Sony has launched the NXL-IP55, a live production unit that is touted to dramatically improve the live production environment by offering simpler, more flexible setup configurations and greater operational efficiency.
For use in multiple-camera live productions, the NXL-IP55 enables systems to be configured over a Local Area Network (LAN) and allows users to transmit up to four HD-SDI video streams (three downstream and one upstream, or two downstream and two upstream). The system also supports up to 10 (eight upstream, two downstream) audio channels, including intercom and control signals including Tally, GPIO and generator locking (genlock), through a same LAN cable. The NXL-IP55 live production unit uses Sony’s unique technology to transmit all of these signals via a 1Gbps link, ensuring broadcast quality video and audio with very low latency of less than one field (1/2 frame) of video signals, depending on the network environment.
