PoE made simple on all Protege displays

Even though only the Pro4 and Pro6 have embedded Power over Ethernet splitters, and thus make it a simple one-wire run from a utility area to the display - NOW Pro8, Pro8a/w, Pro10a/w can also easily be professionally installed using simple CAT5e and PoE injector and splitters.  What are the specifics?  

See below for specs.  USE the 802.3at models for larger displays.

PoE Voltage Source Gear Requirement (IMPORTANT):
IEEE Std. 802.3af limits PSE power delivery to <13W at PD input (Type 1 PD). Pro4, Pro6
IEEE Std. 802.3at allows for 13W-25W power levels (Type 2 PD).  Pro8, Pro8a/w, Pro10

See the Power Consumption Specs on the website or call/email a wizard for more info.

Integrated Usability Wizard - Here's to Jobs!

We believe his greatest accomplishment is the maniacal attention devoted to usability - without which we are stuck with just hardware as has been the case for decades with others - think MOT, Nokia, MSFT and others.  And on top of this - Integrated Usability - with is the killer app, BTW - binding apps with other apps and hardware itself.  A truly holistic (and refreshing) approach that obvious hit the ball out of the park.  Thank you Steve for not leading via democracy!

Domestic US energy self sufficiency?

Since Protege is energy efficient we thought it worthwhile to chime in and say "YES" and we have ideas on how within 10 years. 4 simple steps:
1 Embrace conservation via higher gas taxes. 2 Use taxes to vastly improve ALL modes of efficient transport. 3 Embrace plentiful CNG and convert most and al new coal utilities to gas. 4 Oil is by far the most powerful and portable commodity for energy and cheap materials. Get with it and lessen DC hassling. Already regulated to max and generating 000's of jobs. Buzzkill not welcome. Nukes? Yes we need them long term. Look to France.

Integration is the killer app

App like applying integrated systems as a solution. That is, after all, most pros namesake. Protege can help. Without the need for a binding GUI, Protege can launch/toggle multiple apps like Comm+Content+Control on one reliable, affordable platform

Power misers

All Protege controllers use less than a 30W bulb and generally less than 20W! That's 10% of a power sucking PC!
