Tech Specs

One 10G Tessera Protocol copper input for connection from SX40


Supports Neutrik EtherCON Cat 6A / etherCON (CAT5e) connectors

Compatible with standard Cat6A / Cat5e RJ45 connectors

Requires Cat6A cable (up to 60m) or Cat5e cable (upto 30m)

One 10G Tessera Protocol fibre input for connection from SX40

Supports Neutrik opticalCON DUO / DUO ARMORED / DUO X-TREME / DUO LITE connectors

Compatible with standard LC-Duplex connectors

Requires 1310nm, 9/125um single-mode fibre (up to 2KM) with PC or UPC connectors

One 10G Tessera Protocol thru for daisy-chaining of additional XDs

Auto-switching between fibre and copper

Through port auto-switches independently from input

Up to 5 XDs may be daisy-chained

Position 1G output ports in multiple locations for cabling convenience

Bandwidth of each 1G port is shared between all daisy-chained XDs

Extend 10G cable lengths using an XD as a signal repeater

Convert between 10G fibre and 10G copper (or vice versa) using an XD as a media converter


Ten 1G Tessera Protocol outputs for connection to fixtures

Neutrik etherCON connectors, compatible with standard RJ45

Each 1G output supports a nominal 525K pixels at 8bpc, 60Hz

Pixel capacity per 1G port scales according to selected bit depth and framerate


No network configuration required - just plug in to an SX40 processor and it's immediately ready to use


Per-port LEDs to confirm link status

Built-in touch screen

Display of all Ethernet port link states and processor connection state

Display of current project name and XD name for easy identification in large installations

Configurable screen orientation and brightness
