Description


Overview

The MUSE products allow users to transmit video, AC power, RS-232 and IR signals up to 300ft (90m) over a single unshielded CAT-6 cable. The MUSE is powerful enough to power-up a 150 watt LCD display hundreds of feet away from a signal and power source. The MUSE family of products are fully compliant with HDMI and HDCP standards. Simplicity of installation makes it a “no brainer” to use MUSE in any AV system design.
