page to [ON].
Settings for condition 4
• Set [Reference out] > [V Phase] in the [I/O] page to 0.
