The NLX-3 provides a unique monitoring solution for broadcast use to convert an SDI signal to an HDMI signal while providing additional audio outputs.
In addition to mono & stereo mode the NLX-3 can also provide an Lt/Rt multichannel downmix which allows for 5.1 audio to be mixed down to stereo.
The NLX-3 accepts one SDI signal and provides one reclocked output. An HDMI output of the input signal is available on a standard HDMI connector. Two RCA connectors are also provided for the additional audio outputs.
Selecting the mode for the audio outputs is done via recessed mounted DIP switch
Three LED's located on the front of the unit provide status indication that a valid SDI signal is present on the SDI input along with G1 and G2 LED's indicating if audio is present in Group 1 and 2 of the SDI signal for up to eight channels of audio. If a valid SDI signal is present the SDI LED will be illuminated green if a valid SDI signal is not present the LED will be illuminated red. The G1 and G2 LED's will be illuminated green if audio is present in those groups.
A 3.5mm TRS jack located on the side panel of the NLX-3 allows for remote level control.
Power is provided to the NLX-3 using the included 5 VDC adapter that uses a threaded locking DC power connector for added protection against loss of power.
