Altinex Muse

While everyone is waiting for the arrival of HDbase-T 5 play system to arrive, Altinex has developed their own “Muse”(trademarked) system which is HDMI,Power (150watts),IR, RS232. Although not a true HDbase-T system, since it does not transmit 4k..it is more practical in todays technology since it can transmit HDMI 1080p and deliver up to 150 watts of AC power over standard Cat6 cable up to 100 meters vs. only 100 watts spec of the HDbase-T standard when 5 play is delivered to market.
This has lots of practical uses in tradeshow events, for installers- no expensive ac electrical wiring, one can basically hang a monitor anywhere and run a single cat6 cable and get power to it out of standard IEC/Nema powercord, as well as hdmi 1080p video up to 100meters away from power and video HD source.
The source needs to be HDMI and audio needs to be embedded as there is no seperate analog input on the transmitter input side, and the reciever side is
also straight HDMI with no analog audio breakout. This unit should be able to handle about any energy star 6.0 rated display in theory. I know there are
50inch 6.0 energy star rated ones that have 75watt rating which is well under the Altinex MU system specs that should be fine, It would be interesting to see in real world applications running some of the larger advertised 65-75in energy star 6.0 rated displays.
The great thing about the Altinex system is that unlike HDbase-T, one is not locked into certain display or proprietary option card(s) system, this can be attached to any display not exceeding the 150watt rating of the system. It also has about 50watt more headroom in the way of power compared to HDbase-T.
It is currently offered for sale as a system at 1149.00Focused Technology with tx(MU-400-111) and rx(MU500-112) as a Altinex MU600-001 Single Muse HDMI.
